    I was gutted to receive an email from apple today stating that the new estimated delivery date for my 13" rMbp (with maxed out upgrades) which I ordered from the education store on Nov 11th was now the 17th December. Given that I was originally stated a delivery time of 4-6 days this seems utterly ridiculous.

    What if they extend the delivery date even further into the new year?

    I need this machine urgently for work!
    Is there anything I can do to help (complain, get freebies, etc?)

    Is this anything to do with hardware issues relating to the trackpad freezes or something else?

    Some in another thread have gotten discounts or freebies by simply contacting Apple Customer Care and complaining. I called today, and didn't have as much luck :( The delay seems to be due to a 16gb RAM shortage.

    Demanding freebies is not exactly conducive to your situation. If you make noise and get bumped ahead in the queue, someone else misses out as such.
