    I just went to purchase one they brought it out but told me I couldn't purchase it until Sunday - even though it was listed as "pick up today in store"

    Just a heads up

    Same thing at my local Apple Store. They had it in stock, but wouldn't even let me look at it let alone buy it. To top it off, they wouldn't give me a sell date.

    My Best Buy did not have any on display or in stock.

    I am returning the 15'' rMBP that I bought over 15 days ago (outside of return window) so they were already being nice - they told me I could come back Sunday and they will exchange it. However, I have heard many Best Buy's these things are sort of a gray area.

    ----------

    They may think so (my store did as well) until they actually ring it. Apparently the system won't even let them...

    They probably want the 10% and/or edu coupon to run its course first right?

    Or stock pile inventory

    10% off movers coupon stacked with $50 education coupon.

    This is YMMV but it is possible. I normally just tell the employee to just try it, even though I know it works in their system. Sometimes they say you can only use one coupon, but the system allows it.

    The coupons are good until the middle of April, so maybe there is another reason as to why they are holding back the inventory.

    That might be the case in that area. I know that you can go online and order it already, but maybe there is an agreement with Apple in his location. I can tell you that the Bestbuy I went to is a large volume store - so they were probably allowed to sell it. The macbooks were on the shelves above merchandise so they were not readily available, unlike the older ones.

    Again, a YMMV situation.....

    I went to a large volume store too in NYC.... Grr, but I have both coupons as well and hope to stack them. Thanks - Sunday is just a few days away anyways.

    I am in West Virginia, if you haven't been recently in the last few hours, best buy had a glitch in their system that wouldn't allow them to sell it but they can now scan the barcode and let you buy

    I don't know why but I have a real gutsy feeling that Sunday Best Buy is going to run a promotion on the "older" model rMBP 13" model to try and move them since the new ones are available..? Just a thought...

    they were probably talking referring about the 12" retina macbook, not the refreshed rMBP 13"
