If you haven’t already ordered a new Mac Pro on Apple’s website, don’t count on it arriving before the holidays are over. Shipping estimates for Apple’s just-released Pro have been pushed back to February, which is a sure sign that the computer is facing significant supply constraints.
After being on sale for less than a day, a quick visit to the online Apple store will show that every Mac Pro configuration won’t ship until February. The fact that Apple didn’t start selling it until the latest possible moment in 2013 also speaks to stock shortages. Apple had promised all year that the product would ship by the end of 2013, and it barely fulfilled that promise.
And if you think you’ll be able to just waltz into an Apple Store and pick one up, good luck. Apple’s business clients have had their pick of the litter by now. It’s worth calling an authorized reseller in your area if you’re that desperate, but getting your hands on a Mac Pro before February will be quite the stroke of good luck.
