The new 15.4-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is either out of stock, coming soon, on pre-order, or experiencing delayed shipping on almost every retail website, but it appears one seller is offering the latest Cupertino notebook on eBay—for roughly $1,700 more than Apple’s asking price.

The above eBay deal comes with same day, free shipping and includes insurance (if this is even considered a deal). Another eBay listing offers the base model MacBook Pro for $3,199 USD, but another $95.80 USD is required for USPS priority shipping from Canada.

It is probably safe to say these puppies are in high demand, as evident by the exorbitant price markups.

The high-resolution MacBook Pro unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this week priced at either $2,199 or $2,799. The low-end, cheaper flavor spotted features a 2.3GHz Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, 8GB of DDR3 onboard RAM, 256GB Flash storage, 1GB NVidia GeForce GT 650M graphics, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 15-4-inch widescreen LED-backlit IPS display at 2,880-by-1,800 native resolution. It also touts integrated stereo speakers, FaceTime HD camera, dual microphones, and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.
