Source Claims Apple and Foxconn Will Move Mac Mini Production to the US

Rumors continue to circulate that Apple and its main manufacturing partner Foxconn will be moving production for the tiny Mac mini desktop computer to the United States. Previously rumors suggested that the Mac Pro would be constructed in the US, but it looks like the smaller and cheaper Mac computer will come to the US instead. The rumor comes from a source that claims to be familiar with the negotiations.

There is no indication at this time of exactly where the Apple manufacturing facility would be located. However, other rumors indicate that California is likely to be where any new Foxconn facility is located.

Naturally, Apple has made no official comment on this rumor and neither has Foxconn. Manufacturing Mac mini within the United States will significantly increase production costs. Presumably, the move wouldn't increase pricing and would instead cut into Apple's fat margins.
