Perhaps they know they can't get the new Mac Pro ready in a reasonable time after this bullshit "directive" goes into effect, or (MUCH more likely), the EU rules threw their development cycle into a tizzy, and now they have to REDESIGN their almost-ready-but-now-not-so-much Mac Pro. Ever think of that???
By redesign you mean "put a grille over the fan"? My £13 PC PSU fan has a grille over it that you can't get your fingers through. Its hardly a difficult thing to achieve.
