New Mac Pro Has 'Product of Thailand' Label, Final Assembly Still in USA

Apple's new Mac Pro has a "Product of Thailand" label, but final assembly of the desktop computer still takes place in the U.S., according to an FCC filing.

Mac Pro Feature Blue
We have been informed that the new Mac Pro is assembled at the same Austin, Texas facility where it has been assembled since 2013, and units distributed to U.S. customers continue to include components designed, developed, and manufactured by more than a dozen American companies. Apple has not indicated why a "Product of Thailand" label was added to the Mac Pro — this fine print does not appear on the previous model.

Mac Pro Product of Thailand
Fine print on 2023 Mac Pro models sold in the U.S. reads:

Designed by Apple in California. Product of Thailand. Final assembly in the USA.

Fine print on 2019 Mac Pro models sold in the U.S. read:

Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in USA.

All other Macs are fully manufactured and assembled in Asian countries.

The new Mac Pro features the same overall design as the 2019 model, but it has been updated with Apple's custom M2 Ultra chip. The computer can be ordered now, and will begin arriving to customers and launch in stores this Tuesday.

‪Final assembly in USA meaning adding the bottom legs yourself?

I see that Adobe Reader still has that bug where it shows a lowercase L in bold!

It's nice to know they are keeping a few people in the US employed still, even if they're just boxing them up.

Does anyone know what label the Apple Mac Pro Wheels Kit has?

Alternatively, can the 700$ wheels be used on an office chair?
Yes, but office chairs have five wheels, so you have to buy two sets. (Clever strategy by Apple.)

Cool. Just like when the iMac was assembled in Cork.
