Seriously. I'm on day 57 of my order, and there are plenty of people with orders older than mine.

By the time I get my Pro they'll have released OS X 10.10.

Sorry to here mate.

Apple seriously should not have picked Texas to build these things. They should have gone with the Mac mini as the first Mac to be made in America, not a halo flagship model like the Mac Pro that professionals have been chomping at the bit for.

Plus anyone I have ever talked to born and bred in Texas has told me that I needed to slow down my speech patterns because they couldn't keep up with me... :p So just imagine them having to put something together like this. ;)

But seriously I would like to know what the yield has been out of that plant of units that have made it to customers' hands.

Anyone know if that data is available on the web anywhere?

I ordered mine in January, Apple claims it will ship in February and I was charged for AppleCare yesterday (received my bluetooth keyboard and trackpad last month). With 2 more days in the month, it's listed as "in process". Having spoken with reps yesterday, I was assured it will arrive by the end of this month. That baby better ship today or tomorrow, or I'm gonna have a first world problem with customer care LOL :p

We received ours today... ordered it mid-January. It was BTO 12-core D700's 64GB... so I imagine that was part of the lengthy delay.

Really think the delays are related to the Mac Pro being manufactured in Texas? Aren't the CPU's still supply constrained?

Could we move discussion on delivery to fitting threads and not fill this one with off topic galore?

Ah ah ah the queue could be long, but don't worry they sold a lot of these machines considering it is a professional Mac. Only in my shop we have many orders, in a little city in Italy. Clearly demand has been very high considering production volumes.

After downloading the update, a grey screen (normal) appeared, so far so good! Now where is the progression bar voor the update itself... none. Let's wait and get some coffee!

After being away for several minutes, i think about 7, still nothing.. Oops


Didn't have any problems with mine - Mac rebooted, screen went grey and fan blew at full for about 5 seconds and then it rebooted again to Mavericks

The firmware upgrade may have fixed the issues I had with my nMP, like unresponsive mouse/trackpad, Thunderbolt Display and USB devices. It got so bad that I had to do a hard restart twice a day...

But then again, it may also have been fixed by reinstalling OS X, as AppleCare told me to do on the very day the new firmware was released...

Now trouble free for two days, oh the joy!
