    It use to be that tariffs on durable goods from Germany were very expensive, but people didn't mind paying the price for high quality goods. I predict people wouldn't want to pay a premium for Chinese garbage though. ;)

    As far as Macs go, we're already paying a premium price even though they're still made in China. :confused:

    You have to admit that Macs are well-built, though. I don't mind paying a premium for them. :)

    My Mac is slightly upscale; it's made in Taiwan. ;)
