    I have a preorder through Power Max and they sent out an email today with the following information - I can't vouch for its accuracy but it could explain some of the conflicting responses people have gotten from stores.

    LOL no stores including their own will have them for 3-4 months. Yeah that doesn't sound right :rolleyes:

    I agree it sounds off, but many people have posted here saying they called Apple stores and were told they would not be in stock.

    EDIT: Apparently other stores have confirmed they have stock? It just sounds like a mess.

    For tomorrow, yes. But I see no reason why they wouldn't be in the Apple stores after the weekend.

    Seriously, 3-4 MONTHS! BS... I could see re-sellers not getting them at launch and having to wait a few weeks maybe even months but no way would they release a new laptop and not have stock at a flagship store for a quarter of a year.

    PowerMax continues their well deserved reputation for a mediocre existence.

    Sooooo.... you get the option either to order with PowerMax who will "charge your card and wait", or just order from the Apple Store who will wait, then charge your card at the moment of shipment.

    That's a useful store then.

    agreed, even iPhones don't have such a long wait time. the only thing has such a long shipping hold was the mac pro. but the mac pro was a made in USA product, apparently macbook isn't.

    I work in an Apple Specialist reseller location. I will vouch for the part where they're on allocation (so every reseller has a fair chance and bigger resellers don't get to hog it all). We were told allocation could last up to 10 weeks, similar to the Mac Pro, but orders will be released as fast as they can be, being no longer than the stated time on apple.com. The only exception being CTO machines with the 1.3ghz processor.
