A new report from Bloomberg claims that the government of China has excluded a number of Apple products, including the iPad, the iPad mini and a number of MacBook laptops from a list of approved products that can be purchased with public money.

Bloomberg cites unnamed sources for the basis of their report, claiming that the 10 Apple products went missing on the latest Chinese government procurement list that is made by the country's National Development and Reform Commission and Ministry of Finance. The report said that security concerns were to blame for the removal of the Apple devices but does not include iPhones. The list is made to be followed by all central Communist Party departments, along with government ministries and all local governments.

Neither Apple nor the Chinese government have commented on Bloomberg's report. What do you think about this possible ban of many Apple products from the Chinese government?
