    Yesterday received my top end 21.5" with fusion iMac, I live in UK

    I had read about the "assembled in USA", well I've just checked mine and it says "Assembled in Ireland"

    I'm presuming as mine has a fusion, it may have been added there or something?

    o_O ahhhh Irish iMacs :p

    Interesting, guess Apple are expanding not just in the US. Could well be assembling all across the globe.

    Mine says Assembled in Ireland as well.

    Came from Ireland.

    Funny, it went from Cork, to Shannon, to Dublin...to some place in Germany (Forgot the name now), and finally to Stansted in the UK.

    Cork is Apple's european headquarters with nearly 3000 employees , but I wasn't aware of any assembly work.

    Indeed. Genuine Irish machine would be an iMc. :)

    (In Northern Ireland, waiting on a BTO 27". Curious to see where it gets assembled now...)

    Dell used to build high quality machines in Ireland until they shipped it to Turkey, China etc. I will be pleased to receive a built in Ireland 27" BTO knowing that it has been put together correctly.

    I saw a picture somewhere that had an original Macintosh from 1984 made in Ireland so this is nothing new.

    Just to resurrect this ancient thread, I am Irish and collect lots of Macs.

    The Cork plant has been here since 1980 and opened by Jobs himself. Of the many apple products I own, most of which are listed in my signature, my Macintosh Classic II, Power Macintosh 8600, iMac G3 Lime (I think!), Power Mac G4 Quicksilver and Power Mac G5 Quad were all built in Ireland.

    Nice as a collector to know most of what I own was built in my home country. My Apple II and Mac 512k are both from the California plant. While not Ireland, it's still the original Apple factory.
