New Mac Pro Deliveries Begin, European Orders 'Assembled in China'

Apple's new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR became available to order last week and, on schedule, the first deliveries to customers have begun. The photos below were shared by MacRumors forum member K. Johansen from Oregon.

As suspected, it appears the new Mac Pro is only assembled in Texas for orders placed in the United States, Canada, and other countries in the Americas. French blog MacGeneration has confirmed that a new Mac Pro delivered to a customer in France today has fine print indicating it was assembled in China.

The new Mac Pro starts at $5,999, while the Pro Display XDR retails for $4,999.

Shame assembly for Europe was not done in Cork, Ireland. Many of my older Macs were assembled there from my Power Macintosh 8600 to G5 Quad.

Even custom spec iMacs were assembled there until very recently (or still are?) so sad to see they couldn't make better use of the Cork plant here.

11k for a base computer... yikes..
you’ve obviously never used a professional workstation. My first was a Silicon Graphics Indigo system, circa 1995, costing $45,000 in 1995 dollars. $75k equivalent today.

And this so-called “pro” computer can’t even play RE2 remake or RDR2. Can’t even use it to stream my Twitch show. My gaming rig DESTROYS this pathetic excuse for a computer.
gamers are obviously not the target market.

Interesting that a product assembled in and shipped from China, costs a UK buyer £2,000 more for the base Mac Pro and XDR Display (with stand) than it does for a US customer.

That is just untrue. A base Mac Pro is £5,499, an XDR is £4,599 and the stand is £949. So £11,047 including VAT or £9205.83 excluding VAT. In the US, a base Mac Pro is $5,999, an XDR is $4,999 and the stand is $999. So $11,997 excluding sales tax, which is £8,993.07 meaning that the difference in cost is £212.76 or 2.3%, which is more in line with the small extra profit margin Apple usually adds for markets outside of the US in order to factor in currency value fluctuations.

I would be very surprised if any person in the market for a Mac Pro, nay, any grown up in the UK, would struggle to understand the concepts of sales tax or VAT so it seems you are just out to complain and be negative for no apparent reason.

More likely it's a tax thing. In the US taxes are added after

This is fairly typical for high end workstations. Just think... you’re working on a feature film expected to do a $150 million at the box office, first billed actor earning $25M... an editing rig for $15k is a huge steal.
