First Online Retina MacBook Pro Orders Arriving

While we noted early yesterday that the first Retina MacBook Pro orders had begun shipping, a number of MacRumors readers are now reporting that the first deliveries are already arriving.

At least one of the readers who received his new MacBook Pro had ordered a custom configuration, bumping the high-end stock model to the 2.7 GHz processor and 16 GB of RAM.

A few customers have reported being able to obtain the new Retina MacBook Pro in-store, but many Apple retail stores still do not have any stock of the machines beyond the display models, with some now indicating that they will not have stock until Monday.

(Thanks, Trevor and Jeremy!)

yup you will definitely need to boost your ram to at least 8 gig when you order..

Standard is 8GB - the option on both is for 16GB.

If I were ordering I would do the max ram as you can't upgrade it in the future.

Does the screen really have those pinkish and greenish hues I'm seeing in that photo?

I hope you're being sarcastic.

The Retina MacBook Pro already comes with 8GB of memory. Also, how is a comment on memory relevant to this thread?

Do you honestly not see what I'm talking about?

Are you serious? Does that mean that the aluminum on his macbook has a reddish tint as well? Seriously it is just the lighting in the room and the camera used to take the picture. No pink tint
