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