Gone into the apple store more than a dozen times in the last 3 days(i only live 3 blocks from it). They were only shipped ONE rmbp and luckily it was the higher end one and luckily i showed up 10 min after it got delivered. Today i had gone in every hour to check if the shippment had arrived. All the employees stopped and applauded, and were like"dude, congrats on getting the only one!!" made me feel special. Now I'm writing this post on it while i wait for diablo to finish downloading. Heres a pic.

edit: they did have 4 on display but took one down while i was buying this one. also all the rmbp's they had on display were the lower 2.3ghz version

It's fanboyism/nationalism. Nothing wrong with it in moderation:apple:.

Haha, when we got my white iPhone 4S, One of my friends (who is an employee) shouted out, WE SOLD A 4S, and everyone in the store just started cheering and clapping and saying congratulations.

Um. Ok? Probably would have been easier to just order it online for pick up in store.

Well the cheering and shaking hands with all the Apple employees was great fun, they even gave out free water bottles for everyone! (was awesome since we waited like 9-10 hours outside)

But yeah, when i had the iPad and walked pass all the people waiting in line i was aware that some insane person would go out and rob me :D but weren't freaked out or anything.
