MacBook Pro Shipping Estimates Slip to 3–4 Weeks for Models With Touch Bar
Oct 27, 2016 5:18 pm PDT by Juli Clover
The new MacBook Pro has only been available for purchase for about six hours, but shipping estimates on the machine have already slipped from two to three weeks to three to four weeks, meaning orders placed now won’t deliver until late November or early December (November 25 to December 2).

Three to four week shipping estimates apply to all MacBook Pro models that have a Touch Bar and Touch ID support. At launch, those machines had shipping estimates of two to three weeks and delivery windows from November 17 to November 25. Supplies are likely to continue to dwindle as people place orders for the updated MacBook Pro models.


The new entry-level MacBook Pro without a Touch Bar continues to be available for delivery as soon as October 31 using the fastest shipping method. Apple Store pickup is not yet available for any of the MacBook Pro options, but the standard MacBook Pro should be in stores soon.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro with no Touch Bar is priced at $1,499, while 13-inch Touch Bar models start at $1,799. 15-inch models, which all include a Touch Bar, start at $2,399.

Apple is also continuing to sell 2015 MacBook Pro models, which are available at prices starting at $1,299.

Hey guys, we're getting a lot of bad press today. Change the website to show that MacBook deliveries are slipping by a few weeks.

I was really hoping folks would protest the direction Apple is heading with their wallets but it doesn't seem that's happening yet.

I love when people on this site complain about a new apple product they've never used - They're usually proven wrong. iPhone 7, for example, people here were saying - apple can't innovate - its boring. Well its selling like hotcakes and personally my Jet Black 7 + is the most gorgeous phone i've owned and i find it amazing! I'm sure when people get to demo these new MacBooks they'll find the touch bar amazing and extremely useful.

And so the absolute disgraceful launch tactics of Apple continue. Produce minimum stock, announce, delay delivery by 2 weeks on the first day and build up demand.

Happens with every single product they have launched since Angela started.

It apparently seems to work, except to completely piss off all the customers who didn't manage to order within the first hour..... Well done Apple.

Just another fine reason to lose more customers. it is amazing.

Did you ever think that maybe Apple is making products that many many people want?
