Tim Cook tells NBC Apple will be building Macs in the U.S.

Quote:
Tim Cook drops a bombshell in his interview with Brian Williams scheduled to air Thursday evening: Apple (AAPL) next year will begin manufacturing one of its existing Mac lines exclusively in the U.S.

The news came in a NBC release posted early Thursday morning. "We've been working for years on doing more and more in the United States," Cook tells Williams in a Rock Center broadcast scheduled for 10 p.m. Eastern. The NBC video.

Apple shipped the vast majority of its manufacturing to China shortly after Cook joined Apple from Compaq. He didn't specify which line of Macs would be made in the U.S., but reports last week that some of the new 21-inch iMacs come with "Assembled in the USA" labels on them is strongly suggestive. (Note, however, that soldering in a few parts in an iMac is not the same as building an entirely new manufacturing plant.)

That's great news, I wish that many other US companies will follow

Assembled in the USA does not equal Made in the USA. There is a large difference.

I agree but it is a start. Do you know that some military components are made overseas? That's unbelievable!

Interestingly HP made a dig at Apple in regards to this, telling them that they were late to the party and that many of HPs products are assembled in the US already.

I think it doesn't matter whether or not it was assembled in the US or in other countries as much as it exhibits the things that the buyers or users expect it doesn't matter where it was assembled.
