Apple has once again revised its advertised availability date for its new smash-hit portable, the MacBook Pro.

As Macworld reported last week, the front page of Apple's online store had been updated with a little green tag on the product icon which said, "Available in 24 hours". The product page previously revealed a two-day wait until newly ordered MacBook Pros would ship.

That icon has now disappeared.

As reported last week, Apple has been ramping up availability of MacBook Pros in the UK, but perhaps not by as much as the ill-fated green tag briefly claimed.

The full product page continues to warn of a two-day wait before the product ships in the UK The US store promises new orders will ship in 24 hours.
