My order didn't go in until the 26th. Has anyone who ordered seen a change in their order from "Processing" to "Preparing for Shipment"? If so, what date did your order go in?

I ordered on December 19th and my order status is unchanged: "shipping in February"... My patience is so thoroughly tested now by the time it's February I consider myself a Buddhist monk!

That and my current iMac is still alive and that's saying a lot about my ability to channel my frustration in less damaging ways :-D

I certainly hope you get yours in February but there is no way I will get mine that was ordered 28. December. If I am optimistic I will get mine in the end of March but I would rather guess sometimes this summer.

What does your order status "say"? If that is still february I would expect it to be february. That the shipping dates online have shifted to march is to be expected, all this time people are still ordering them online. At a certain number of orders shipping dates will shift to following months.

I ordered mine from the Apple reseller in Iceland and they have not heard a word yet from Apple. We have no Apple Store in Iceland. So I am very pessimistic. Island with 300.000 inhabitants are not a priority I would guess.

The almost unthinkable has happened. My Apple reseller contacted me yesterday and told me that my Mac Pro will arrive next week. The first one ever to be delivered to Iceland. So my waiting is over. And of course I am very exited. Thanks Apple.

That's great to hear. From what my Apple rep has been telling me, he hasn't seen ANY of his orders fulfilled, regardless of how early they got them in.

To my mind, I think the logical holdup remains good supply of one of the components. CPUs or GPUs. When Apple receives them- they can start shipping as fast as they can get them out the door.

I am surprised that you have not got yours yet. Iceland is actually number two after USA in buying Apple products ( Per capita) B)

If you want one in reasonable time, the Pro Apple dealers in Los Angeles generally have stock.

4 core stock, 6-core stock, 8 core, 12 core, all manner of BTO options, between all the pro dealers there's a pretty good selection. I managed to get really close to the BTO choices I really wanted (I had to settle for a 1TB SSD rather than 256 or 512. So difficult).

It might be safe to say that the shortage in other parts of the county is due to Apple getting units to the retailers in Los Angeles that sell to the pros. I'd make some calls, worked for me.

Have you received yours yet?

My shipping notice still says February- when that changes I'll be concerned.

It seems to me it was mid-January when the ship date on the store slipped to March. Here we are mid-Febaruary and now ship dates are April for new orders.

So I don't think they're falling further behind, they're just not catching up.

What's the projected date for the Intel Xeon processor upgrade this year? If I didn't really need this machine for a job this summer, I'd start to wonder about waiting for the next revision.

Mine has left United States, 7 days ago. So it is almost in my hands, according to my Apple reseller. I have been using my Mac Pro since 2006. Now I am stuck in Lion and FCP 10.0.9. So I do not want to wait any longer.
