Apple is not a manufacturer - nearly all of their stuff (iPhones, iPads, laptops, etc) are manufactured by FoxConn in China. On a plus side, they've recently been improving worker conditions some, so fewer of their workers will commit suicide, yay! Plus Google and Apple are mostly rivals in mobile devices, so Apple has no reason to have anything to do with a Nexus or Android device.

Acer would be a possibility.
