Starting Thursday, Apple will take orders for its new all-American Mac Pro computer. The product is the first in its $100 million “Made in the USA” drive announced in October.
Chief Executive Tim Cook proudly tweeted the launch of the product, which is not only assembled in the U.S. but made of domestically manufactured components.
The high-end, cylindrical computer will be twice as fast as the current model, while using 70 percent less power.
It is, however, expected to have a small impact on Apple’s operations, says Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, who predicts that it will only account for one percent of the company’s sales in 2014.
