Nearly six months post launch, base configurations of the new Mac Pro are now available to ship within 24 hours from Apple's online store for its North American and Asia Pacific regions. Base models in other countries are still listed at 3-5 business days, but those should also move to 24 hours soon. Custom-configured models are listed as available to ship in 1 -2 weeks in most countries.

In addition to orders for shipment, base Mac Pro systems are now also available for same-day Personal Pickup in select U.S. Apple retail stores.

Apple's latest Mac Pro model is assembled in the U.S. at an Austin, Texas facility run by Flextronics. Tim Cook and Eddy Cue recently visited the factory, which has been receiving praise for bringing manufacturing back to the U.S. The plant is approximately a mile away from Apple's expanding Northwest Austin campus that has added more than 700 workers with the recent first expansion phase and eventually will add 3,600 employees to the previous 3,100 employee campus by the end of 2021.

Since the Mac Pro debuted at the end of 2013, Apple has been quiet on the hardware front in 2014, pushing out a small upgrade to the MacBook Air and a new 8 GB iPhone 5c for some markets. Apple is rumored to be working on a Retina MacBook Air and new iMac models, perhaps including a more affordable iMac that will address growth in foreign markets.

You're probably right, and with that in mind, I ordered a nMP Wednesday, delivery expected Monday. Looking forward to retiring my 2009, 17" MBP..... Long Media Composer renders have become annoying.
Isn't it amazing how impatient we've become. Five years ago for example that new shinny MBP I bought seemed to be lightning fast.... It's speed hasn't really diminished, just our need for bigger, better, and faster.
Monday can't arrive fast enough.... Huh, see what I mean?

If you've updated the OS regularly, the performance probably HAS diminished. Mavericks is cool, feature-wise, but it's slower than Snow Leopard, to a very large degree.

A year ago yesterday, this was announced. Think about that one.

Man they gotta get their factory sorted for generation 2.

About time! My clients have been very patient waiting for them over the past 6 months, glad to see I can finally tell them "a couple weeks" instead of "a couple months." :D
