Apple Mac Pro demand results in April ship date

The beautiful and only recently available Mac Pro has seen strong consumer demand since its unveiling and launch, something that has prompted Apple to push back the estimated shipping date until April. The change took place today, first for overseas markets, then a short while later for those in the United States and Canada.

Word of the change first surfaced from the French website MacGeneration; April shipping dates were first seen in France, Germany, the United Kingdom, China, Japan, and elsewhere before hitting North America. Some who have already gotten their hands on the machine are taking advantage of the situation and selling the models for premium prices.

This isn’t the first time the new Mac Pro has had its shipping date bumped; early demand quickly saw the date get moved to February after launch. The tower is being assembled in an Apple plant in Austin, Texas, giving it the built-in-the-USA bragging rights.

We got our hands on the new Mac Pro back in December, giving it an extensive review, as well as some time on the camera, which you can check out in the video above. If you find the rounded design appealing, you’re not the only one: it has inspired some thrifty copycats, with one industrious individual recently modding a PC to resemble it.
