I am so tired of lead paint China fears, coupled with jobs being "off-shored". This year we are buying almost nothing for the holidays, because we refuse to buy anything not made in the USA. Our Xmas is looking lean, with lots of money put in college funds and little put in toys.

Unfortunately, the only things I ever want for Christmas are electronic and I don't think any of it is made in the USA any more. About the best I can hope for is that it's made in Taiwan or Japan and not China.

So which PC is made in the USA? Someone like Dell might assemble them here, but everything inside comes from China.
