It’s almost as if the new 2013 Apple Mac Pro has ceased to exist before existing; radio silence. I suppose we’re in uncharted territory: normally Apple does not pre-announce products at all, but since that rule was broken it seems reasonable to have some kind of update at least as a professional courtesy for those considering new versus old. After all, some customers have real work to do, and want more than a candy colored iPhone to play with.
The sneak peak at the 2013 Apple Mac Pro is still there on the Apple site as “coming later this year”. Surely as we approach October Apple could be a little more specific: does that mean Dec 31st?
It’s a guess, but my suspicion is that the new trashcan look won’t actually be delivered to customers until January 2014. The holdup might be the Thunderbolt 2 chipset.
