The MacBook Pro With Retina display will ship from Apple in three to four weeks, the Apple Store website says.
This is a further delay from the two to three weeks Apple told customers they'd have to wait for the laptop as recently as a few days ago, technology website Vr-zone reported Friday.
That's a big change from Phil Schiller's announcement that the Macbook Pro with Retina display would be available immediately. Schiller made the announcement Monday during his WWDC keynote speech, when he announced the laptop's release, according to Tech2.com.
The fastest way to get a Macbook Pro with Retina Display may be to order one on eBay -- for at least $1,700 premium, 9to5Mac.com reported.
The reason for the delay? The high demand for the Retina display, which has gotten rave reviews, according to Computerworld.
The MacBook Pro with Retina display can be ordered from the Apple Store in either a 15-inch, 2.3 GHz Retina display or a 15-inch, 2.6 GHz Retina display model.
According to Apple's website, the laptop sports a 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor; Turbo Boost technology up to 3.6GH; 8GB 1600MHz memory; 512GB flash storage; Intel HD Graphics 4000; NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1GB of GDDR5 memory; and a built-in battery with up to 7 hours' capacity.
According to Tech2.com, the laptops ship with OS X Lion, with the option for a free upgrade to OS X Mountain Lion when it comes out this summer.
