    Just curious if anyone has a good estimation of when availability of the new retina MacBook will be down to 24 hours.

    It took over a month to go from 3-4 to 2-3, a little over a week to go to 1-2, and a little more for 5-7 days. Is there any way to predict this? Just curious when it'll finally be available in the EPP, as I heard somewhere they wait until it hits 24 hours to make it available.

    Sorry if this is the wrong area, but any insight would be awesome. Thanks!

    Patience is a sign of maturity. Lack thereof suggests this may be an impulse buy. Is it _that_ important?

    My employment with a company that offers a substantial epp store discount is coming to an end soon. I ask because if this computer wot be available within this time frame, I will purchase an upgraded non retina MacBook. I would have just bought something two months ago, but I've been patient in waiting for this computer to be available. If it won't within the time I need, then there's no reason to wait anymore..

    I would look back to when the 27" iMac was made available. It had a similar early couple of months if I remember so that might give you a good idea. My guess would be that within 2 weeks we'll see it down the 2-3 days and then by early Sept it should be 24 hours
