    I am waiting for Best Buy to get them in stock since I don't live near an Apple Store.

    I would do the same thing. But they don't get the education discount

    Yeah when I bought my 2009 Macbook they gave me it after I asked. Didn't even bother asking for student ID

    Maybe it depends on the store. The one we have has a full Apple section.

    Same here. I might have to drop by tommorrow and ask. Literally live 3 minutes away and I'm a reward silver member. The closest apple store is like 45 minutes.

    I am not sure. I have checked the website and nothing on it so far. I would much rather get one from an Apple Store but I am still waiting for Apple to expand more stores in Florida.

    Me too. The closest bestbuy is 15x closer. Let me know if you hear anything.

    Probably, over the weekend someone mentioned that tomorrow is an apple store vacation blackout date.

    I really hope my local Apple Store has them in stock tomorrow. The shipping time is now a staggering 2-3 weeks on the online store!

    I held off getting one earlier too online because I was hoping the in-store pickup option appeared today. Now after watching shipping go from 3-5 days to 2-3 weeks I am worried I made the wrong choice.

    I called like every apple store in Florida and they all said they had no idea when they would be in stock except one where the guy told me he had the regular macbook pros and would have the retina displays tomorrow.

    This leaves me checking every 20 mins the website seeing if a update is made. Anyone have any idea when apple stores normally update inventory online? Do they only do it during store hours?
