I read somewhere that some iMacs are already showing the imprint "Assembled in the USA". I wonder if my partner's new 21'' iMac will?
I'm buying him one as soon as the local Apple store has them again, currently sold out. I don't want to buy online for home delivery this time. It'll be one of his (early) Christmas presents.
He's been running Windows on his Boot Camp-partitioned MacBook Pro, but his Outlook has gotten way buggy, along with other Windows crap it has. Plus the MacBook is 4 years old and starting to show its age.
He doesn't work in an office anymore where Windows was used, so I finally persuaded him to start using the Mac OS, like I do. We've now got a pair of iPads, so the need for a notebook when traveling doesn't exist. But he does like a larger screen with his eyesight, hence my choice of the new super-thin iMac, despite the declining popularity of desktops.
I'll put it on iCloud, and we'll finally be fully integrated: 2 iPhones, 2 iPads, and 2 iMacs, all sharing the same contact & calendar info, and anything else we want. No more of his asking me: "Does your calendar show us doing anything tonight?" or "Do you have a phone number for John Doe?" My calendar will be his calendar, his contact list my contact list, across all our devices, automatically, every minute of the day, from everywhere, no need for a syncing operation.
I'll post here if I see his new iMac has a USA on it.
