Shipping Estimates Improve to 2 – 3 Weeks on MacBook Pro with Retina Display

Just one month after launching, the new MacBook Pro with Retina display has finally seen an improvement in shipping estimates through Apple’s online retail store.

The website now lists the new MacBook Pro as shipping in two to three weeks, which is an improvement on the previous three to four weeks estimate that had been in place since just a few days following the June 11th launch of the notebook.

In-store availability of the new MacBook Pro with Retina display at both Apple Stores and third-party resellers has varied depending on location.

After performing a few online stock checks and phoning a number of stores in the southern Ontario, Canada and western New York region, many stores are still carrying extremely limited supply of the notebook and several other locations claim to have absolutely no stock whatsoever.

The new MacBook Pro is ultra thin at just 0.71 inches — and just 4.46 pounds — and has a high resolution Retina display that packs 2880 x 1800 pixels across its 15.4-inch display. That’s 220 pixels per inch and 5,184,000 pixels altogether, making the new MacBook Pro the “world’s highest resolution notebook display.” The notebook also features flash architecture, dual USB 3 and Thunderbolt ports and faster Ivy Bridge processors by Intel.
