duh.

most electronics are made by ODM’s, laptops are no exception.

Go to a computer show in Taiwan and you will see all the ODMs.
Laptops and scanners are mostly made by Taiwanese companies.

No one makes everything anymore. An American car has foreign parts…in fact there is no such thing as an American car anymore…things are multinational now and parts are sourced from all over the world.

Dells and Apples are mostly made in Asia.

huh!!! Im lost.

Somewhere in the most recent Wired is a diagram of a car with callouts showing the different souces for various parts of a typical car today. Instructive of this point, I guess.

yep - it’s a half page article about the Saturn Vue - 30% of it is made overseas. u have to be living in a cave to not know about this trend.
