Seth Weintraub, 9to5Mac:
From iFixit’s ritual iMac dismemberment yesterday we learn that the particular 21.5-inch iMac they bought says it was “Assembled in USA”. The moniker isn’t new – we’ve seen it since at least a few iMac models back on the packaging. But as far as we can tell, “Assembled in USA” wasn’t etched in the actual machines’ aluminum leading people to believe that the iMacs that were shipped were “refurbished in the USA”. However, this forum shows that some were actually assembled and sold new with the “Assembled in USA” label.
Great catch by 9to5Mac. The image in question can be seen here.
It comes as no surprise to me that Apple is back to building things in the United States. They want to double down on secrecy, and once they send designs to China for manufacturing, they have no control over them.
I am tickled pink by this news. I'm tempted to go buy a new iMac just to voice my approval.
