Despite being the notebook with one of the longest names on the market, the MacBook Pro with Retina Display is undoubtedly the most popular. That’s the reason why demand has been high and shipping timeframes long. However, not that long anymore, because as of this Saturday, the waiting time for the MacBook Pro with Retina Display has been reduced to only one to two weeks in the Apple store.
That’s an improvement over the previous 2-3 weeks lead time reported for the MacBook Pro with Retina Display. Last week, MacMall, a known reseller of Apple products, finally got inventory for the new MacBook Pro for the first time in weeks.
Prior to the previous week, lead times were at 3-4 weeks for the MacBook Pro with Retina Display. Things seem to be getting better slowly but surely as Apple copes with the massive demand for their new Retina Display-enhanced MacBook.
Meanwhile, there has been speculation of yet another MacBook Pro with Retina Display, a 13-inch version that has not yet been announced by Apple. Benchmark site Geekbench revealed a mysterious MacBookPro 10.2 on their June tests.
This device comes with a 2.9 GHz Intel “Ivy Bridge” processor, an i7-3520M. The battery may also be larger than the 6,580 mAh battery found on the 15-inch version currently sold by Apple. If this device eventually is announced and launched by Apple, that would give the Cupertino, CA company two MacBook Pros with Retina Display, providing more options for consumers.
