Some New iMacs are Assembled in the US

US sssembly is usually reserved for Apple’s made-to-order machines. But already a handful of standard 21.5-inch iMacs have been spotted labelled as American born-n-bred. In fact, Fortune suggests that these 21.5-inch iMacs are some of the first known examples of an Apple computer being assembled in the US, custom builds aside.

While the FTC dictates what’s meant by “Assembled in USA”, it’s not entirely clear how much assembly of these iMacs was performed in the US. Nor is it clear—to briefly play devils’s advocate—whether the result is a superior product. Would you prefer your Mac was made in the US? [Apple Insider]
