Unexpected delays slow delivery of custom-built MacBook Pros, Apple says - Page 2

post #41 of 84
I don't understand why none of the three 15" MBP models include high res and/or anti glare screens as a standard feature. I would think 15" MBP with better screen would be more popular than offering $2200 i7-based 15" MBP.

Simple, they aren't the most popular choices. I checked out the 15" high-res and as much as I'd like for certain things I won't buy it until RI is in place because everything is way to small for my liking.

I feel for everyone who is yet to receive their MBP.

I ordered this configuration at about 2:30pm on the first day they came out:

2.66GHz Intel Core i7
stock 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRM
500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200
15" high-res anti-glare screen

The delivery window was the 16th to 21st, and it arrived 2 minutes before the FedEx suggested delivery time of 10:30am on the 21st. I called Apple on the 16th just to see if there was any chance of getting it before the weekend, the woman said no, I gave a sob story (though true) of being a professional photographer with two jobs coming on the weekend I was really hoping to have the MBP for, and she said she gave me the fastest 2-day shipping option possible.

Another delay was migrating my data from a 13" MacBook, it hung at less than a minute left and took over 6.5 hours to move less than 200GB of data. Then my Logitech VX Nano mouse went crazy taking a few hours of research to get to at least an acceptable level of performance. Anyone use the MS 6000 mouse and like it? Thinking of changing.

Can't wait for Nik Software to upgrade the Color Efex & Silver Efex plugins to 64-bit so I can use Aperture 3 in 64-bit mode instead of still having to use it in 32-bit mode.

Other than that, everything has been pretty good with the new MBP so far, it is dead quiet. Only a junk flash game on Facebook has caused the fan to go on so far.

I ordered 2 hours after the update was released. 15" MBP, i7, 8GB, 500GB 7,200RPM, Hi-Res Antiglare. Just arrived about 20 minutes ago. It's a thing of beauty if you haven't seen this screen. Worth the wait, even if your's has been delayed.

Yeah, I had to laugh at that one as well.

I received this big box with just the Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adaptor just yesterday as part of my shipment.

I understand they couldn't fly because of Eyjafjallajökull (the bloody volcano), but according to the TNT newsletter, they're back to normal schedule for several days now. I'd expect the shipment to at least move on now...

Somehow Murphy really likes me, the last MBP I ordered took 3 weeks to arrive, instead of the estimated 7 days. Guess I can only wait and hope that it will eventually arrive before the next generation is out.

I don't think that volcano has long to go. Most of it is on my car now.

So did you end up buying $2200 i7 version? I am not saying high res should be a standard feature across all models. Rather, that it should be a standard feature on one of 3 standard models instead of being a build-to-order option (i7 seems more suitable as BTO).
post #50 of 84
Well I was hoping with the upgrade Apple would offer a 13-inch MBP with an anti-glare screen. I guess I go with the 15-inch now.

I'm not seeing the connection between the high-res display and the fastest 15" MBP. I can see a case users buying the entry level 15" MBP user with Core-i5 and wanting the high-res and/or AG displays. I can also see a case for those wanting the top-end 15" MBP with Core-i7 also wanting the standard display, for the reasons I already mentioned. Until RI can allow the user to adjust the UI elements at will there simply can't be a marketing strategy that tries to up-sell the high-end 15" MBP with a high-res display as standard.

Me, I'm almost certainly going for the entry level 13" MBP. My other option was the entry-level 15" MBP. The additional cost for the better processor isn't worth the money, for my needs.

I beg to differ. I have had a Scorpion Black WD 320 in my C2D for nearly a year now without any problems or hiccups.

Quiet and reliable for me.

Resolution independence.

You can turn it on in Mac OS X Leopard and Snow Leopard. 1 is the default value, 0.9 would make 10% smaller, 1.5 would make it 50% larger, etc.
Code:

defaults write -g AppleDisplayScaleFactor 1


You'll have to restart an app for the change to show up, including Finder.

Yes, but ordering a BTO MBP takes longer and locks you into buying from Apple online store.

i7 MBP boosts negligible performance benefit over i5 (BareFeats has done several benchmarks between the two models, all measuring between 0 to 15% improvement), so I think it is more suitable as BTO for those needing every ounces of extra performance. Higher res/anti glare screen, on the other hand, is something that is more dramatic for those wanting extra real estate space.

Of course, because it's a less common request. If/When higher-resolution displays, Anti-reflective, 512GB SSDs, etc. became the most common requests then they will be the standard builds. As it stands now these are not the most common and therefore aren't standard issue.

If at some point the top-end Core-i7 with high-res display becomes the most requested option then you'll likely see these in the stores and have this be the standard, with or without the BTO option to fall back to the lower ppi display.

Its weird how almost all of you in your specs listing of your new MBP have chosen i7 and have chosen 8 gigs of ram, considering my posts on this website EVERYone has said get 4 gigs and buy new 8 gigs for cheaper down the line if you want it, and EVERYone has said how i5 is just as good as i7.
Funky.

I cannot speak for everyone, but I found that Apple's price for the 8BG upgrade was very close to OWC and others, so why not?

As for the i5 to i7 upgrade - $200 difference.

I'll take all the extras I can get as I expect this MPB to last me at least 4 yrs.

I dont disagree at all, its true the other 8 gigs of RAM for a MBP on newegg are $300-$450 so the $360 price point for 8 gigs from apple is good. I guess they were just telling me that you could be happy with 4, and in 2 years if you need 8, DDR3 memory will be cheaper then so it would only be like $150-200. I have had that conflict however in my head with the fact that i plan on getting apple care after 1 year is almost up, so thats 3-4 years of warranty, and i think changing your RAM voids the warranty (not sure).

As for the i5 to i7, i completely agree, i plan on getting i7 anyways. But its interesting all of them said get i5, its the same...yet everyone on this thread thinks like me, which is get i7..its only $180 more and...why not? lol

I find that my 4GB is more than enough for my needs. Even if it was only $150 more I wouldn't buy it.

You can change your RAM and HDD without voiding the warranty.

Yeah i figure 4 is enough, but they say 8 is really for photo/video/music editing considering those are so taxing on your RAM, and though im not into those things, i plan on dipping a toe into the waters of editing, eventually maybe diving in.

Ok good to know thank you, im glad it doesnt.

This⬆⬆⬆

I am typing this on a 12" Powerbook 867MHz G4 running Leopard. It's seven years old and is used every day for hours. I built my new MBP to have everything as fast and big as I could since I will keep it for at least four years. Who knows, maybe even seven.

And remember that if Apple installs the RAM they warranty it. If you use third party RAM and have a problem, that is the first thing they ask you. They ask you to remove it before they will attempt repairs.

I only ordered the base 13" MBP model on the 22nd April and the delivery estimate is the 11/12th May. WHY?! It's not like it has the in-demand i5/i7 processors or a hi-res screen. Not happy.

I find the lack of HD screens to be surprising. Why isn't 1080p available?

Finally got a call back from TNT that said my MBP had left Pudong Aiport on April 24 (after getting stuck there on the 19th), today it has reportedly arrived in Brussels, so it should only be a matter of days to get to Switzerland now. The dude on the phone said that they had a huge backlog of shipments in Shanghai because of the volcano. Must have been huge indeed, if it took a whole week to get rid of it.

I will be happy to report my experiences. However, I never have used ANY MPB once they started using C2D without having a Zalman ZN-NC2000 twin-fan cooler platform underneath it.

They are quiet, portable and seem to do the job.

Hey Zelf, I also have the same configuration. I ordered it on 19 and it hasn't been shipped also. Guess our MBP will be shipped together on the same cargo. Any update on shipment. Please tell me !!! Can't wait putting my hand on this beauty \

Mangogo, you'll be happy to know that I checked my Order Status at 8PM EST tonight, and it now says "Prepared for Shipment"!!!! I am willing to guess that yours is either on the same cargo, or very very close behind!

I can't wait! FINALLY! After ALL these years, I will finally be able to make the leap from PowerPC to Intel! I can't wait to play games- oh how I can't wait to play PC games,

Guess I should get started with Half-Life, and work my way up to Crysis? hahaha
