Following Tim Cook’s announcement in early December that Apple plans to produce one of its Mac computers exclusively in the U.S., Digitimes now reports that the lineup would be the Mac Mini and not the Mac Pro as previously speculated.
According to the hit-and-miss publication, Foxconn Electronics will be responsible for manufacturing the Mac Mini units in its operating bases in the U.S.
Currently, Foxconn has about 15 operating bases in the US and the company reportedly plans to start recruiting workers in 2013 for new automated production lines.
Digitimes also added that Mac Mini shipments will reach 1.8 million units in 2013, up 30% from 2012.
