2013 Mac Pro Ship Times Improve Incrementally
In the ongoing 2013 Mac Pro constrained allocation drama, Apple has shaved a week or two from its estimated delivery times for new orders. That’s an improvement over Apple’s advertised five to six weeks from earlier in the month.
“In a change to the Online Apple Store on Thursday, Apple is now quoting Mac Pro shipping availability at three to five weeks for all configurations, suggesting supply of the flagship Mac is finally catching up to demand,” writes AppleInsider.
Well, catching up just a teeny little bit. Nevertheless, the Apple has been making steady if slow progress.
However, Apple seems to be favoring some third-party resellers. For example, MacMall lists 24-hour availability for a number of 2013 Mac Pro configurations, including Apple’s baseline $2,999 model.
Folks wanting a traditional cheese grater Apple tower can get a refurbished Mac Pro.
