    They would cost $14,970 in retail. Interesting fact! :)

    And I thought the actual prices were steep.

    Im also wondering about that figure, not that I doubt it at all, just would be interesting to see the breakdown.

    -workers who want more $$$ for relatively repetitive simple assembly line work
    -workers who know how to negotiate health insurance
    -workers who want over time
    -who knows how many people you would need to match the productivity of one shift out of America
    -workers in America have an over estimated value of what they're worth financially, which SHOULD be what you negotiate, not some set standard.

    I think I read somewhere that was straight out of the Steve Jobs book saying why jobs decided to make them out of the US, if what I read was true I can't blame him.

    I doubt the number is that high.

    Well and do mention the fact that if the iPhone were made in US, they wouldn't be available in this quantity, as ameircans are a bit lazy, we would be OK with creating few hundred iPhone rather than thousands that are manufactured on daily basis in china.. so that low production will ofcourse raise the pricing even more, so in short the future of iPhone and Apple would be at serious stake if they were made in US!
