    Just a day after Apple added new build-to-order configuration options to the low-end Retina MacBook Pro, shipping estimates have improved from 1-2 weeks to 5-7 business days in the company's online stores. The faster turnaround time is showing up in the company's online stores in the Americas, and should spread to its Asia-Pacific and European distribution channels shortly.

    Shipping estimates for the Retina MacBook Pro quickly ballooned to 3-4 weeks within 36 hours of the machine's introduction in June, holding at that level until mid-July before beginning to come down. The most recent improvement before today came nearly two weeks ago when estimates moved from 2-3 weeks to 1-2 weeks.

    You don't give a ****** so much you had to tell people? Sounds like you're trying to convince yourself of something.

    But I'm more interested in knowing when ship-to-store becomes available.

    Hoping my ordered model ships today then. It's been a week. I could really use it as soon as possible.

    I don't get this? Why is the shipping time the only thing holding you back?

    Was really hoping the 13" retina would be available before tax free weekend. Doesn't look like that will happen.

    Lucky, I ordered mine on 7/25 too and Apple's website says "processing." I hope after work today I come look at my phone and find it's been shipped.

    I'm happier about the customization options now than the shipping time. I can now order a low end retina with the big SSD. That is, if I was ordering a retina. But I'm probably not until there's an anti-glare option.

    Nice.

    So anyone with a shipping estimate past the Aug 13th, they should cancel and reorder today. :)
