Good thing it’s not up to you “buy the argument” because your analysis is devoid of any reasoning and is based on incorrect facts. Based on your flawed reasoning everything should be made in the US since it “can be done,” without regard for whether it is profitable.Sorry, they chose to move the production to China, they had already been assembling it in the U.S. previously, which shows that it CAN be done.
Now there could be an argument that the parts can only be purchased from China and thus should be exempt from import tariffs, but the fully assembled machines should absolutely be subject to the import tariffs.
As for the proprietary, Apple designed component, well it is proprietary and designed by Apple, which means they could literally take it anywhere that manufactures electronics (say Samsung in Korea even) and have them manufacture it, sorry, I don't buy into that argument, Apple owns the design, so they can do what they want, but they choose to get it from China, so yes, they should be subject to the tariffs as well.
You are wrong. It cannot be done in the US. There is not enough skilled labor, and the fact that Apple built the low volume trash can Mac here doesn’t change that fundamental and correct fact that you conveniently ignore.
And even if it could be done, Apple is a business so obviously profit matters. You can’t seriously think that a Mac Pro could be manufactured in the US for the same price as in China.
