Mac Pro Shipping Estimates Begin Improving to 1-2 Weeks




Shipping estimates for the Mac Pro through Apple's online store continue to rapidly improve, with the company's European stores such as the UK now showing 1-2 weeks for new orders. Online stores for other regions are still listing estimates of 2-3 weeks, but they should be seeing a similar improvement shortly.

After months of shortages for the completely revamped Mac Pro following its December launch, shipping estimates have improved rapidly in recent weeks, although it is unclear how much is due to improved supplies as any kinks have been worked out of Apple's new U.S. production line and how much is due to a slowing of demand after the initial order surge.

(Thanks, Paul!)

They can move shipping times from 1 to 2 minutes, I am still unable to afford one.

I'd imagine there is less interest now as people are expecting a spec bump or price drop in the coming months.

I'm one of those people. I'm looking to;
Expansion chassis. (I mean one that actually complements the Mac Pro).
DDR4
HDMI2.0

You'll be waiting a while then. At least until January.

Not a real problem. I'm not doing any real work with it at the mo.

There's always a spec bump or price drop in the coming months. For every computer. Looks like intel won't have the next xeons until at least september and it's not like they're going to have TB3 by that point.

Took 5 weeks to get mine. The thing that I found more surprising was they shipped it at the 4 week mark on 5 day shipping instead of overnight. I wasn't able to choose shipping priority when I purchased it either, the Apple representative at the store told me Apple ships them however they want, and he doesn't know the reason behind it. I think they send it to the NSA to get it tagged : )

No I'm serious. USA manufacturing sucks. That's why American car companies outsource to Mexico.

I don't think that's what he meant by "your comment is a joke".
