Apple’s CEO TIM Cook recently revealed that Apple will make one of their Mac line of computers in the USA starting next year, although he did not give any specific details on which Mac would be made in the US.
Now according to a recent report by Fortune, Apple is expected to start making their Mac Pro computer in the USA from next year, of course this has yet to be confirmed by Apple.
–A $100 million factory, Dan Luria, a labor economist at Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center told Bloomberg, employs about 200 people and produces about 1 million units per year
-Last year, Apple sold 18 million Macs, including 13.5 million MacBooks and 4.6 million desktops (iMacs, minis and Mac Pros). Only the Mac Pro and mini sell fewer than 1 million per year, and the Mac Pro is considerably heavier and more expensive to ship
-Apple, through a spokesperson and through Tim Cook himself, has already indicated that it will be producing a new Mac Pro in 2013
-Any extra labor costs associated with manufacturing in the U.S. can be more easily absorbed by a $2,500-$3,800 Mac Pro than by a MacBook or an iMac that sell for $1,000 to $1,300.
-Mac Pros are easier to build and customize than any other Apple product
As soon as we get some more information on which Apple computer they intend to make in the USA, we will let you guys know.
