May have to buy a Mac

This is good news. If anyone can start bringing high tech manufacturing back it is them. Hopefully this will start a trend. A great by-product of a big Apple manufacturing plant opening up domestically is the amount of other jobs it will create in the area, restaurants, housing, car dealers, retail, etc.

Probably not all "good will" by Apple, it has to make financial sense too even with their hefty profit margins. Might be possible that with all the transportation cost and climbing labor/material costs overseas that it is getting close to the break even point to manufacture domestically for them. Can keep way tighter control over the product without contracting it out too. Makes so much more sense to have engineering in Cali. closer to manufacturing. Not to mention the time advantage they can gain, cutting 3 weeks on the sea out of the equation is big.
Start saving my pennies for a iMac down the line. (lots of penny's, haha)

kind of ironic that apples commercial is what apple is today. Bunch of mindless sheep that use apple products worshipping steve jobs.

While us real puter people have a free market to use any part or software we choose in our computers
