    Hello forums!

    I'm new to the whole tech company keynotes/presentations and so I'm curious as to wonder if there's a period of wait time after they announce something do the product actually go on shelves for us to buy?

    I'm hearing all these possible* dates like Oct 17 for example, would the laptop be on sale Oct 18?

    Super desperate because I lost my rMBP in a car crash 3 weeks ago and as an university student have been trying my best to wait for the new one but it's been exhausting and difficult trying to go through school without a computer, REALLY close to just buying another 2015 rMBP or maybe the 2016 MB....

    Most of the time they're ready that same day for order, or very very shortly thereafter. At least that's what I remember from recent Mac releases.
