Apple Mac Pro delays surface as shipping times slip to February

Apple Mac Pro delays are on the cards as shipping times for the high-end desktop slip to February just one day after orders started being taken.

With Apple having yesterday made the new Mac Pro models available for order for the first time, the premium computer was originally listed alongside January as an expected delivery window.

Now, however, less than 24 hours after the device hit the company’s online retail store, delivery times have already been extended by one month.

In what has been a far from vintage year for the Cupertino-based company, the new Mac Pro delays are just the latest supply issues to hit the tech giant. Earlier in the year the iPhone 5S was in short supply at launch while the iPad mini 2 with Retina display is still being affected by low stock levels.

Marking a complete refresh over past Mac Pro models, the new premium desktop line has adopted a cylindrical aluminium body just 9.9-inches tall that take up just an eighth of the overall space of its predecessor.

The Mac Pro is available to order in a variety of configurations, with the base model setting wannabe owners back a lofty £2,499.

For this considerable fee, owners will see their device powered by a 3.7GHz quad-core Intel Xeon E5 processor and dual AMD FirePro D300 GPus, each with 2GB of VRAM. On top of this, the entry-level Mac Pro packs 12GB of inclusive memory and a 256GB flash storage system.
