    I heard that while much of the world base their manufacturing in China, many Chinese company have shifted their production in Vietnam for even cheaper labour.
    Pretty sure that Taiwan used to be a major manufacturing hub before China took over so it is kinda interesting to see companies go back.
    Well it's probably safer to diversify the manufacturing base.

    Why such a resistance to the Chinese?
    Loads of things have come out of China for as long as I can remember, things are cheaper to make out there and the amount of money they are putting into dev and expansion is huge..
    Or is it just a case of the USA can't stand not being the dominant power so they're trying to hold on to what they have by any means necessary?

    the problem isn't necessarily a problem with the Chinese, the problem is people dont trust the relationship between the US and China to stay stable. Regardless of who they support in that battle the choice they have to make is moving to a country that are less likely to get in a trade/tariff war with the US.

    Re: HP, Dell, Asus, and Acer plan to shift production from China

    Question is - What percentage of the components will be made in China to workaround the tariffs? I.e. Can a Chinese firm ship a laptop minus screen to Vietnam, attach a Samsung screen from South Korea and avoid the tariffs? I'm sure if there is a percentage they can get away with they will!

    this trump inspired china tariff is certainly not going to benefit any citizens in the united states, and will only seem to benefit larger corporations that may have large holdings in japan or taiwan. this is not good, will not help american manufactures, they all outsource work to india and other places anyhow.

    Re: HP, Dell, Asus, and Acer plan to shift production from China

    It seems to me to be a sensible precaution. Other countries, especially in Asia, are technologically sophisticared enough to be able to do the work, and I've seen that first hand on trips to Taiwan and Malaysia. No doubt others, like Thailand, Vietnam etc are capable too, and China no longer has the cost-advantage that it did.

    So, spreading it around a bit, on the precautionary principle involving eggs in multiple baskets, has an appeal. Add the trade tensions, and the not-insubstatial issues behind them, between the US and China and this starts to look like an eminently sensible long-term insurance policy.

    Well competition is good, maybe this way china will improve their standards, both in work conditions and in production.

    Agreed on all points. It's just being pragmatic.
