Anyone know when the new MacPro will be available. It's December, and that was the scheduled time...any rumors about the specific release date? Or delays?

Thanks

I'm not clear on why the question "when will (fill in device or software) be available" is asked.

No one knows with even the slightest degree of certainty until Apple announces it.

Could someone explain why the question is asked when all the answers, no matter how well intended, are meaningless.

I just wish people could read the existing threads, instead of feeling the need to create a new one in the hope that somehow this one will get the answer they are looking for.

That's in Europe .. Wouldn't the USA launch be sooner? Or are they doing a global launch?
All Macs come out at the same time across the world these days (or at least this is true for US and Europe and let's face it - everywhere else is the land of dragons and so forth)

i will sell you one now if you send me your bank details
Ok that sounds fair.

My bank is USAA and their phone number is 210-531-8722. Just call them and tell them you want to do a transfer from brand's account to pay for his new Mac Pro. Now that you have my bank details I am eagerly awaiting the delivery of my new Mac Pro.

You should see the new MAC Pro Minis shipping by the end of December and they will be the cheap version lower core count and smaller drive
I do not think This Mac will last more then a Year, until apple releases that it was a mistake, as the sales will be down
The real Mac Pro will be available by 2015, or all we will have left is hakintosh

Successful or not, I think the days of Macs with drive bays and PCIe slots are behind us.

That will be a shame
I hope its not
I have a blue ray drive and five 3 tb black drives in my
that will take allots of desk space if I would have to replace

For photo editing and some BR movies this will do me for next two years and hopefully by than Hakintoshes will be more reliable.
Having drive bays is a must for me as it allows me to keep the desk much cleaner

All that mess and only a single punctuation mark makes for confusing reading, although it is not as bad as a wall of text.

I simply can't accept that Apple would intentionally delay the mac pro until 9 days before xmas?
I don't think it was intentional. I've been arguing that there was/is an unexpected production/supply problem. Others have said the processors are just starting full-scale production and Apple was overly optimistic in planning a Dec release. In either case, I believe Apple was hoping for an earlier release and has been constrained to a later date by circumstances beyond their control.

Let's do some numbers for fun :)
Look at bolded numbers. All based on Apple store product card

Quad-Core and Dual GPU

3.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon E5 processor
Mean it will ship within 3 - 7 days from order

12GB 1866MHz DDR3 ECC memory
Mean it will be shipping from December 18 for 6 cores (18(6+6)). Here they mention December twice to make you be sure of that month.

Dual AMD FirePro D300 with 2GB GDDR5 VRAM each
It is 3+(2*5) = 13 it's day of December when they gonna start preorders

256GB PCIe-based flash storage1
2+5+6 = 13 another clue on preorders date

Coming in December.
(this is obvious)

6, 12, or 18 month
6 core version shipping on December 18.

I hope that will help you out find the date.
