Apple "Apple may be taking some of the burden of assembling the new iMac off Chinese supply partners by performing parts of assembly in the U.S., as a number of newly-purchased standard units are showing an 'Assembled in USA' notation usually reserved for made-to-order machines." Cool. You'd think we'd have more information on this than the article contains, but alas.

"Assembled in USA" aka Still made in china, just modified in the US to what you ordered.

Most likely 100% true but still a step above what we usually have here in the U.S. to buy. The usual garbage is, "100% made in China, assembled in China." In other words: All work outsourced to China. f*** our own United States workers, eh?
