Computer still in short supply
Apple has been delaying shipments of some of the earliest Mac Pro orders into March, anecdotes reveal. Shortly after the company opened up online orders in late December, shipping estimates quickly extended into February. Now, though, even people who ordered in early January are receiving word that they shouldn't expect delivery until next week at the earliest; at least some customers are being told to wait another five to seven business days. One buyer notes that he had received emails at the beginning and middle of February reassuring him that his Pro would arrive by the end of the month.
The 2013 Mac Pro has always been in tight supply. Even now, new US orders of the Pro are only due to ship in April. Compounding factors may include the complexity of the computer, the small target audience, and the system being the only Mac manufactured in the United States.
