Apple has managed to improve the shipping times for the 15-inch Retina display MacBook Pro starting with this week, and the change is already visible on its website.
At the moment, the company is listing
both the 2.3 gigahertz and 2.6 gigahertz models as expected to ship within two-to-three weeks, a recent report from AppleInsider unveils
The change was made as of Friday, and shows only a slight improvement in shipping windows from the previously listed three-to-four weeks waiting times.
However, it’s worth mentioning that this is the shortest shipping estimate from the Apple Store since mid-June.
The new shorter shipping times are listed on Apple’s web stores across Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America and South America.
As MacWorld notes
, MacBook Pro models
that do not feature the Retina display are listed on Apple’s website as being in stock, which means that users will receive their units shortly after placing orders.
The Cupertino-based company announced the new 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display no earlier than last month, suggesting that this was "the most beautiful computer” that Apple has ever made. The machine features a price tag that starts at $2,199.
The new model delivers a series of changes in design when compared to the MacBook Air, mainly due to the removal of an optical disc drive.
The device comes only with flash memory, which improved its thickness, as well as the battery life it has to offer.
Some of the latest reports around the web suggested that Apple was also preparing the launch of a smaller MacBook Pro model with Retina display, one that would measure 13 inch diagonally.
The smaller model, still unconfirmed for the time being, is expected to feature a lower price tag. Benchmarks for the machine
already emerged, unveiling a an Intel Core i7-3520M Ivy Bridge processor running at 2.9 GHz and 4GB of DDR3 RAM as being packed inside it.
