THE RETINA DISPLAY Macbook Pro is already sold out the UK, as shipping time for online orders has slipped to three to four weeks.
Announced at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) on Monday, the Retina display Macbook Pro features a screen resolution of 2880x1800 and is nearly as skinny as the Macbook Air. It also boasts upgraded Ivy Bridge processors, up to 16GB of RAM, a maximum of 768GB of flash storage and improved battery life.
Despite the laptop's high price, Apple's UK online store is now promising to ship in three-to-four weeks, despite earlier this week promising dispatch within two to three weeks. Both the 2.3GHz and 2.6GHz Macbook Pro models have had their release dates pushed back too, despite costing £1,799 and £2,299, respectively.
This demand comes despite Ifixit's warning that the latest Macbook Pro is the "least repairable laptop yet", given its glued-in battery, untouchable RAM and oddly-placed Retina display, which if damaged could mean that the whole machine will have to be replaced.
