Business customers see delays for Retina MacBook Pro orders

updated 10:20 am EDT, Wed June 27, 2012

Some launch-day orders pushed as far back as July 25th

Some launch-day business orders of the Retina MacBook Pro are being delayed, according to buyers. The computer went on sale June 11th; some people given a 7-10 day delivery quote at the time, however, are now saying they're getting emails with new dates as late as July 25th. In a sample email, Apple attributes the problem to "an unexpected delay."

The holdup could potentially be related to choosing custom configurations, since people who wrote into MacRumors note that they all upgraded to a 768GB SSD. The new Pro has been in relatively high demand, and Apple may not have been prepared with enough higher-capacity SSDs. The delay is unlikely to be related to general production issues, since more orders would have been affected. At the moment, however, Retina Pros are only estimated to ship in three to four weeks at Apple's online store.

    Delivered early

    I ordered my Retina MacBook Pro on the launch date and was quoted a delivery date of 6/22-6/26, to my surprise it arrived on the 16th.

    Not only did it arrive early but I was surprised how much faster it is than my early 2011 Macbook Pro (Quad i7, 2GHZ). I was also surprised that it supported multi-monitor setups which the old unit did not.
