I want to buy a new Macbook Pro as soon as they come out. Today I saw some reference online to "advance booking." What is this and how do I do it? I feel like I'm missing some secret that everyone else is in on...

I've Googled to only limited success in figuring this out. I see that you can pre-order at Amazon, but I want to pick it up in-store, and in any case the prices haven't been set yet which makes it hard for me to figure out exactly what specs I want. Not that I even know what the options will be since the new Macbook hasn't been announced yet! I'm just trying to figure out if there's something I'm missing here that will put me at the back of a zillion-person line by the time I figure it out.
If the answer is "Only special insider people can pre-order unannounced Apple products" or "What are you talking about, that's not a thing", can you walk me through anything else I'll need to know to get my hands on a new Macbook as soon as possible? I had a very frustrating and confusing experience trying to get an iPhone 4s after having completely ignored all the hype, so this time I'm trying to be a little more in the know.
