Original story

First, the new Mac Pro’s ship date was set for December. Then, it was pushed back to an unspecified date in February. Now, it looks like much of the world won’t be getting their shiny, cylindrical Apple desktop until sometime in March

The new March ship date reportedly applies to Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia, according to MacRumors. For now, it looks as if US-based customers won’t have to wait any extra to receive their Mac Pros, with Apple’s US page still indicating a “February” ship date for the high-end desktop.

 We can’t help but be reminded of the delay suffered by Apple and its iMac all-in-one desktop back in 2012. Apple CEO Tim Cook later expressed regret with respect to the decisions that led to the holdup with the 2012 iMac. Here’s what he said about the incident during a January 2013 conference call: “If we could run it over frankly, I would have announced the iMac after the turn of the year, because we felt our customers had to wait too long for that specific product.”

This new Mac Pro shipping delay will no doubt annoy consumers who were eagerly awaiting the mysterious-looking desktop’s initial late-December arrival. An exact date for March Mac Pro shipments has not been revealed.
