I'm no Apple fan, but I applaud them on this. I would guess that if there were an option with a cost difference were on the order of $10-25, many consumers would pick the "assembled in USA" option ($50+, probably not?). With the right kind of marketing campaign and public pressure, I would imagine that businesses would pick this option either as a marketing strategy, due to public pressure (guilt?), genuine interest in the US economy, or some combination of those?

I always look for made in USA and it gives me more confidence.

I know what you're saying. Same problem with Australian made cars (from Ford and GM)- it's hard to beat the Japanese and now the Koreans for quality. Like in the USA, the Australian government is propping up the automakers who are flogging old technology to support local jobs. It stifles innovation and the move to more ecologically friendly technology.
