I bet the press (Namely the Daily Mail) will twist it round somehow.

I can see it now:

"Apple Makes 1000 Chinese Workers Redundant"

The Mac Pro makes a lot of sense. It's already often ordered in custom configurations, making it closer to its main market would make that easier. It's also the highest cost machine they sell, making the impact of labor costs much less of an issue.

That said, a consumer oriented line, like the iMac makes a lot of sense too. It's great PR for Apple, but the average person who would be swayed toward the product as a result isn't going to be in the market for a Mac Pro.

Eventually I can see them moving all Mac Production to the US and this just being a first step. They're all low volume products compared to iOS, and carry generous margins.

Many American consumers would prefer to buy US made products, there simply aren't any right now. It would help the Mac bite off a larger piece of the US PC market, especially with Windows being in a transition period at the moment.

Apple's love of flash memory could drive a new type of pro machine; more power supply and cooling for dual Xeon's and memory, plus a PCIe stack. TB and internal SSD slots replace harddrive trays.

Smaller,cooler, quieter and more expensive will be the end result.

No, it's because Apple lost to Nokia who gained an exclusive contract with the largest phone company of the world (yes, of the world!): "China Mobile". That's 700 mio customers having access now to Lumia 920T (and not iPhone).

You haven't heard the news, now haven't you?

Possible reason - federal sales

Some federal agencies require hardware to be manufactured in the US for security reasons (I don't know which specifically).

Cisco has a manufacturing (well, assembly) facility in the US just for this purpose; I think it is in Texas.

Assuming the Mac Pro lineup is not killed off, manufacturing the 2013+ Mac Pro in the U.S. would yield substantial savings on shipping weight and cost (for those Mac Pros sold in the U.S, that is).

I like it, but for those of you thinking Foxconn isn't involved anymore, think again, the parts inside are still Foxconn made.

Mac Mini or Mac Pro. THis sounds like good news. Let's hope that it is true and works out.

Pretty sure it's iMac... which is still small scale when compared to iPads or iPhones.

It's funny how China is planning on dumping Cisco because its made in America for "national security"- what goes around comes around? ;-). I just find it funny and had a chuckle.

Was iOS device production ever in the United States to begin with? I wasn't aware of it.

I would guess the Mac Pro as well. They couldn't make enough money on any other product. Plus the high price of the Mac Pro combined with technology that's usually out dated when people get them...lol. Those bastards are making a killing... Why not employ more Americans.... Help out the ones they're bending over!

Drop compared to Apple fortunes but at least 10 large companies could be seeded for $100m.

Most likely the iMac, not the Mac Pro.

No, no, no guys

Apple had to move their new Mac product to the US as Samsung has already beat them to it:

I'm shocked honestly.

Here we have a "job creator" actually creating jobs?

Can't believe it.
