Apple’s New Mac Pro to Be Assembled in Texas

Apple Newsroom, emphasis added:

The new Mac Pro will include components designed, developed and manufactured by more than a dozen American companies for distribution to US customers. Manufacturers and suppliers across Arizona, Maine, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Vermont, including Intersil and ON Semiconductor, are providing advanced technology. The US manufacturing of Mac Pro is made possible following a federal product exclusion Apple is receiving for certain necessary components. The value of American-made components in the new Mac Pro is 2.5 times greater than in Apple’s previous generation Mac Pro.

Tim Cook, quoted in the post: “We thank the administration for their support enabling this opportunity.”

I suppose “the administration” is better than “Dear Leader”.
