Apple pushes back release date for 'dustbin chic' Mac Pro

Fanbois will have to wait until April

Apple Mac Pro

It has been described as Darth Vader's dustbin, but that hasn't stopped fanbois from salivating over the new Mac Pro.

But they will have to keep drooling a little while longer after Apple pushed back the release date of their new high-end desktop to April.
