100 Billion, that's a lot of money of money for just 5 million laptops WTF!

Then I realized, 100 Billion Taiwanese dollars are just 3 billion American ones... sigh...

So what is the specs of these laptops that makes them this hot ?

Maybe "Forest Gump" laptop manufacturers could take a hint from Quanta's success and build the same as it might just work here in "live is like a box of chocolates" country.

The need of the few (execs) outweights the need of the many (workers).

Nothing new in todays world where there are quite litterary some people who walks over corpses to get a few extra dollars to put in the already overgrown pile.

WarraWarra, they are an ODM (Original Device Manufacturer) they only make device to their customers specs. So Dell says "build me this" and they do it. This most likely includes most models from many many companies.

quanta builds a good bit of acers laptops also. prices for the mb's range from 50-600$ depending on what it has on it. some of them have the 3dchip and processor on the MB which jack the price way up. processor you dont see as much, 3dchip you used to but now everyone is moving to pciexpress.

There nothing wrong with entrepreneurs profiting. However, they should take a risk and increase supply, which would increase employment, and economic growth (for the world!).
