Here’s How Apple’s Mac Pros Are Made
Though the most excitement at Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) media event in San Francisco on Tuesday surrounded the company’s new line of iPad tablets, Apple also debuted some new MacBook Pro laptops and revealed that it will soon release a new Mac Pro desktop computer.
The new Mac Pro is significant because Apple is moving the computer’s production back to the U.S. MacRumors reports that already 2,000 people across 20 states are at work on the project, and the computer will likely be assembled at Apple’s facilities in Austin, Texas. Apple’s Flextronics America facilities in Austin announced earlier this month that they’re hiring 1,700 employees to work on what was described as a “next generation desktop computer.”
While the computer wasn’t unveiled at the event on Tuesday, Apple did screen a kind of how-it’s-made video showing the process of creating the new computers.
