Apple’s 12-inch MacBook has been backordered since it was unveiled back in March. The Silver and Space Gray models have come in and out of stock a couple times, but the Gold model has been nearly impossible to nail down.
But right now MacMall has a range of models in-stock and available for shipment as soon as today including both standard configuration Gold models. What’s more, each model is $10 below Apple’s price and MacMall only charges sales tax at the time of purchase for buyers in a handful of states.
If you were to order those models right now from Apple.com it would take upwards of 5 weeks to receive your new Mac. Shipping times from other resellers aren’t much better: Best Buy shows 4-7 weeks, Amazon just says “This item has not yet been released,” and B&H just lists “coming soon.”
MacMall has gotten a couple MacBook inventory refreshes over the past few months, but they always sell out quickly.
The all-new 12-inch MacBook features an ultra-thin design, Force Touch, Retina display, and a reengineered keyboard. Not sure the new MacBook is for you? Take a minute to read our review. expand full story
