    Hello there, as many of us here are waiting desperately for a new Mac Pro, I've been browsing around Apple's website and I found something very odd, and it leads me to believe that we might get new Mac Pros next week.
    Here's a few screen shots of their pick to order widget thing on their website:

    What gives?
    :apple:



    // My local Apple Store (Apple Store Del Monte R305) pick up delivery dates have slipped. It is now showing May 1st, which is a Tuesday. We'll see.

    // shipping dates decrease from 5-6 business days to 2-4 business days. Same thing applies to European stores. :(
    I'm getting really tired of waiting!

    // Apple Store, Spain has slipped in shipping dates. All but the 12 Core are shipping within 4 days. I believe this also applies to all of the other European stores.


    // 5/7/12
    Apple Store Del Monte, R305 now has Mac Pros in stock. Agh! Apple is killing me right now! This is becoming really frustrating.

    Apple Store, Spain dates slip. Mac Pros now ship within 1-3 business days. :(

    Just checked in my area (minneapolis, MN) the only store that had the base mac pro in stock was the Mall of America. Every other store shows availability of April 27. Is this normal? or is something up??? **Please be an update!** :eek:

    Adobe CS6 was just announced for an event tomorrow and there are a few other notable tech updates scheduled this week. Maybe somethings up? Who knows.... Come on Apple throw me a bone!!!

    *** just checked the rest of the MP line and nothing is available before the 27th with one model out until the 3rd***

    The flip side being that if every store in existence gets a huge new restock of current mac pros within the week we know we are pretty much screwed. :p

    Because that would obviously mean no new models for some time...

    You're right. If we don't see an announcement this Tuesday we're screwed. Either Tuesday or Wednesday.

    Interesting, well, we just have to wait to find out what's going to happen. I've been waiting for a while now. My MacBook Pro is slow :mad:, specially when plugged in to my 27" Cinema Display.

    In the exact situation. Plus I have been holding out for CS6 so I wouldn't mind killing two birds with one stone! CS4 on my 08 MBP is starting to be a bit of a pain.

    That's interesting. If there's an announcement Tuesday they must have them in warehouses close to their stores. I hope to see new Mac Pros, soon!
    :)
    Or they have them in stores but are not allowed to open the packages.

    With the Apple store showing "in StocK" for the Mac Pro's?

    I don't think so.

    Apple always sunsets machines before they are discontinued. To sunset, you have to have the machine in stock.

    No stock implies no sunset implies no discontinuation.

    They also wouldn't promise to have more machines later if they were going to discontinue.

    The machines are in stock as I said before. At least in the Apple store.

    Except people who have ordered from the Apple Store have been encountering delays, despite the online store saying "in stock."

    It also, again, wouldn't make sense for the physical Apple Stores to promise new stock in a week if the machines are being discontinued.

    Really only a few isolated people have experienced "ordered" delays for whatever reason.

    This is all desperation thinking. Don't get your hopes up too high. There is as good a chance of seeing late summer, tomorrow or never as far as I can tell. There really is nothing solid to go on unlike all the flood of leaks about virtually all the other Apple product lines. Even the home button on the new iphone leaked today.

    Still available for order on the UK site...I'm now wondering why my sales guy told me to wait...I'm going to be really mad if the refresh comes and I miss out on a great sale with my iMac....We shall see.

    This doesn't make any sense. Supply in the channel always begins to run dry before a refresh.

    Doesn't mean it's happening here, but yeah, if all the stores get fresh restocks of all the Mac Pro models without an update, of course it means we aren't going to get a refresh a few weeks after that. Perhaps months, but not anytime soon.

    So yes, what I said was correct.

    Huh? My point was if they were going to discontinue, there wouldn't be stock shortages. Apple always keeps stock for two months past a discontinuation notice, even with the PowerPCs.

    What flood of leaks? I haven't seen anything on the iMac, Mac Mini, or Macbook Air, and all are up for refreshes. The Macbook Pro rumors have been guesses, at best. No solid leaks there.

    Edit:
    For comparison, see the exact same freakout here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=14764069

    Should we read into that that the iMacs are being discontinued?

    I just checked near me in LA, and about half of the stores had a base Quad in stock.

    The rest said April 26 or 27. If I choose a 12 core, nobody had it and it was May 3. Looks like that is shipping time for them to get it shipped there.

    Perhaps Mac Pro sales are so weak they just aren't going to stock them?

    If anyone wants to check their local store, you have to put one in your cart and then choose "Pick Up". It is best to try with base setup since 12 Core a bit more "exotic".

    Stores that don't carry the Mac Pro exist, and they show up as "Not Available For Pickup." Seems different.

    I just went to the online apple store and tried to buy the base quad core and after adding it to my cart i have no option to pick up in any store. And the expected delivery date is April 27th.

    Can someone else here try to do the same at the online store ? I think they removed the pick up at a local store option.

    [edit] nevermind I was using the business store

    That's about right for delivery I'd say...Just wonder why I was told to wait before I pull the trigger....I hope the guy who wanted my iMac is still around. He offered me pretty much what I paid for it...It's not a year old, is a custom top spec. And has 16GB of RAM....I'm happy with it, but feel that the Pro would better suit my long term needs....Just wish they'd hurry up and do something.
