Macintosh – Built in Fremont

The San Jose Mercury News on Friday ran a story from 1984 about the then upcoming Macintosh introduction. I found the final comment in the article a real sign of the times:

Macs will be made in Apple’s new automated factory in Fremont, which sources said cost $20 million and can turn out a machine every 27 seconds.

Ah, yes — we actually used to build things in the Bay Area twenty years ago!
