Mac Pro Desktop: No More Apple Mac Pro Desktop Sales in Europe

A Leading Company Cheaper Than 90% Of Blue Chips... And It Recently Bounced 12%Mac Pro Desktop: If you don’t live in Europe you may not be aware that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has plans to halt sales of its Mac Pro desktop in the region on March 1, 2013. Although this computer may not be popular among those in other parts of the world, it was always a favorite among many living in Europe.

It was only a few weeks back when Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) announced it would stop selling the well respected and time tested Mac Pro desktop.

Here is some information from AppleInsider as to why sales are being stopped:

“In late January, Apple announced that it would be halting sales of the venerable Mac Pro on March 1 due to incompatibility with Amendment 1 of Regulation IEC 60950-1. According to Apple, the aging desktop platform is incompatible with the revised standard’s requirement for protected fan blades.”

At this point, you may be wondering what kind of effect this is going to have on Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) revenue in the region. While the desktop was popular among audio and visual professionals, it was not something that the everyday consumer would have purchased. For this reason, the inability to sell the Mac Pro moving forward is not expected to have too much of an impact on the company’s bottom line.

The same AppleInsider article added the following:

“While the tower computer has not seen a major design change for years, Apple revealed in June 2012 that an updated Mac Pro is coming sometime in 2013, though the machine’s specs and release date have yet to be nailed down.”

Even though the Mac Pro desktop will no longer be sold in Europe within a couple of weeks, it appears that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is going to release an updated unit sometime this year.
