    So, I bought a new Macbook Pro (stock 15 inch no customization), on Apple's U.S store, and to my dismay discovered the waiting time to be.... 2 weeks!

    Is this normal? I remember ordering a 12-Inch Powerbook and getting it within a week (shipped after a couple days).

    Are others also getting this much wait time? Its a bit ridiculous IMO...

    shortage of LCD screens due to high demand. you can either wait or buy one in store.

    and when they say 7-10 waiting day u bet its atleast 7 days for MBP. I know coz it took me that long to get mine. The previous refurb Blackbook I bought sometime back also had 5-7 days waiting but was shipped within 2 days. Wasnt took lucky with MBP. Maybe LED screens are really in short supply!
