Either Apple’s new Mac Pro have proven to be more popular than anticipated, or Apple is having trouble with production, but either way would-be Mac Pro owners are probably well-aware that some of them might be in for a wait. Last we heard those who ordered their computers online would have to wait until February and that in-store availability would only happen in March or April. However those are dates for the US, but it seems that Apple customers outside of the US have to wait even longer as new reports claim that Mac Pro shipping times for customers buying it online have been pegged for around March, meaning that customers will still be in for quite a wait.
The regions affected by this includes Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. Prior to this, Apple’s online stores had listed February as the estimated shipping time. However there are a lucky few in Europe who will receive their Mac Pros in February if they were quick enough to place their orders before Apple shifted the dates. It is unclear why Apple is taking so long to manufacture the new Mac Pros, but given that the new Mac Pros will be assembled in the US as opposed to China which Apple has done in the past, it could be that they are still getting up to speed. In any case hopefully Apple will get this under control and we can start seeing some more reasonable wait times.
