It’s a well known fact that Apple has been outsourcing assembling of all of it’s devices  to Foxconn, a Chinese company. Given high labor cost in the USA, it doesn’t make an economic sense to assemble a computer in the USA. We hope, it isn’t just a typo.

For example, like all other Apple devices, back of an iPad reads "Designed by Apple in California Assembled in China".
