The Retina MacBook Pro is now shipping in just 2-4 business days from the Apple Online Store. This is the shortest shipping estimate the new notebook has seen since its introduction at WWDC back in June, and indicates Apple has now caught up with demand ahead of its iPhone 5 launch next month.
It didn’t take long for the Retina MacBook Pro to hit massive delays when it first started shipping. Within 24 hours of its release, shipping estimates had already hit 4-5 weeks, and it took more than a month for that delay to be reduced to 2-3 weeks. Earlier this month, that estimate was reduced again to 5-7 business days.
But you can now order a Retina MacBook Pro today and have it delivered to your door before the weekend. For customers in the U.S., shipping estimates are now 2-4 business days, while international Apple stores are simply listing the Retina MacBook Pro as “in stock.”
Apple appears to have caught up with demand just weeks before it is expected to unveil the iPhone 5, which will undoubtedly send its suppliers and assemblers into overdrive once again.
