Apple Inc. (AAPL) plans to spend more than $100 million next year on building Mac computers in the U.S., shifting a small portion of manufacturing away from China, the country that has handled assembly of its products for years.

“Next year we’re going to bring some production to the U.S.,” Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek. “This doesn’t mean that Apple will do it ourselves, but we’ll be working with people and we’ll be investing our money.”

Rumors have it that it's the 2013 (to be announced) upgraded Mac Pro (the tower) that will be made in the US. Makes the most sense anyway as it is a heavy, bulky machine, that's got big parts and does not use complex materials or technology to assemble. Also the mac pro is very expensive so a slight increase in cost due to higher wages will be less detrimental on the sale price and/or margins.
