Now, to do this, in addition to designing the machine, in the last year and a half we have designed and built the machine to build the machines. We've invested over $20 million to build the computer industry's first automated factory in Fremont, California, overlooking Ford and GM. The factory's based on the concepts of just-in-time delivery, of zero-defect parts, and it's a manufacturing process which allows extremely high-volume production of extremely high-quality products. And were it not for this shareholders meeting today, we'd be building over 500 Macintoshes.
Macintosh was developed by a small team of incredibly talented artists. And the rest of Apple supported this core group of about 100 people, and they were able to able leverage the resources of a billion-dollar corporation to create their dream. And I have never in my life had the privilege of working with such fine and talented people. The experience of Macintosh has changed all of our lives who had the privilege of working on it for the last few years. And we think it's gonna change the millions of people who buy them in the next few years.
