Duh.

#2 The 'Cone of Silence' lifted at last. Sir Richard's amazing discovery, not so very different from here or anywhere else. Stop paying taxes on it and see who owns it next.

#3 I never get tired of reading lefty tech writers wetting their pants over how Trump is dealing with this.

#4 Don't forget that Lenova (which is Chinese based) was caught with malware and spyware embedded in the operating systems of their computers a few years back.

If you are at all worried about cyber security, you should not ever buy anything manufactured in China. Their technology industry is a direct arm of their intelligence gathering machinery.

#5 So where can I buy a computer that is NOT Made in China?

#6 I mean, I have a Samsung tablet that was made in Korea but the OS is Google's Android and it sucks. I've thrown myself at this device trying to figure out how to get anything useful out of it. It works with bluetooth keyboard and mouse but even so the Android OS is more of a child's toy than a useful tool for grownups.

#7 Abu Uluque: I build my own PC's (and will help if you want, I have some spare parts). I try to restrict my purchases to Korean (Samsung) and Taiwanese (Coolermaster, Gigabyte, Asrock) manufactured components. There is a USA made power supply, but likely has hybrid origins. That covers everything except CPU's; you never know there, but AMD's Ryzen's are supposed to be made in Taiwan. Nvidia is a USA company that uses TSMC, a Taiwanese company, for their fabs to make their GPU's. So buy an Nvidia card from Gigabyte and avoid the PRC. Mostly. Many components and chips will be made in the PRC. This wasn't true before, but it is now.

You can get a computer from Supermicro and spec it for no PRC parts, but I can't swear to full compliance, and it will be crazy pricey as you are specifying something that will be audited to the component level throughout the build. My only Mac is a Mac Pro that was supposed to be made in the USA. I know all the parts are not.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
