Shipping Estimates for Apple's New Mac Pro Continue to Improve, Now 1-2 Weeks
Just last week, shipping estimates for Apple's newly-released Mac Pro improved to just 2-3 weeks
. Since its release, the powerhouse machine has been quite hard to get your hands on due to the demand for it out-weighing the supply. Fortunately, the shipping estimates for the machine have been improving, showing that Apple is finally starting to find a happy median between supply and demand.
After last week's improvement, the U.K.
and some other international Apple Store Web sites are now quoting 1-2 week shipping estimates for Apple's new Mac Pro, as MacRumors
points out. It is expected that the U.S. Apple Store Web site will show the same shipping estimate in coming days.
There are two models of the Mac Pro available on Apple's Web site; the low-end Mac Pro comes with a quad-core 3.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon E5 processor, 12GB of 1866MHz DDR3 memory, dual AMD FirePro D300 video cards, and 256GB PCIe-based flash storage for the price tag of $2999. The higher-end Mac Pro comes with a 6-core 3.5GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon E5 processor, 16GB of 1866MHz DDR3 memory, dual AMD FirePro D500 video cards, and 256GB PCIe-based flash storage for the price tag of $3999. Further custom configurations will increase the prices.
