Apple used to be made in the USA, back when they were built like tanks, not like pretty expensive crap made in China as they are today. As somebody who has worked on them when they were built here and since they have been built in China by people who at times leap to their death due to working conditions I can speak to their "quality". If I have offended you because you love your overly expensive pretty aluminum hot running nearly impossible to work on (unless you bought the tools) iMac get over it.

Some of their products are made in the USA, such as the new Mac Pro (the cylindrical one). This had the effect of slowing down production and some of their engineers wanted to push manufacturing back to Asia.

As for China - most of the US factories simply cannot do the things that Apple wants to do. They are not only cheaper but they are far advanced in manufacturing.

Apple felt the pressure to move the Pro to the US, with the press they were getting they did so, with the money they currently have they will do this while they have to and quietly put it back when they feel its time and nobody will say anything. Of course US manufacturing can't do it anymore, Apple set the trend for Chinese in the 90's and most moved manufacturing to China, that's the whole point, it's cheaper in China but the Chinese people are fighting for higher wages and more freedom, the Communist leaders may be using some capitalist ideas but they are still building empty city after empty city and burning through money like it's in dumpsters, how long can that last?

The Chinese production run isn't going to last, their people are sick of how they've been treated, they want the same things they have been making but couldn't buy, how long do you think they'll keep making our expensive phones, tablets etc.. without being able to afford them? China is still a Communist country, they still treat their people like crap, they get paid crap they still prop up N. Korea and their economy can sustain this insane spending for how long do you think?
