    When do we expect the updated retina Macbook Pros to appear on Amazon?

    I'm interested in Amazon.co.uk but an anecdotal evidence from other countries Amazon sites would still be useful.

    Yesterday all the Macbook Pros on Amazon were some £300 cheaper on Amazon than on Apple's website so if the new ones will be significantly cheaper and soon then I'll wait for Amazon.

    I need to sell my old 2009 Macbook Pro first anyway so I'm in no great rush.


    EDIT: Please post deals, good prices on here.

    Usually around a week or so. Amazon charges tax in my area so I won't be getting it from there.

    Usually about a week before they appear on Amazon? I hope so, I can certainly cope with that. :cool:

    Still nothing on Amazon.co.uk and I can't seem to see any of the refreshed models on any other UK based website either.

    How about other countries, are they starting to appear on Amazon and other sites?

    They appeared almost straight away on John Lewis.

    None in stock though.

    Old ones discounted.

    I noticed that on John Lewis too, looking like none being actually sold anywhere though until probably next week?

    Still not on sale on any UK websites? I can't find any, they've got to be this week, right?

    They had it listed even last week shortly after the refresh, but the shipping estimate was somewhere around the third week of August.
    I just took all the steps like I would be buying it, and I could even get it delivered by tomorrow - so looks like they've got some in stock.
    Hope this helps someone.

    For US customers Amazon has the entry level Retina available today at a 5% discount. You can also purchase it under the Amazon Smile program to support a charity organization of your choice.

    It's on Currys, PC World and John Lewis but the prices are rubbish.

    Still nothing on Amazon!

    Has anyone seen any good deals in the UK?

    The only best deal is higher education store. Only extra £50 you get full three applecare and the discount is 15% off for most macs.
