Even though the new MacBook Pro has only been available since late this morning, Apple’s shipping estimates on the new notebook have slipped from two to three weeks to three to four weeks, meaning orders placed now won’t deliver until late November or early December.
The three to four week shipping estimate now covers all MacBook Pro models with the new touch Bar and Touch ID built in.
The new entry-level MacBook Pro without a Touch Bar continues to be available for delivery as soon as October 31 using the fastest shipping method. Apple Store pickup is not yet available for any of the MacBook Pro options, but the standard MacBook Pro should be in stores soon.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro without the Touch Bar retails for $1,499, while the new 13-inch Touch Bar models begin at $1,799. The 15-inch models begin at $2,399.
Apple is also continuing to sell 2015 MacBook Pro models, which are available at prices starting at $1,299.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
