Hello everybody, I was just curious. Does the apple company actually create EVERYTHING in the iMac? Such as the cores, and vice-versa? Sorry for bothering you, though. I want to know this, just because I LOVE the way Steve makes his awesome products

If by "cores" you mean the cpu...no, Apple does not make this...Intel makes the cpu's.

In short, Apple designs very few custom parts, designs their boxes, writes some software and outsources manufacturing.

Apple _makes_ no hardware, it is all outsourced to third party companies. That goes for the individual parts inside each of their computers too. They do design _some_ low level parts along with their Macs, iOS devices and other miscellaneous hardware, all of which get manufactured by other companies.

Apple also writes their own operating systems and applications they release. I'm not sure it is complete yet, but Apple is moving to an online distribution model. When they distribute software on disc, they have third parties produce that physical medium.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
