Apple Mac Pro went on sale yesterday and despite the enormous $2,999 price tag for the base model, it seems the machine is facing supply constraints as the shipping time slips to February 2014 hours after it went on sale. Currently, both Mac Pro models shows a shipment date of February.
If you already placed your order, good for you, otherwise, you might want to wait for a few months before you can get your hands on this monstrous machine.
It appears Apple didn’t have enough Mac Pros at launch to meet the demand, as they’ve pushed the timeframe back from some time. Reports mention that Intel’s chips that are used in the machine are in short supply and could be one of the reasons for the shortage. On the other hand, Apple also moved the manufacturing facility for Mac Pro to the US, and with the all new design and improved technology could be the other reasons why the Cupertino giant is facing supply constraints.
If you want to purchase the all-new Apple Mac Pro, you may want to call your nearest Apple store or a reseller and check if they have any available units, before placing an order online. If you’re lucky enough, you may find one, otherwise just wait for February.
