If you live in the U.S. and are sad about the state of the Mac Pro, just imagine how it must feel for those living in Europe, where the computer will be discontinued next month -- but it may only be a temporary move.
9to5Mac is reporting that Apple Authorized Reseller and Certified Education center France Systemes is notifying customers that the upcoming March 1 deadline to purchase a Mac Pro in the European Union may only be temporary.
"However, we believe that the judgment of the Mac Pro is temporary, Apple informed us that a new Mac Pro will be released in spring 2013," a loosely-translated version of the company's newsletter text said. "We will be sure to submit these products since their introduction."
France Systemes has been in the Apple business for 17 years, so it would seem unlikely they'd make wild, unsubstantiated claims -- however, it seems hard to believe that anyone at Apple would confirm the existence of a new Mac Pro without an official announcement.
Regardless, Apple will stop selling the existing Mac Pro in Europe come March 1 due to regulatory changes, and given how long it's been since the computer has had a true refresh, a new model is likely to come down the pipeline sooner rather than later.
