For almost a year, the Cupertino, Calif.-based technology giant didn't have the fully-fledged borderline supercomputer on the market in the European Union after falling foul of an overnight regulation change.
According to reports in 2013, Apple was forced to remove the older desktop box-like Mac Pro from sale after safety regulation IEC 60950-1 [PDF] amendment resulted in the computer falling out of compliance. The regulation related to unprotected spinning fans designed to cool the computer.
Instead of fixing the "problem," Apple pulled the computer from sale and waited until its then-unannounced successor would be announced later in 2013.
Now thanks to a thorough overhaul of the new Mac Pro's design — a fraction of its predecessor's size and weight — the computer is back on sale in the 28 member state bloc.
Apple's online store now pegs the up-to-£3,299 desktop ($5,400) for a February delivery date.
