With Apple doing quite well for themselves in the consumer market, naturally their focus would be shifting towards the enterprise sector. However it looks like if you’re an Apple enterprise customer who has placed an order for the 15” MacBook Pro with Retina display, you could be in for a major disappointment as there are reports that the laptop has been delayed for up to a month. These reports come from MacRumors who are claiming that they are hearing that some enterprise customers have received emails from Apple notifying them of the delay.
Originally quoted shipping estimates of 7-10 days, the new date has been set for the 25th of July. While it has not been confirmed what’s causing the delay, those who are received the emails have apparently configured the high-end option with a 768GB SSD. Assuming the upgraded SSD is the main reason causing the delay, you might want to think about going stock for your storage options unless you don’t mind a month’s wait. Then again given the popularity of the next-gen MacBook Pro, we guess delays are inevitable, but one month does seem like a pretty long time to wait for a laptop.
