Several weeks ago a series of events transpired that generated a need for me to purchase a new 15" laptop. Here we are - fully six weeks since the MBP was announced and still virtually no in store availability - my on-line order is still a month from scheduled arrival. This is now a crunch on my business. Apple has no new 15" PB for sale and long wait times for the MBP. It is difficult to understand how a sophisticated company like Apple could put its customers and itself in a situation like this. IMO, this is not a simple "high demand" situation - everyone knew how overdue the laptop line was for an update - high demand could not have been a surprise. Supply is still VERY POOR 6 weeks post announcement. Come on Apple - get your production capability ramped up.
