The email also mentions the Pro Display XDR, sold separately, will also be available to order. The wording and use of ‘order’ imply that customers who purchase a Mac Pro will still be in with a shipping wait.
We don’t know if the units will ship in time for Christmas, though the Mac Pro would be one hell of a generous holiday gift starting at $5,999. The Pro Display XDR starts at $4,999. Add to that the inevitable custom versions people will order, assembly will likely take a while.
The units are being assembled in Austin, Texas, at the factory the previous Mac Pro was also assembled. Donald Trump recently wrongly implied he had had a hand in encouraging Apple to open the plant. It has in fact been in operation for Mac Pro activity since 2012.
