Apple to Halt Mac Pro Sales in Europe Effective March 1 Over Regulatory Requirements
Apple today issued a notice to European distributors indicating that it will halt sales of the Mac Pro in Europe and select other countries as of March 1 due to new regulatory requirements going into effect on that date. The move will affect all European Union countries, as well as EU candidate countries and the four European Free Trade Association countries: Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland.
It is currently unclear exactly what aspect of the regulation the current Mac Pro will fail to meet.
Apple has uncharacteristically announced that a redesigned Mac Pro is due in 2013 after a lackluster update in June 2012 that included still-outdated processors and no other seemingly obvious improvements like USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt.
Update 10:17 AM: Macworld provides a bit more detail on where the current Mac Pro fails to meet the new regulation.
