A couple weeks ago Apple CEO Tim Cook told NBC’s Brian Williams that the company was going to invest $100 million toward building Macs in the US.According to Digitimes, an outlet which reports on the Asian-centered gadget supply chain, the Mac that Apple will build in the US is the Mac Mini.

Previous reports said that Apple would build a Mac Pro in the US.

The Mac Mini is Apple’s low-end computer. It’s a small box that comes without a keyboard or a monitor. It costs less than $1,000.

Digitimes says Apple will ship 1.2 million of them this year, and maybe 1.8 million next year.
