Mac Pro Deliveries Begin in Europe for First Time in Nearly a Year

2013_mac_pro Deliveries of Apple's redesigned Mac Pro have begun in Europe, marking the first time in nearly a year that customers there have been able to obtain the company's professional workstation, notes MacGeneration [Google Translate] (via 9to5Mac).

Sales of the previous-generation Mac Pro in Europe were halted as of March 1, 2013 due to new regulatory requirements regarding I/O port power and fan guard placement. Rather than update the aging machine to comply with the new regulation, Apple elected to withdraw the Mac Pro from sale at that time.

Orders for the new Mac Pro began in mid-December, and while the first deliveries of stock models occurred in the United States in time for Christmas, it took several more weeks before deliveries began in Europe.

Currently, Apple's stores in Europe and elsewhere list a ship date of February for new orders of the computer.

Update: This article has been revised to clarify that the halt to Mac Pro sales in Europe was a decision by Apple not to update the previous Mac Pro to comply with the new regulatory requirements. It was also edited to emphasize that deliveries of the new Mac Pro are just now beginning in Europe. The machine has been available to order since mid-December when it went on sale worldwide, but short supplies have led to lengthy lead time on orders.

Did anyone think that the nMP would still be banned..? :confused:

It's not. This is a very odd macrumors article. Makes no sense. It went on sale before the USA technically because of the time difference.

Slow news day?

Yeah it's been available for a couple of weeks now in Europe. Engadget posted this today, so......go figure.

slow news day = copy other tech site even if it's old news.

NOTE TO MODERATOR: WHAT IS THE POINT OF THIS ARTICLE? nMP HAS BEEN ON SALE FOR WEEKS THROUGHOUT EUROPE.

Not complying with a regulation is not the same as being banned.

"Mac Pro Sales Resume in Europe After Previous Ban"

WHY IS THIS A STORY TODAY??

THE nMP was released 3 WEEKS AGO(!) in Europe along with almost everywhere else in the developed world. Why point out the fact 3 WEEKS after the event?!?

It was the OLD machine that was proscribed due to not meeting modern standards, so why on earth would the new one be banned anyway?!

A COMPLETELY DORK ARTICLE!
