But When you take a laptop online or offline, it says  made in China.

So, people get confused as to whether it was made by China or some other country.

So the question arise from it, are they made in China?

Before Going to explain anything first understand that above laptop companies has manufacturing plants around the world.  So, these companies made laptops in different countries according area of demand and market survey.

From this you will understand that laptops of any company are not only ‘Made in China’ but also made in other countries.

Admittedly, many companies are dependent on China for laptop manufacturing, but this does not mean that they do not make laptops in other countries.

The above companies often assemble in China or use some Chinese parts. This is why you see the Made in China tag on laptops.

On the other hand, keep in mind that their parts, laptops and much more are not just made in China. So, these companies manufactures parts or imports parts from different countries too.

So, china is the just another country like other countries that manufactures laptops for these companies.

Most importantly, I want clear, Assembly and manufacturing of laptops are two different things. The assembly consists of importing parts and joining them together. Sometimes the product is only assembled in China and so you see the Made in China tag according to some rules.

On the other hand, manufacturing includes designing, creating, and developing parts. To understand more, you need to know how and where these laptops are made?

2. Foreign Laptop brands: laptops made other than china

After covid-19 impact people are more often searching for Laptops not made in China 2020. So, here are some Non-Chinese laptop brands in India.

Apple is a well-known brand and quality is their first choice. Apple’s products are high cost but they provide you with the same product value.

Manufacturing and Assembly: Apple laptops are designed in the United States. It has manufacturing units in countries such as Mexico, Austin, china, Vietnam, India and many more. 

Mainly, apple has three partners for contract manufacturing of devices – Foxconn, Wistron and Pegatron. This shows that Apple’s manufacturing presence is all over the world. 

Apple has already started assembly / manufacturing for smartphones in other countries and India is one of them. There is no doubt that soon there will be more emphasis on manufacturing laptops in other countries as well.

For some reason, the company has shifted its focus to manufacturing or assembly in China over the past few years as production in the US has slowed. Because there was a lot of demand for laptops in the market at that time and the company wanted to provide laptops in the market as soon as possible.

As a result, Apple needs to have a large production, supply chain, large infrastructure and labor to meet the market demand of products. For this, the ‘Apple’ company had focused on producing more in China. But now Apple has made a lot of changes in this.

Recently, the company has decided to bring out a lot of production from China and has also done some shifting.

Shifting out of China involves further devices such as iPad, iPhones and Homepod mini, etc. To know more, you can read my other article about apple by clicking here.

What did you understand after reading?

Above all laptop brands are not made in china only. Yes, so many companies manufacture in china because of the availability of cheap and skilled infrastructure or work-face.

That’s the reason products of some brands labeled with tag ‘Made in China’. It just means that they assembled or manufactured in china.

Clearly, it does not mean that particular company is a Chinese. 

Secondly, all above companies also have products range made other than china. Therefore, while buying such products you need figure out which are those products by yourself. 

Now day’s foreign countries started shifting their production from China to India. Also, they want to start a manufacturing in India. 

So lets hope these companies will manufacture more products in India.

3. Indian laptop brands:

I love writing about Indian brands instead of Chinese, seeing the changed behavior of China and the trouble it is causing to India.

Due to this behavior of China, Indian people now give priority to Indian goods as much as they can.

At the same time, the government is also helping the electronic industry by providing schemes.

Yes, it took time for India to get into this industry but it is important to start with anything. Hence, for now, leave old things.

So, let’s hope for a better future.

Basic information:

India is slowly making progress in the field of electronics. In India, the emphasis is being laid on the manufacture of electronic parts.

Actually, we don’t have so much Indian companies in the laptop category. Although, i have tried to mention all Indian laptop companies below.

Here are some laptop companies in India:

5. Conclusion on laptop not made in china:

I think i have given enough information related to laptop brands that are not made in china. Most of the time people cant find appropriate information related to devices.

As a result, consumers mistakenly buy products that they don’t want. Because of this, people indirectly buy Chinese products instead of Indian or foreign brands.

One thing to note is that China also imports parts and materials from many countries. I agree that China is ahead in manufacturing but if you want to expand Indian manufacturing, you need to buy Indian and non-Chinese brands more.

Don’t misunderstand any Indian or foreign brand as Chinese based on misinformation as it causes loss to our own companies. 

Even after so much explanation, many people do not understand, so once again I say that the priority of buying products should always be as follows.

The first priority is that you should buy Indian brands Made in India products. The second is to buy non-Chinese Made in India products. But if you don’t get the product you want in both these categories, you can choose the rest of the options.

One last thing to note is that a company’s products can be Made in India, Made in China or Malaysia, Vietnam as they have manufacturing plants in different countries. 

So be careful when you buy the product so that you get the product you want and do not blame anyone.

I have tried to tell you everything but you are able to make your own decision.
