I believe the MacMini rumors are saying that it will be produced by FoxConn for Apple, and FoxConn may be moving factories to the US. But the reason the Mac Pro is also a heavy favorite for US manufacturing is its size and weight, where producing it in the US would considerably reduce shipping costs.
Cook did say one line would be manufactured ENTIRELY in the US, and the reason the Pro and Mini are contenders is that they are the only models that sell under a million units a year. But from a logistics standpoint, the Pro would certainly be the logical choice.
But seriously, I don't really care where the Pro is manufactured. My Chinese built 2008 Pro has been running non stop for nearly 5 years. Chinese QC is not a concern.
