List of Apple Stores With 12-Inch Retina MacBook Display Models

Following our own list of Apple Stores carrying the Apple Watch Edition that we published last week, we now have a crowdsourced list of Apple retail locations that have 12-inch Retina MacBook display models set up in the United States, Canada, China, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain and United Kingdom. Given how quickly this list will likely change, we will not be updating this article and recommend keeping tabs on the MacRumors discussion thread instead.

Since this is a crowdsourced list by MacRumors forum members, only some locations have been independently verified by us to have new MacBook display models in store. Apple Stores that did not have new MacBooks available on launch day should receive them in the near future, as many retail employees confirmed to us that Apple was expected to be delivering display models soon. Keep in mind that this list covers display models only and not in-store stock of new MacBooks available for purchase.

Apple's 12-inch Retina MacBook became available to purchase in silver, space gray and gold on April 10, the same day that Apple Watch pre-orders began in the United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan and United Kingdom. The notebook starts at $1,299 for the base 256GB configuration, while a 512GB model with a slightly faster processor is available for $1,599.

The 12-inch MacBook, positioned at the lower end of Apple's notebook lineup, paves the way for the future with an ultra-thin design, one USB-C port, redesigned keyboard with an all-new butterfly mechanism, Force Touch trackpad, fanless architecture and all-day battery life. Initial reviews of the new MacBook found the notebook to have major design appeal, but too many key compromises.

Australia No Stock

Not sure if anyone here cares

but here in OZ

No stock and no display

Apple employees are clueless and say they have no idea.

This has to be the worst launch of apple products in recent times
even the iPhones had a display unit on launch

Yeah this is really bad and unexpected. It just feels so rushed....and unorganized. Plus I kinda liked checking out the new features of the machine at the Apple Store where I could get immediate help with a $1400 device if there happens to be a problem.


While I have no interest in buy a uni-port notebook (no matter how thin), the only reason I can see that Apple released it before there was sufficient stock (if that is really the issue), was that they were unsure about releasing a uni-port model and are taking a "careful" approach by letting a few dribble out and see what happens.

Rideau (Canada): None on display, none available
Bayshore Shopping Centre (Canada): None on display, none available

Even through the website, the MacBooks started at 3-4 weeks in Canada. In effect, it has not launched here yet.

The Novi Michigan store had them on display last Friday but none for sale.

The new head of retail should be fired for this inept launch.

If you're in the greater Seattle area, the Apple Store at Bellevue Square Mall in Bellevue, WA has all three (gold, space gray, silver) Retina MacBooks available to try.

Fun fact: Microsoft is the largest employer in Bellevue.

So, why does Best Buy have physical stock then?

I remember when I bought my TiPBG4 in 2/2001 at CompUSA, people at AppleInsider were moaning about that store having stock while people were being quoted 2 month wait times for their order.

Georgetown, Washington, DC store has them on display. They look nice. Played with it for a couple of minutes and did not see any issues with the keyboard.

At this point, it's probably easier to list Apple stores that *don't* have them on display.
