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?
