Macbook Pro 17" with Anti Glare display not shipping to South Africa

Today, nearly 6 weeks after spec orders for the new 17" Macbook Pro with Anti Glare display started shipping internationally, Apple South Africa announced that it was not yet in production!
This seems contrary to the fact that they are advertised to be shipping readily within a few days everywhere else in the world! AppleUSA AppleUK AppleAustralia
Apple SA distributor The Core Group:
Please be aware that feedback from Apple on MacBook Pro 17" Anti Glare is that this particular SKU has not gone into production yet.
We do not have ETAs from Apple.
The Core supply chain team continues to push Apple to get a more accurate ETA but at this stage we do not have any more info.
We fully understand the frustration but at this stage there is little we are able to do until we have more info from Apple
We will update everybody at the point we have more info.
Is South Africa just a low priority backwater or are there indeed issue's with production of the Anti Glare model?
