If my local Apple Store, Best Buy, MacMall, Newegg, Amazon, etc. at any point had the rMBP Ultimate in stock I would have jumped on it. I need the 16GB of RAM for VMs and none of the base configs will do.
Yea I would so love to get any 16gb MBPr config right now! I'm leaving for a trip next Thursday and would love to get that puppy in my hands... Looks like nobody is even close to getting it in stock... BTO Only?
