    Hi,

    If I order a custom spec apple retina iMAC, where is it built? Are they pulled apart and spec'd up here in australia or do they come from the factory (pre-built) to spec.

    Thanks.

    They're specced at the factory itself.

    If you order from Europe, most custom ordered iMacs are assembled in Ireland. For Australia, I guess they would come directly from the factory in China.

    I live in Melbourne and my BTO retina iMac was assembled in the States.

    Are they built in the US? Or in China? Or both

    Hmm. Guess Aussie BTOs can come from either Uncle Sam or commie land.

    Are you sure about that? I ordered from Denmark and it was assembled in China.

    Well, you can replace "most" with "some." Mine was assembled in and shipped from Ireland.

    Probably makes no difference, but mine shipped from California. Pretty stoked to have it assembled in my own state.
