 Quoting: pleadian




Though much is made of the fact that they're "Designed in California", land of sun, sand and Hollywood, the majority of Apple's products are actually 'made' in Chinese sweatshops.

The average factory worker at Longhua, China makes roughly $50/month, or $600/year. Out of this, half is deducted by the factory owners for room and board.

Re: Anyone in here ordered a macbook from apple online store?
Yup. Ordered 3 from there.

Did you think they were made in America?

Takes a week or so. I remember waiting for that first one. I felt EXACTLY like you feel right now. I kept watching that FedEx site tracking the movement of the package, wondering why it was sitting in 1 freakin' place longer than a day.

It'll be worth it.

Bought mine from the apple online store about 2 yrs ago. Got it within 3 days. It shows on the casing "Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China". I think most of the products from Apple are like this. But works as good as day I bought it, no system crashes or corrupted OS as often happens with my PCs. However, my main machine is still a pc as there is much more software that I need available for PCs than Macs.

 Quoting: pleadian


I think it was a week. By the time I ordered the 3rd I still had my 2nd so I wasn't as anxious - it was that first one that seemed to take forever - but I would think if it hasn't left China yet it sure should tomorrow.

But remember it still has to clear customs... and they can foul things up like nobody's business. Especially if they get some 'intel' then they hold everything on the plane and go thru it piece by friggin piece. All in case bin Laden stowed away in a box, you know.

Re: Anyone in here ordered a macbook from apple online store?
Apple has admitted they used child labor last year to assemble their products. They supposedly stopped that but they are still being criticized for using factories that abuse workers and where conditions are poor. Last week, it emerged that 62 workers at a factory that manufactures products for Apple and Nokia had been poisoned by n-hexane, a toxic chemical that can cause muscular degeneration and blur eyesight.

You received one that was 'refurbished' .

Those are ones sent back to apple by customers who have complaints. Apple replaces a part or two, then sells it for a little cheaper price.
