    Hi guys! Recently decided to buy a retina MBP and am excited! However, missed the early order boat. Do you think it would be wise to wait on a Best Buy or Apple store option or try to order online? The online store is 3-4 weeks out and I want 16 GB on my rMBP. Any advice?

    retina MBPs have started trickling into Best Buy, if you have one that has a mini apple store inside it. Drop by for a visit. They only carry the 8gb flavor however.

    Personally, I ordered through apple, while it does mean waiting, I don't need to keep calling my local apple stores and/or best buys. What's another month when I've been waiting for the Ivy Bridge upgrade since January ;)

    3-4 weeks will pass in no time so I'd recommend ordering online. Plus if you want a non-standard config, you won't find those in stores.

    You could place an online order and keep checking the Apple Store and Best Buy for the next few weeks: if you find it at a store between now and then, just cancel your online order.

    Oops, I completely overlooked that you want 16gb of RAM. As Meever stated, online is your online option.

    If you want a customized 16 GB ram, online is your best bet.
