As soon as the Apple event ended on the 18th, the new MacBook Pros were put on pre-sale. The fastest could have the opportunity to reserve them and that the estimated shipping dates were in early November and even late October. For the most lazy or indecisive, the dates were already at the end of November, beginning of December. There have not been many variations since then and the first ones already see how the American company has warned them that your new Mac is on the way.
The first pre-orders of the 2021 MacBook Pros are already on the way. At the end of the event, Apple gave the possibility to reserve the new 14 and 16-inch computers with the new M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. The first reservations indicated an estimated time of arrival of 15 days. In this way the first terminals would arrive at the end of October, beginning of November. That’s how it is. As seen in this message sent by the user @OpaqueSphere, your order is on its way and is expected to arrive on schedule.

All this occurs a couple of days before the official launch of the computer takes place. This is done by the company so that all orders reach their destination on the established dates. Recall that the MacBook Pro announced at the event on the 18th They will be available for sale officially, tomorrow, Tuesday, October 26. At that time you can buy them and if you are lucky there may be stock of the model you want in an Apple Store. Although I doubt it a lot, since I do not believe that the company sends many models to stores to cover these contingencies.
You have to wait and especially if you want it as a gift for Christmas, I don’t think you should wait much longer. It is preferable to have it a few days before staying without it.
