I've called a few UK Apple Stores and they can't tell me if they'll be stocking the high-resolution anti-glare MacBook Pro because they don't have any stock yet and they haven't been told yet.

I'd rather know if they are or aren't - if they aren't I can order online now, otherwise I'd rather wait till its in store so I can check it out before leaving.

Anyone in the US able to tell me? I'd have thought they'd have their stock sooner?

I think they'll have some of the available in stores. They had the 17-inch AG of the C2D MacBook Pro in stores so I don't doubt they'll have the 15-inch in stores. It will also be a way to advertise the 15-inch with a higher resolution something that we haven't seen before on a Apple portable.

I'd imagine they will, just can't say how long it'll take. If they didn't have them on display I'd be surprised. They have both 17" versions out at my local store, and I'm guessing they're going to try and promote the increased resolution, as obviously Apple get more money from it.

They had the high-end MacBook Pro in anti-glare available in store prior to this update.

I see Engadget just posted a review and unboxing of the Core i7 MBP.

Doesn't state that it is the high-res one, but they imply it is in their description. This would suggest the high-res are available in store, so here's hoping the anti-glare is too.


It appears that the high-res antiglare will not be available in store in the US.
Where you find that out?

I suppose that's a good point - the higher resolution is a selling point and would make sense to have it available in store as opposed to having to send customers home to order online.

How exactly do they imply that it is a high-res display? They seem to be pretty clear in saying that it is NOT high res:

"Sadly the review model we were provided doesn't have the new high resolution display option"


does anyone have a high-res model in hands? or seem them at the stores?

I'm talking about the Unboxing and Preview post. The actual review was posted a day after I posted here! To quote Engadget's post:

"..and new configuration options when buying, such as getting yourself a 1680 x 1050 high res display (yes, please).."

The (yes, please) implied that they had got the high-res one.

Obviously their review posted yesterday stated they didn't, so nevermind..

Just called the Glasgow store. They said they don't have it in yet, but it is something they are expecting.

No idea if the girl was sure or not. Going to give them a call tomorrow once more stock arrives and fingers crossed they have one!

The Bullring (Birmingham) store didn't have the hi-res version. The staff weren't aware it was an option. Will attempt to look at the Solihull store today, providing my glasses get reglazed in time.

Gave a call today to the Pittsburgh store; no dice. They didn't get any in their shipment today.

Odds are they'll probably fulfill CTO shipments before delivering unsold machines to their stores.

Sweet.

So it is the same as the last time then.

Highest end 15" and 17" available in anti-glare in store, rest of the models BTO online for anti-glare.

Called the Ann Arbor, MI store just now and they got a shipment of 15" MBPs with the 1680x1050 display, ANTI-GLARE. The associate I spoke with didn't seem to be aware of a same resolution glossy option, but he did read off the specs of the shipment they got and they indeed sound like they have the anti-glare hi-res MBPs in store.

Is it fact that they won't carry base 15" in antiglare in the stores?

Sometimes the employees are not well informed. I hope it's not the case or I'll have to buy mine online and wait longer ugh.
