    Having trouble getting the new MBP :( everywhere seems to be out of stock or not even got any in yet, trying to avoid the apple site as i dont really want to wait 4 weeks and i prefer going at getting it from a shop. I live in Gloucestershire, but I dont mind traveling.

    How come its in such high demand?! Never had this trouble with apple stuff before.

    Thanks :)

    It's in high demand because it's cool.

    You might be a little late to the party but an Apple retail store is your best bet.

    Ahh ill try them, thank you!

    But PC world... really, haha. God I hate that place, got my iPad from there and they havent heard of customer service, when the mic broke they didn't want anything to do with me, and it was in the warrente!

    John lewis are good, sometimes you get 2 years warrente for free :)

    Stormfront is a good bet if you have one close to you.

    GET IN! Just reserved the last one from John Lewis!

    Bit of a drive, but better than 4 weeks wait!

    Does anyone know if JL do a student discount?

    Amazon currently have one left in stock, and it's 10 quid cheaper than RRP.

    Although it's an amazon merchant not amazon themselves.

    (irrelevant if you're after student discount. but if that's the case, you should definitely buy from Apple. Uni discounts bring the price down to £1530)

    No student discounts I think you can only get that from apple and/or a apple reseller.

    I have one on order from Stormfront.
    In theory they should have some stock in the next week.
    If not I won't be very happy!
    Their current stock position seems to be zero.
