Apple Computers: Made in the USA?

A "Computer Assembled in USA" sticker made its way onto an iMac purchased this weekend
Apple may be assembling certain hardware
in the United States
instead of China, according to a recent
The report referred to a reader, Aaron Gong, that purchased a new 21-inch iMac at an Apple Store in San Jose, California last weekend. When he opened the box, the label said "Computer Assembled in USA" rather than China, which is normally the case.
This is a bit of an odd case, though, since
was an in-stock, entry-level model that had no custom specifications at all. In the past, only "made-to-order" iMacs were assembled in the U.S.
This doesn't mean that Apple is moving all of its hardware -- or even just iMac -- manufacturing the U.S. Another 21-inch iMac buyer purchased his product at the Manhattan Apple Store last week and had an "Assembled in China" label on it.
It's not clear what's going on with Apple's assembly locations, but Gong's Saturday iMac purchase has certainly raised a few questions.
Apple's gadgets are mainly manufactured and assembled at its
in China, but these plants have had several issues this year ranging from poor working conditions to employee abuse in the way of
, crowded dorms, and low pay.

Dude. Get a girlfriend. seriously. All this anti-Apple rhetoric must not be good for anyone's health. Or better yet, perhaps go buy an actual Apple product. This will be good therapy for you.

You, Pirks, create new names to mock people, yet have the audacity to tell others to get a girlfriend.
And to sit here and claim it's not you, people aren't stupid. Everyone knows it's you. You are the ONLY one who mocks people by using names that resemble the person you are mocking.
And that DT continues to allow this, is pretty pathetic as well.
