HP has not produced leptopes on its own for more than 10 years, the production of leptopes is ordered from major electronics manufacturers who, thanks to the large production capacity, can produce and develop new models of laptops. And only in India, there are still production facilities for assembling leptopes owned by HP. HP orders the production of leptopes from the following manufacturers.

- Wistron is another Chinese electronics manufacturer, which also assembles HP leptopes, and employs about 1500 people in its assembly line.
In India, there is a factory owned by HP, which collects leptopes for the Indian market. This is the policy of the Indian government. In an attempt to create jobs, taxes on supplied electronics from abroad have been introduced. It is more profitable for companies to open an assembly line in India and thus reduce the final cost of products. The assembly line producing leptopes employs about 450 people.
