Wow, I thought all Intel fab's were in Malaysia, Tawain, etc.

Nope, Intel has 2 fabs in Arizona, 2 in Hillsboro, Oregon, and several more in the US.  In fact, I drive by the Hillsboro fab every day on my way to work. Very excited about the new Hillsboro fab, Oregon can definitely use the jobs, we have one of the worst unemployment rates in the US currently. The Portland Oregon area was known as "The Silicon Forest" because of all the high-tech manufacturing - there's still a lot here, but a lot of it has been outsourced to other countries. I got my start at my first real jobs after high school doing electronics assembly in this area.
