    most are built in malaysia (some are not)

    shipped to the us (this is the boxing stage)

    shipped out from a depo here (this is when your shipping method; next day, ground, etc. kicks in)

    I think they've changed it where all laptops are built in Malaysia ( i could be wrong). Normally it takes 3 days (commonly called the "Boxing Stage") to transport from Malaysia to the Nashville TN - assuming you live in the USA. Then another day to be transported to the shipping depo.

    That's one hell of a good read! Never did I think the manufacturing process of laptops could be so cool!
