Retina Display Equipped MacBook Pro Shipping Delay Extended Due To Excessive Orders

June 15, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

There is an unlimited craze for high definition displays among the gadget lovers. That craze is making Apple find it difficult to meet the excessive orders for its new Retina Display equipped MacBook Pro. As a result, the company has prolonged the shipping delay for the Retina Display MacBook Pro further.

Just two days ago, the official page for the Retina Display equipped MacBook Pro in online Apple Store was showing a shipping delay of two to three weeks.

But now, the page shows that the delay has been increased to three to four weeks. The delay is applicable to both the 2.3 and 2.6 GHz models of the machine.

The demand for Retina Display equipped MacBook Pro can be easily understood by comparing it with the status of the non-Retina Display brothers, since they have no shipping delays listed in their official page.

The demand for the Retina Display MacBook Pros is increasing despite them having a bulky price tag of $2,199 and $2,799 in the starting.

Though there were reports that the machine is made in such a way that it cannot be repaired or upgraded since the batteries are glued in and RAM is soldered in,  Apple fans seems to have given no care to such warnings, considering the burgeoning orders for the device.

It is also interesting to note that the third generation iPad faced a shipping delay of two to three months only after several days of its launch. So that shows that the company did not expect such a high initial demand for Retina Display MacBook Pro.

However, lucky folks who have put their orders early will be getting their hands on the device early next week.
