MacBook Pro with Retina display shipping estimates slip to 3-4 weeks as initial shipments begin

“Shipping estimates for the Retina MacBook Pro continue to slip, with new orders now estimated to ship in 3-4 weeks across Apple’s online stores. The slip to 3-4 weeks comes roughly 24 hours after they slipped to 2-3 weeks,” Eric Slivka reports for MacRumors.

Slivka reports, “But while new orders will take some time to arrive, some of those who were able to order their machines soon after the online store came back up on Monday are beginning to see their orders ship.”

  1. I’m trying to decide if to get the cheaper Retina model or the higher priced normal model (both much the same price).
    I could live without firewire I guess and I havn’t watched a DVD in years, but a ethernet port is still handy where there are crappy wifi networks (at work) and plugging in is still a better option. Hmmm what to do…

  2. In spite of the price, they sold them all.

    Ironic, after reading all of the negative comments on Huffington Post yesterday, where the general consensus among the Apple haters was, no one is going to pay 2200-dollars for a laptop with a fancy screen.

    In fact, one person said, for that much money, it should do dishes and take out the trash.

  3. Gads. I’m in a quandary…

    I have a mid-2010 MBP (6,2) with a 2.53GHz Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and 500GB HD and was thinking of “super-charging” (i.e. 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD upgrade) it or getting the new Retina MBP with the 2.3GHz Core i7, 16GB of RAM and 256GB SSD (Apple Store Price is $2,399).

    Cost to upgrade my existing MBP is $776.98, which I can then sell on in about 6 months to a year and get a refurbished Retina MBP around that time.

    There is no immediate need to get a new system… but I would like to start learning how to use Final Cut Pro, which my existing system should be adequately powerful enough in it’s proposed “super-charged” form.

    On the other hand, it would be nice to get a MBP with a Thunderbolt or even a USB3 port for external storage of my archives and video footage.

    What would you all do?
