    Apple has begun shipping custom configured Mac Pro units to customers according to MacRumors Forum members, some two weeks after stock configurations began arriving just before Christmas.

    According to several posters on the MacRumors forums, a number of custom configured models have seen their order status change to "Preparing for Shipping", which typically happens one day before an actual shipment. A couple have even seen their machines actually ship, with some expected to arrive as soon as today.

    Stock configurations ordered early on launch day have been shipping more consistently, while custom orders have seen longer delays.

    Separately, Electronista reported earlier this week that Apple may not have sufficient Mac Pro units to stock its Apple Stores until March or April. Currently, customers are being advised to order units online and they will ship when available -- estimated ship times for the Mac Pro are currently targeted to February.
    Mac Pro models still show an "available to ship" estimate of February on the U.S. Apple Online Store, while Mac Pro units appear to be out-of-stock at all Apple Retail Stores.

    Update: One customer whose build-to-order Mac Pro shipped on December 31 has received the order today.

    Just received the same email.

    "Mac Pro delivery update for order

    ...
    Your Mac Pro is scheduled to ship in January. When it does ship, we’ll email you with a more specific delivery date.
    ...
    "

    ...already knew that. But maybe the gears are moving. 6 core, D700, 1tb, 32gb.

    I'm hoping the same. Order was placed around 3:30am est, wonder if that even matters or if its something to do with the config (or both).

    All this means is I'll be checking the status page more often…

    If it ships FedEx I'll probably hang the form on the door incase I don't hear the bell.

    If it comes UPS I'll have to stand at the door or the guy is likely to stop at the bottom of the steps and throw it.

    Yep same here. 8 core/d700/512/32. Ordered at 7 am eastern on dec 19.

    I think it means they are gearing up and managing expectations.

    Me too. I'm worried as I'm leaving town Wednesday evening for a week and a half. I don't want it arriving while I'm gone and getting sent back and I don't know how long FedEx/UPS/Whoever will hold it. And if it gets returned to Apple, and I have to wait for a refund before re-ordering, it's going to be another month waiting.

    Ditto on the "thanks for your patience" email. I, too, am choosing to take that as a sign things are moving along, despite it having no real information to offer.

    Mine's a CTO hex/32/512/D500, ordered it as soon as the site went live.

    At least you guys and the Mac Pro itself do have Apple's awareness. Yes I know, this comment won't help :D

    Mine didn't ship yet... do you think I need to order one before they ship it to me or will Apple randomly send one to me?

    Hopefully it means Apple is moving along with production. At least they're not saying "February."

    Some emails are not worth reading...

    Got the same "Dear Blah blah blah..."

    Ordered 6 cores, 32 Gb, 512 Bg, D700 on the day the orders were allowed at 2:30 AM CST

    Says "Ship in January"... does not say "Delivers in January..." Well, I am preparing the phase out of my current unit and the phase in of the new baby... Worth the effort...
