European version of the new Mac Pro is 'assembled in China'
Apple left an impression that the computer would be made in Texas, but that seems to only be true for consumers in the Americas

Apple’s new Mac Pros that shipped to Europe appear to be assembled in China even though the company said earlier that it's producing the new model at its Texas facility.
French blog MacGeneration said that Mac Pros delivered in Europe are embossed with the words “Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China.” That seems to confirm an earlier suspicion that Mac Pro units made in Austin, Texas are only shipped to customers in the US, Canada and other countries in North and South America. Last month, the company said those Mac Pros would ship to customers “across the Americas.”
US President Donald Trump, who has long been urging Apple to manufacture in the US, recently visited Apple’s production facility in Texas and touted it as an accomplishment of the heavy tariffs he imposed on China.
