Apple`s new iMac: Assembled in the USA

Well this is good news for America, it looks like some of the iMacs are not only designed in California but some owners are reporting that the FCC logo states they are assembled in California too.
techcrunch reports:

"Your next Mac could be assembled in America. Apple is assembling at least some of the new, ultra-thin iMacs in the U.S. The backside stamp containing the serial code and FCC logo generally says “Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China.” But several owners of the new model quickly discovered their machines were made in the good ol’ US of A.

Apple has long made its products in the U.S. Its Elk Grove, Calif., complex opened in 1992 and retrofitted from a distribution center into a manufacturing plant in 1995. During the iMac’s heyday, it employed more than 1,500 people and pumped out computers seven days a week. The plant made its last computer in 2004 when then SVP of Worldwide Operations, Tim Cook, consolidated Apple’s manufacturing in what would be a successful move to maximize efficiency and margins."

its a token measure, but it would be nice if Apple set an example and brought the assembly of the entire line home
