Flextronics Said to be Hiring Workers to Help Work on Apple's New Line of Desktop PCs
According to the Austin American-Statesman, Flextronics America is currently in the middle of a hiring effort that will see the company employing as many as 1,700 workers to build a “next-generation desktop computer” at the company’s facility in Austin, Texas. Although Flextronics won’t reveal the identity of the computer or the company behind it, speculation points toward Apple’s radically redesigned Mac Pro. The following was reported regarding the matter:
Flextronics America, which has ramped up hiring and spent tens of millions of dollars to renovate its Northwest Austin factory over the past two years, will start manufacturing a "next generation desktop computer" at the upgraded plant, according to a presentation it filed Monday with Travis County commissioners.
The document, part of a push by the computer and electronics manufacturer to have its Central Texas facilities designated as a foreign trade zone, suggests the company already created 879 jobs for the project and could add another 815 positions if it hits peak targets.
It was previously announced by the Cupertino California company that the new Mac Pro would be launching later this year and the machine is expected to be at the company’s media event reportedly scheduled for next Tuesday.
We’ll have to wait and see if the speculation turns out to be true by being patient.

They shouldn't be hiring people. Just let their interns do it for 18 hours a day.
