Similar to fgirl post earlier. My rMBP will hopefully get delivered July 6th - 3.5 weeks after ordering. However - My credit card was charged for the Apple Care, the On-to-One, and various power cords and adapters - none of which I can use until I actually receive the rMBP. Apple charged $500 to my credit card for these items on the day of the order (June 13) but I still have no computer to use any of these cords or services. A little bit different than fgirl, its not like I have a display I can use with other computers. Most of the money is for services that I can't begin to use until I have the computer (One-to-One and Applecare) Its not like I am going to need service or training on some cords that I can't even plug in. I talked to several people at Apple Support and they all understood that is the way the Apple charging system works - a couple of them did acknowledge that I was getting no value yet for the $500 that Apple has already received from Visa. They said most of the time with overnight shipping this is really no big deal because it is just a day or two difference. They said they would check into changing the timing on the charging for items related to products that have extensive delayed shipping. Oh well, I guess Apple needs the cash flow more then me.
