This is expected for new Apple products, and the iPhone 4S did the same thing within hours, although I wonder if Apple could ever meet demand.
Four weeks is a long wait though..Apple should be doing better.
they can but they won't. nobody really expect the retina display will be this huge. its way too many risk to boost up the production at that time.
how should they do better, there are to many constraints, shipping time for materials (which other companies use), then manufacturing can only be increased with price cost to scale until technology production methods can lead to economies to scale. You are ridiculous the only way to do better would be to push back realise and boost inventory at this time.
@Jihaad_cpt I'm no Apple fan but even I acknowledge the fact that if Apple sold a polished turd with an Apple logo there would be ridiculous demand for it. Going on that, yeah...they should be doing better and pre-empt the fact their crap sells faster than anything else on the market.
Call it what you want, its just marketing to me. "We can't even keep up with demand!!!!" Console makers do it all the time, same with a bunch of other electronics makers. It just makes you want it more, and this works perfectly with Apples marketing.
Come on man, I'm not even a huge fan of apple but I would never compare a $300 - $500 console to a $2200+ laptop. There is a significant price difference there. You would think that more people are willing to shell out $300 than $2200. They probably didn't believe people would buy it like this. As for iPhone, soon as those things were available, they were shipping them. Maybe they create false shortages, but judging from the numbers sold in the first week, I think people just buy them. Just look at the lines they form when a new iPhone is released.
Buy their stock...
