Any updates on the "made in USA" mac?

As far as I can tell, it's been crickets since media made the big brouhaha back in December. Have I missed anything?

Didn't it come out that it was really the ATV that was going to be made here, not the widely assumed new Mac Pro?

Nobody seems to have caught this, but at the State of the Union message Pres Obama mentioned that Apple was going to make "Macs" in the US again. The camera shifted to Cook in the audience and he looked very, very uncomfortable that people were now expecting that!

Actually I though the Pres did it on purpose to put some pressure on him.

Not that I have heard. Rumors are there are already iMacs shipped with "assembled in USA" (not all iMacs but some). And Tim further stated that he didn't just want to stop at assembly here in the US, but didn't elaborate. He also just said "2013" which in business speak usually means Nov-Dec 2013 at best....

At the price point they should have always been made here.
