Mac Pro Shipping Date Slips To April



Excessive demand and limited production cycles have pushed the Mac Pro’s estimated shipping date back to April.

The high-end machine, available in both Quad-Core and 6-Core editions, was originally supposed to ship in December, before being pushed back to February, then March, and now April.

Initially, the shipping estimates reflected only foreign markets including China, France, Germany, Japan, and the U.K. — but Apple’s online stores in the U.S. and Canada were quickly amended to also show the new April date.

While this is unlikely to have a detrimental effect on the price of Apple stock compared to, say, the late shipping of a new iPhone (the total Mac division at Apple accounted for just 11% of revenue for the December quarter) it will both help to drive up the costs being charged by eBay sellers, and also continue to make the Mac Pro among the most desired Apple products out there, due its scarcity.
