[Marcus Moore] "So the question is why do you think this shipping delay is being enforced by Apple? Is there proof the delay is being motivated by them?"

I have spoken to two sources, both of which have units ready to ship, but cannot ship them yet. When pressed, they told me why. That's pretty clear to me.

As we all know, no sane person would have a product in stock ready to ship and then not ship it. That's the whole reason for being in business. You have to have a pretty good reason not to try and recoup your (substantial) investment and up front costs. For many businesses, this would involve borrowing money and paying interest. So why would you wait one minute longer than necessary?

The only good reason, is that someone who you consider to be a valuable business partner (or customer) has enough influence that when they ask you (or tell you) not to, you feel compelled to comply.

FWIW, the newest date for release of these arrays is December 10th... perhaps that's the magic day for the MacPro to ship, which would make many of you happy...
