    Ok so I bought the 15" MacBook Pro touchbar 2.7ghz I7 with 500gb of storage. The thing is, the storage might be too low for me. I'd rather get the 1tb of storage with the 2.9ghz and the AMD 460 so it doesn't lag in the future.


    The only issue is that it estimates that It will take a MONTH to ship!! I was planning on ordering that laptop and when that came, I would return this so I am not left without a laptop. Since the return policy is 14 days and the laptop will take 30 days to come, I will be without a laptop for a little over two weeks. Plus its ridiculous for me to lay out that much money to wait a month ($3,700).

    Did you guys order the similar specs as me? If so, how long did take for it come???

    Thanks :)

    What is the rush? Do you need it for a business or something?

    I ordered my Space Grey 2.9 / 460/ 1tb on 12/20 and it just arrived today. I'm stoked!

    Although I do find this keyboard is a bit louder than my 2012 as I'm typing right now.

    A $3k to $4k computer to play Sims? What kind of class requires such a computer?

    No wonder students leave school with so much debt...

    I have the money and I'm not in debt?

    I want a laptop that will not be outdated in specs in 2-4 years until the new generation comes out.

    I have a Porsche and I don't drive it to the grocery store. What's your point?

    Hate to say it but your new MBP is already outdated. Kaby Lake?

    There is no high wattage Kaby lake processors, so no it's not. It's like saying there are new v4 engines out so your v8 car is out dated.

    Op, 460 2.9 1tb machines are one of the only custom configs that Apple stores usually have, so you can just try and walk in.

    Ok? I don't understand your point. If anything, you proved my point. If you bought a Porsche and don't drive it to the grocery store, thats your own money that you earned and spent. You then decided how you want to use it. I'm not going to ask why you bought it to not drive it anywhere, am I? Well I want to spend money to get the higher end model, so whats the big deal? Am I preventing a kid from Africa from getting this specific model? No. If you have nothing relevant to say in this thread, then don't say it. Your answer had NOTHING to do with my thread.

    Ok thanks for heads up! I will now check the stores inventory occasionally as I have the pre-order going (which ever comes first).

    I called my local apple stores and found a SG 2.9, 1TB, 460 in mid November. It was a bit of a hassle but worth not having to wait weeks.

    P.S. Wherever you end up getting it from, make sure you get the education discount. It slices off a little over $200.

    Your post makes no sense. There are electric carts that will smoke both. Engine size is not the point. My point is you don't need a Rolex to tell time. Great if you can afford one, but not needed for such a menial task. Needing a MBP as soon as possible to play Sims sounds a bit pretentious and excessive. Ridiculous really.

    You said that the new mbp is out dated because of Kaby lake did you not? The point is that the only Kaby lake processors are low power and aren't comparable to the processors in high end machines.

    How long after searching did it take for you to find it? Also did it say it was unavailable online and you called ahead and they had it? I would rather just check online than call all the stores around me haha.

    And Yes, I did do the educational discount. You save over $300 including apple care and etc. Totally worth it!
    Once again, your posts have nothing to do with my thread. It's my money and I will buy what ever I want with it. If you want to buy a Porsche, go ahead! If you keep commenting on this thread I will report you. So stop commenting useless information,Thanks.

    Eh, he wasn't demanding it, he was simply saying he would rather have it sooner than later, something i'm sure almost everybody would agree with. This is macrumors, 90% of the problems you deal with are gonna be excessive and ridiculous. It doesn't mean that you have to go stomp around angrily trying to make others feel bad.

    + Maxed out my 15' a year ago for the same reason, thing is still lightning fast, and I'm sure it will last me another 5 years AT LEAST. Well worth the extra money for another couple years of usage.

    I searched for about a week. Yes it says unavailable online, I noticed when I arrived at the store the Apple employee stock checked it on his iPhone and it had a yellow check mark. Apparently it does that when there is less than five in stock and it won't say available online. So your best bet is to call the store and when it asks "how may I help you today?" just say "store manager" to get directed to the retail stores operator. They usually don't have a problem telling you if they have any in stock.

    As anybody with a Porsche would know, there's always something faster and cheaper.

    But anyways not sure if that person got reported or if my ignore option worked, but they don't seem to be around anymore, good luck getting your computer OP, it's gonna be a hell of a machine.

    The fact that there's ways to skip it. It's like when the new iPhone comes out and people are pissed that somebody walked into the store and bought that model that they were quoted "3-4" weeks when they pre-ordered. They just picked one part of the line, theres ways around waiting, and if I was spending that much money i'd look into those ways so I could get the product that I just dropped a ton of cash for as soon as possible. In my personal opinion as soon as the pre-order/buying page slips from its first quote you should abandon the Apple site.

    Sorry, I meant it by that I think its ridiculous to lay that much money out first instead of putting down a $1,000 deposit. If anything, they should charge you when the product is about to ship.

    Don't know what you are doing differently? If you bought it from Apple, then they don't charge you - not even any deposit - until product is about to ship.
