    Hey


    I found the new Macbook pro on Amazon and bhphotovideo with the same price and shipped by Amazon it self. But I am wondering if I buy it from Amazon or bhphotovideo will it have same availability date as Apple? or who orders from Apple will get it first then Amazon or bhphotovideo will take much longer to be able to get it from Apple and ship it?

    I don't mean delivery time. I mean availability time. Like Apple started to ship some orders this week so should I expect Amazon to ship some orders too?

    Why don't you email or call both? I find bhphotovideo is very friendly via email or landline calls!

    I don't think that will happen. Right now for example the mid price $1,799 13" shows a four to five week wait for shipping on apple.com. As long as that exists, I don't see Apple providing third parties any stock at all.

    I am not used to them so trying know from people who tried them. Customer support not always says the bad sides...

    Also I asked Amazon and they don't know the availability date so I want to know from the people who tried Amazon before for pre order Apple products

    If your wallet allows, put your name in Apple and Best Buy's hat and order one from each. Who ever fulfills first, cancel the other. Until then, I doubt any of the other retailers will be able to deliver before these two. Though if they do, cancel both.

    I can't buy from Apple or Best Buy because they don't ship to freight forwarders and I can't really use non US card. That's why I am looking to buy from a site such us Amazon

    I read that third party retails like Amazon will start shipping on the 17th. is it true?
