Dude I said if I was offered the option to support my own county to buy goods made in my country I would pay more for that. It's my county. Yes it's self centric I want to support my country and economy more then China as I am not Chinese. This is normal you are just looking for reasons to hate Americans. There may be many but my desire to support my own economy in the country I live in is not one of them. Sorry your point is a complete fail and so is your biased hate.

No, that's because the names China and Mexico are single entities. USA stands for United States of America. So you'd say: Made in the United States of America. Not: Made in United States of America. The latter could refer to ANY United States of America, but the former refers specifically to THE United States of America, which is what the U.S is

Just looked at my mid 2011 iMac and it was assembled in the USA too! It was also a build to order.

Cool, I just checked my 2011 BTO iMac and it actually has assembled in Ireland etched into the aluminium.

Actually, the formal name for Mexico (perhaps not for much longer) is Estados Unidos Mexicanos. If you're wondering, I have noticed the phrase HECHO EN MEXICO (not HECHO EN EUM or HECHO EN EU) and that the abbreviation for "United States" (of America) in the Latino press is EE. UU.

Is it really racist to have an opinion based on real world trends?

It could also be the aluminium case, glass, and various internals like the cooling system and speakers. The fact that the new iMac is made with some new complicated manufacturing processes like the glass laminated to the screen and the chin being friction stir welded may also count as being a more substantial assembly than just screwing parts together.

Just like the good-old days.

I bet the next MacPros are made in the USA, if this is a purposeful trend.
