Are the new MBPs in store yet? If not, when will display units hit stores?

    I don't believe the demo models with Touch Bar are on display yet. I'm waiting for them as well. Want to see if I should jump up from the 13" to the 15" and I need some hands-on experience.

    Apple hasn't said anything; but if previous generations are any indication, the display models should arrive around the time they start arriving to pre-order customers. Generally speaking, products become available in-store for display on "launch day", though this model doesn't yet have a firm "launch day". For example, even though many stores didn't get even a single iPhone 7 plus jet black due to the demand and manufacturing issues; they still had display models.

    In the past I've seen display Mac's appear a few days before the first customers began to get them. But I would still expect mid-November before we see them on display in stores. Probably December/January timeframe before you can just walk in and buy one; without having pre-ordered it for in-store pickup. Folks are already seeing mid to late December shipping times.

    The fifth avenue cube in NYC had the new models with touchbar on display under glass last weekend.
