Many Mac Pros In Stock
Update 3/27/14: Most Mac Pro models are now sold out or on back/pre-order status with the exception of the two models listed below and one other in our price guide.
While Apple's new Mac Pros remain backordered into April and relatively hard to come by in general, a few of the company's authorized resellers this week reported receiving stock of an assortment of configurations that are available immediately to readers with free shipping.
MacMall let us know they have taken receipt of their first shipment of following configurations (but expect to sell through them rather quickly). The Apple Authorized Reseller and AppleInsider sponsor also offers the added benefit of only charging sales tax on orders shipped to a handful of states (CA, CO, GA, IL, MN, NC, NY, TN and WI). With Mac Pros, these tax savings can really add up.

Meanwhile, availability of dozens of other Mac Pro configurations can be tracked daily in our Price Guides. Models listed with a price tag (such as $4,199) are either in stock or on immediate allocation, meaning they are shipping in 24-48 hours. Those listed as on order are currently backordered into April.
For example, Apple authorized reseller Adorama lists the availability of dozens of Mac Pro configurations as:
"This item is currently on allocation, Please place it on order and we will ship when it comes in. Please note we do not charge your card until we actually ship."
However, these units are shipping out the same business day in most cases. Order confirmation emails will confirm the delivery date.
