Earlier this year during WWDC 2013, Apple took the wraps off their new Mac Pro which features brand new hardware along with a rather interesting design that is a pretty obvious departure from the previous generation Mac Pros. The next question we’re sure some of you guys are asking is when will the computer be released? Apple has given us a “fall” timeframe, and it looks like production could soon be kicking into gear as Flextronics is currently in the process of hiring 1,700 people to work on a “next-generation desktop computer” at their factory in Austin, Texas.
The company declined to reveal what they were working on, but given that the Mac Pro will see assembly in the US, and with Flextronics being Apple’s rumored US manufacturer and with the plant located pretty close to Apple’s local offices, many believe that this recent wave of hiring could be to help Apple begin the manufacturing process of the Mac Pro. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now and don’t get your hopes up just yet, but rumors have pegged the Mac Pro’s release for sometime in November, so to hear Apple and their partners getting ready to begin production and assembly would not be a stretch of the imagination.
