Just one day after its announcement at WWDC, Apple’s Retina display Macbook has sold out.
The 15″ Macbook sports the world’s highest resolution display ever put into a laptop, and costs a cool $2,200. When that price emerged, I imagine many were skeptical about how well it would sell, Apple has always been known for its premium products, but this is really, really expensive.
However, by yesterday morning, less than 24 hours after the WWDC keynote, the shipping times on the Macbook Pro had risen to at least 3 weeks.
The epic display has received huge praise since its release, however many believe this is also the cause of the supply issues, because naturally, it takes a lot longer to make than the other displays…
If you’re desperate, you could head over to eBay, where the new Macbooks are appearing for around $1000 more than the original price, an almost 50% markup. Expect to see very big numbers when Apple releases its results for the next fiscal quarter.
