The jury is very nearly in mes amis.
Well said. We're waiting with anticipation. The proof is in the pudding.

I see your point, but Apple is a brand associated with quality build and design.

As far as the automotive industry, look at Toyota, they were on top of the world and then wham, they had all kinds of issues with their vehicles which lead to a PR disaster.

I am excited about this news. Apple will start off small and as they figure things out, we'll see more and more products made here.

Apple will creater more and more jobs and hopefully it will be a win-win situation for everyone....then we'll hopefully see other companies follow suit.

My money is on it being the MacPro. Even if not a hugely profitable section of the pie, I think it's presence as a goodwill gesture to pro users outweighs the costs.

You mean Detroit big 3 UAW shops have a reputation for bad quality. No one complains about American made Hondas, Toyotas, Subarus etc etc

This change in major manufacturing is something that gets planned for years.

With the "Made in USA" markings on new iMacs, it's kinda hard to keep the development completely secret any more.
A "few days" ? lol check the price again

Less than two weeks still counts as a few days, considering the context of years of planning for major strategic manufacturing changes.
