Your next laptop: made in China?

Author: JT Smith

From ZDNET.co.uk: "Notebook manufacturing is rapidly migrating to mainland China, a
move that will inevitably lead to lower laptop prices.

The major Taiwanese notebook makers -- which design and
manufacture a substantial portion of the notebook PCs sold
worldwide--have recently detailed plans to produce notebook
components and perform partial assembly in China next year.
These companies also are lobbying for laws that would allow them
to produce complete notebooks on the mainland -- right now, it's
illegal."
