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.

No, it wouldn't bring in any where near as much as making the rich pay at even the same percentage as everyone else. Tarifs are just a tiny drop in the bucket compared to the huge cash cow that income taxes are.
You are right about the Toyota scam though, they did do that. Although they have changed and a lot of their cars are actually assembled in the USA and quite a few parts are made there too. That's why I drive a Mazda.

The hell are you talking about? Personal income taxes for those legally living in the US is much higher as you go up the income bracket. top 10% pay 70% of all taxes, and the top 50% pay nearly all taxes according to the IRS at 97.75%.
