Apple's Mac Pro Shipping Estimates Slip to April in Many Countries

Shipping estimates for new orders of the redesigned Mac Pro have now slipped to April in many of Apple's stores around the world (via MacGeneration) [Google Translate].

mac_pro_shipping_estimates_april
This is the second time in two months that the Mac Pro has showed a change in shipping estimates, as Apple's stores around the world began to show a "March" shipping estimate last month. While the new shipping estimates do not necessarily reflect a worsening supply given that shipping delays have been persistent so far throughout the computer's launch, the changes do indicate that Apple has yet to make up significant ground as lead times appear to be remaining in the six-to-seven week range.

The new April shipping estimates are in effect for stock and custom configurations throughout Apple's online stores for Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific (APAC) operational regions. Estimates in Apple's stores for the Americas remain at March for the time being.

Update: Shipping estimates in the Americas have now also moved to April for all models.

Well no. You want them to, but they don't need to. Clearly people are willing to wait. Hell, people waited this long for the update, what's another 2-6 months?

IMO this would be a poor way to deliver customer service. If the message from the top is, 'eh, they waited this long, they can wait longer,' that speaks volumes to how the company feels about you, it's loyal customer. If anything, production should have been shifted to meet demand for the people who have clearly been waiting a long time for a product that is far from just a unneeded gadget.

I have ordered three and I have only received one to date . Based on my experience and a quick calculation, since I ordered the last two together on December 20th and they shipped two days apart, they are manufacturing approximately 1 1/2 Mac Pros a day. Plus or minus 1 Mac Pro of course.

Glad to hear there is high demand. Seems like an amazing machine and this will at least keep apple interested in the professional side of things for the foreseeable future.

It isn't just high demand... It's also a case of under production. They should have stuck with Foxconn and China instead of playing the "patriotic" card.

A quick channel check is showing that there are no shortages of parts to build a Hackint0sh. :D


LOL..... "April". Who wants to wait until APRIL?
Until Cook shutters that factory and moves production to China, expect more of the same.

Absolutely everything suggests you are a troll:
-Your avatar
-Your childish way of argumenting and writing
-Your signature

Do you really think anyone takes you seriously this way?
