    Yeah, my Mac mini has just been shipped..FROM CHINA!!! Whats the deal?
    My DVI to video adapter came from pensylvania in 1 day, but now it is taking almost a week to get the mini from China. I was hoping Apple would not be one of those companies that has outsourced overseas. But I guess I was stupid for hoping.

    Just about everything Apple sells is now made in China.


    BUT

    It's designed in California by Apple. :p

    Just about everything that everyone makes is made in China and if they are smart designed elsewhere.

    Designers = Professionals = Decent pay = Live in LA, NY, London etc.

    Built by = Whoever's cheapest = As little as the vendor can get away with = China

    Aren't most things made in China or the far east?
