Apple in September confirmed that its newly redesigned Mac Pro will be manufactured in Austin.

In the executive disclosures, the gift from Cook is recorded as a "Mac Pro Computer, the first created at the Flex Factory in Austin Texas". The factory opened in 2013.

Apple continues to manufacture Mac Pro models in the United States for use by customers in the USA, while models sold in other countries are still assembled in China.

"We're seeing the beginning of a very powerful and important plant", Trump said at the time.

Not just Apple, Boeing and Ford also gifted Trump, according to the filing.

In more practical terms, we've memory usage improvements, crash fixes, and a load of quest and save bugs getting addressed. Cyberpunk 2077 on Stadia also fixed some issues like bad textures, audio problems, and deadzone settings on controller.

While it's common for presidents to receive gifts, there are rules and regulations around what they can accept.

While the Mac Pro is a costly gift, it's the baseline cost of the current 2020 model. That is earlier than you think about a $999 Professional stand and different bells and whistles like $5,999 for a 32-inch Professional Show XDR with Retina 6K show and $25,00zero for 1.5 TB of reminiscence. All in, a Mac Pro can cost up to $62,571.

The gift probably received the gift in November 2019, when he visited the factory accompanied by Apple CEO Tim Cook.

In recent weeks, Cook - who held a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in 2016 - appears to have distanced himself from Trump in the wake of the attack on the Capitol. Relations between the Trump administration and Apple were troubled throughout the administration: both met a few times, including to talk about privacy, and the former president had as one of the campaign platforms the transfer of factories from the company to the United States of America - something that was not always respected by Cook. Cook has also spoken out against Trump's immigration policies.
