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" is the new way to say: "we got the parts from China, they came in huge containers, and we're only assembling it here".
So, basically, it's not "made in USA". Only assembled. It makes no difference, maybe beside local employment rate going a little up.
Bogus news.
