MacRumors reports the new 12-inch Retina display MacBook, launching today, is only available via online orders, for delivery to your home, or ship to store.
A significant number of users have turned to Twitter and other social networks to voice their frustration that Retina MacBook in-store stock and display models at many Apple Stores in the United States and other launch countries are nowhere to be found.
The publication also called several Apple retail locations in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, and received the same response at all of the stores, “unavailable,” at least on launch day.
The new MacBook is likely not the most important item on Apple’s agenda today, as this is also the day pre-orders and try-on appointments for the Apple Watch begin.
Retina MacBook shipping times are currently at 3-4 weeks for custom configurations, and gold stock models as well. Silver and Space Grey stock models are showing 1-3 days for shipping estimates.
The new 12-inch Retina MacBook starts at $1,299. It features an ultra-thin design, retina display, a redesigned keyboard, Force Touch trackpad, and a single do-it-all USB-C port. For more information, visit the Apple website.
