In-Store Pickup Now Available for MacBook Pro With Touch Bar

Starting today, Apple has made in-store pickup available for the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar in the United States, allowing customers to check stock at their local store and reserve a machine online.

The MacBook Pro first started popping up in retail stores on Tuesday, but because there was no in-store pickup option, there was no way to tell which stores had stock and which didn't. It's now much easier to see which locations have MacBook Pro models available for immediate purchase.

Many stores around the country are listing December 30 pickup dates for the higher-end 13-inch MacBook Pro model and the two 15-inch models, but there are some locations where the new MacBook Pros are currently in stock. The entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar appears to be much more widely available than other machines.

A MacBook Pro with Touch Bar ordered from the Apple online store today won't ship for approximately four to five weeks, so checking local stock on a daily basis is a good way to get a model with a standard configuration much more quickly.

Prices on the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar start at $1,799 for the 13-inch model and go up to $2,799 for the 15-inch model, with additional processor, storage, and GPU boosts available for additional fees.

Not even interested enough to check it out IRL. Sorry Apple, after decades of loyalty, you've lost me with this one.

As a Pro user, the biggest issues facing my creaking MBP are (1) thickness, and (2) excess ports.

Wait, no I got that wrong.

Yes, the low cost entry level 13" model is available in some stores.

I'm sorry, what?

I don't know what kind of street drug you guys are smoking, but my loaded 15" is wicked fast. It's also stunning.

I think this is the best example yet of how well the hardware integrates with the OS. It's just ridiculous. Not one hang-up. Even running many VST's and plugins for audio. I finished a nice, 4K training video on it last night as well.

I'm sorry, but it's already exceeding my expectations. Maybe an attitude cleanse? Also, I can't fathom that this many people are actual proffesional that actually need this kit. Sounds like a bunch of $30k/year "millionaires," to me. Some people buy enormous trucks... Clearly a lot of people buy computers that are overkill. Compensation, guys?

I think many just can't get over its price! I also think this could be a good breaking point to keep people where their needs actually are. If you can't justify $3500 for peace of mind in an ecosystem you must have, there are plenty of Asus ROG's out there for your $2000 to keep your spec and worthless (yet future proof) 32GB of RAM.

I'll tell you first hand... You get what you pay for!

Yawn. Keep 'Em, Apple. Not currently in the market for a lack of ports, soldered everything, extortion-level pricing, and probable GPU issues.

Why bother whining like a baby completely unrelated to the tread title?
Boo hoo poor baby, no MBP for you.

Sorry, just too much money. Would feel like a chump paying that much. Most people with money have it partly because they are careful how they spend it, getting value for their purchase dollars.

Honestly think its better to wait for v2 of this notebook. The scary part is, will we have to wait 3 years for it?
