The Laptop Supply Chain
Slashdot.org commentary (with a link to a free WSJ article). The WSJ article discusses the somewhat hidden laptop supply chain. Dell used to do “final assembly” (just a few last components) in Austin or Nashville. Now it sounds like that is all done in Asia, with laptops being so light to ship and all. I'm surprised to read how Quanta has built heavily robotic assembly lines in China. I thought cheap labor was the appeal of manufacturing in China?
