The local Apple Store in Leawood, KS said they wouldn't be in the store until April...
I asked twice, "When will you have the new 13" MacBook Pro Retina?"
Genius, "First week of April."

Hmmm... I'll call back tomorrow.

This thread is about the display models.

Looks like reading comprehension isn't your strong suit...
I asked when it would be in the store. Not when it would be available for purchase. :rolleyes:
You never did. You have to specifically ask "when will you have demo units", and not "when will you have <product>".

Every store is going to assume you're asking when you'll be able to buy it, that's why your AAPL store told you "the first week of April".

We can argue semantics until we are as blue in the face as the shirt you wear to work.

I asked when the new mbp retina will be in the store.
Genius, "April."

Seems cut and dry to me.

I seem to remember there is an old adage about assumptions.

Doesn't really matter....the 13" rMBP isn't in stores at least in my area yet.

None are in stock yet in Grand Rapids Michigan either.. debating whether to pay $22 for next day shipping online and get it Thursday or Friday.. Apple retail stores are saying they don't know or have any information on when their shipments will arrive.. I'd rather just drive down and buy one if they had them in stock.

Anyone seen any in-store personally yet, or via website store check availability in your area?

Not yet in store stock as of 4 pm EDT the day AFTER the announcement. Even the store employees said that traditionally they had them by now on previous
New releases...

Not looking good, I checked online ordering this morning and I could have received one Thursday or Friday. A few hours later it sunk in the stores are not getting them today so I ordered online and the arrival dates estimation slipped to Monday - Wednesday of next week. I called apple and the rep said that's because orders are now being serviced from the factories overseas..implying the U.S. apple online store has already run out.
