$100 Laptop: Made in China by Taiwaneese Company

MIT Picks Maker of $100 Laptop – Yahoo! News
Taiwan’s Quanta, the world’s largest maker of notebook computers, will manufacture an ultra-low-cost laptop developed by Nicholas Negroponte, the chairman of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Media Lab.

The article doesn’t mention that while Quanta is a Taiwaneese company, they’ve recently moved their “laptop production to mainland China”:, which, incidentally, is likely a major customer for the $100 laptop.
