Standard versions ship in 1-3 days, but gold still more popular with some buyers
As they used to say on Twin Peaks, "it is happening. Again." A new Mac product available in gold appears, and buyers go crazy. The solid-gold Apple Watch, despite its $10,000 opening price, appears to have had its limited inventory snatched up quickly, pushing availability now back into August for online pre-orders after just the first few hours. Apple has likewise seen a "gold rush" for its similarly-colored (but not actually made of gold) new 12-inch Retina MacBook.
