It seems clear that Dell laptops are made by Dell. But this is not always the case, many laptop models are designed and manufactured under the Dell brand, but this is a product of a completely different company. Although Dell writes on the laptop where it is made, it is difficult to read this inscription, especially in Chinese. Dell believes that it is more profitable to order the development and production of laptops, in companies that specialise in developing new models and final assembly, the finished laptop with the Dell logo then goes on sale as a Dell laptop. It is quite possible that the company’s specialists are developing new models of laptops.
Dell laptops are produced by only a few companies, Compal, Wistron and Dell itself in Brazil; in Brazil the factory produces laptops only for the Brazilian domestic market. It turns out that around 90% of Dell laptops are produced by Compal and assembled at three factories in the following countries, two factories in China are located in cities (Kunshan, Chengdu) and one Compal factory in Taiwan, Taoyuan.
