    Lenovo has decided to change its manufacturing strategy and will outsource the whole of its own-brand notebook production to Taiwan makers, according to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) report, citing the vice president of Lenovo's worldwide consumer notebook division. In order for Lenovo to expand its economic scale, the company has decided to remove one maker from the original four (Quanta, Compal, Wistron and Inventec) that produce consumer-based notebooks, while the company will add more makers to its ThinkPad manufacturing list.

    i think it is because most people see made in china (stereotypically) as cheap and poorly made whilst stuff made in Taiwan has have far better reliability and build quality, but besides that there are a lot of oem laptop manufacturers based in Taiwan which could lead to reduced costs lenovo if competitive contract bidding takes place.
