Mac Pro Available Starting Tomorrow

I’ve noticed a little pattern recently:

  1. Apple uncharacteristically announces a product well ahead of when it will be available to consumers.
  2. They give a one-month window of availability. For the Retina iPad Mini, it was “November”; for the Mac Pro, it was “December”.
  3. About halfway through that month, chatter on Twitter and rumour blogs turns to talk of delays, for various reasons.
  4. A weekend passes.
  5. An announcement is made that the product will be available that day or the following day.

So, perhaps the lesson here is to be patient.
