    i think if you customize any of the features it ships from china where its assembled. if you buy it stock, then it ships in the US.

    I believe Asus is actually the OEM of most Apple systems and their plant is in Shanghai.

    I think only the notebooks are made by Asus, I do believe Foxconn does most of their desktop computers, ipods, and iphones.

    Foxconn is in China too ;)

    Most design centers are in Taiwan, but being built in China.
