    That's because the price tag is $20,000. If the price was $400 it would be made in China.

    The Mac Pro which is really expensive is manufactured in Texas.

    The Surface Hub has to be manufacturer it in the US because of the logistics of shipping such a massive device.

    Wait another 5 years and those things will be mass-produced and totally replace smart TV's...not to mention they'll be around $1000.

    Don't worry, the mass production will shift to a low wage, right to work state like Arkansas, Alabama, or South Carolina.icon_neutral.gif
