Apple Starts Delivering Mac Pro, Orders from Europe Receive China Assembled Mac Pro

The new Mac Pro and Apple Pro XDR were available to order last week. As expected the deliveries have begun and users are posting pictures of their new Mac Pro. Interestingly, the Mac Pro’s are assembled in different plants for different regions.

Right after announcing Mac Pro, Apple said that they will move the assembly from Texas to China. It seems like the escalating trade war forced Apple to retain Mac Pro assembly in the U.S, however, they were successful in getting exempt for select Mac Pro parts. The biggest revelation is that Mac Pro is assembled in Texas for only orders placed from the United States, and Canada. A Mac Pro customer from France has revealed that his machine is assembled in China.

At this point in time, it seems like Apple is dispatching Mac Pro that was assembled in China for European customers. In other words, the company seems to have moved a part of its assembly from Texas to other countries.

The latest Mac Pro comes baked in with eight PCI-express slots. It is worth noting that PCI support will allow you to use existing PC hardware and add peripherals like sound cards and GPUs. The new Mac Pro starts at $5,999 and is aimed at advanced users wanting a powerful workstation. Speaking about the price, the top of the line Mac Pro is expected to cost upwards of $50,000.

The Mac Pro teardown preview by iFixit is already out and the full analysis should be published soon. Apple was found to be using the most affordable RAM and selling it for a huge premium as part of the upgrade kit. Did you order the new Mac Pro?
