You mean assembly plant.

But it's good news for my American cousins... and good politics too maybe.

I also like Lenovo laptops... not bad imo.

Good politics, and good business. Tax laws are not very ridged when it comes time to attract a company to an area; the plant generally ends up being free after the tax breaks, with millions left over. On top of that, they can bounce the sales around to different countries easier if they start and end in the same country.

They can up grade any plant just like Tesla Motors did in Fremont, CA. (Toyota-GM)

I'd like to drive one of them.

My brother converted a car to electric... it's weird to drive. The power steering pump is noisy at the lights!

Then you can use it as your pick-up-line in the clubs... "wanna take a ride in my electric sports car babe? It's fast AND environmentally sound!" :)

Everything else being equal, only company to compare with so far as labor is concerned is Dell. It certainly is a whole lot easier to minimize the transportation costs by minimizing the handling of the final completely built box.

I have personally worked with precoated sheet metal that does not require any further cleaning up after forming. If they resort to that even building cabinets by simply transporting fully formed sheets requiring only bending could cut costs further !
