    CTO units come out of California.

    I believe the stock models are made in China, but I could be wrong.

    Powermacs are assembled in Cork, Ireland. Not sure about BTO's (Built to order)

    If the serial number starts with CK that means Cork. I'm not sure what the other serial number prefixes are.

    There's an article that decodes several of the factory prefixes here. It'll also tell you other interesting stuff about your Mac (well, if you find manufacturing dates interesting, that is :p).
