2012 MacBook Pro orders hurt labor force

Earlier this week we informed you that consumers were mostly looking forward to seeing the new Ivy Bridge processors in Apple’s upcoming 2012 MacBook Pro refresh, ahead of any other rumored features.

Now though, we’re hearing that Apple are running into problems over in China, as the demand for the new models are apparently so high, that it is starting to create labor problems for component makers in the Far East.

In usual fashion, Apple has not given the slightest hint that a new MacBook Pro is incoming, instead letting the speculation build up anticipation on its own – which is obviously has done to great extent. We spoke earlier this week about some of the amazing features that the new models may have, so it isn’t too surprising that Apple are having demand problems which have led to labor issues in China.

Apple should be well used to it anyway, so hopefully it doesn’t deter the company from sticking to their rumored Summer release for the new models. All the talk at the moment seems to be on new MacBook Pros, as we haven’t really heard too many details about a MacBook Air refresh, which is a bit strange just weeks away from the start of WWDC in San Francisco.

How hard can it actually be though to hire more workers in China, to get back on track with Apple’s intended release? It will be a major blow if Apple are forced to delay their new MacBook Pro, simply because Apple’s component suppliers couldn’t find the staff to get the job done.

What are your thoughts this apparent labor shortage in China? Are you confident that Apple will get the problem sorted so that it doesn’t affect the release of your next prized asset?
