According to shipping times currently listed on Apple’s US online retail store, US, Canadian and some European customers are now required to wait between two to three weeks to get their hands on the kit.

The MacBook Pro with Retina Display is one of Apple’s most successful in its laptop lineup, with the £1,799 device selling out within days of it going on sale in June.

At the time, customers were told they’d need to wait between three to four weeks for their delieveries to arrive.

The MacBook Pro with Retina Display was launched at Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference last month, with the firm’s CEO, Tim Cook, referring to it as the “most beatufiul” laptop they’ve ever made.

The MacBook Pro with Retina Display is one of Apple’s most powerful laptops to date, even winning one of T3’s rare five star reviews.

T3 magazine deputy editor Matt Hill wrote: “The much anticipated jump to a Retina Display is, as you'd expect, a revelation.

“The 15.4-inch backlit LED screen is of such a high resolution – 2880x1800, at 220 pixels per inch – and its output so crisp that you can read 10-point text on it if you're sitting on the other side of the room (we'd worry about you if you tried it too often, though, as it's a laptop), while colours dance and contrast is excellent."
