A couple of days ago it was reported that some of Apple's new iMacs are manufactured in the US, and now Apple CEO Tim Cook officially confirmed that the company will bring back some of its production of Mac computers to the US in 2013. Cook revealed that Apple will invest over $100 million to build Macs in the US, but only one of the existing Mac lines would be manufactured exclusively in the US.
"This doesn't mean that Apple will do it ourselves, but we'll be working with people and we'll be investing our money," Cook said.

He told NBC in an interview to be aired late Thursday that only one of the existing Mac lines would be manufactured exclusively in the United States.

Higher-tech products are largely made overseas, often in subcontracted factories not owned by the brands whose products they are making.
