Traditionally, Dell has relied on Chinese factories to manufacture computer components. However, a number of manufacturing disruptions on the Chinese mainland have caused companies like Dell to start shifting production elsewhere.
One of the largest assembly plants is located in Limerick, Ireland. This facility assembles Dell laptops, desktops, servers, and storage systems. The plant is also responsible for sourcing and assembling other computers from around the world.
Some Dell laptops are manufactured in China, such as Alienware, Chromebook, Inspiron, Latitude, Precision, Vostro and XPS. These laptops are built to serve a wide range of customers, from general-purpose users to professionals and power users who need mobile workstations.
Many people see the 'Made in China' label on chargers from Dell and other brands. This is because Dell imports a lot of parts from China and other countries.
If you’re an American buyer, you may be concerned about purchasing a laptop from Dell. This is because of the reliance on Chinese parts and quality concerns.
The good news is that Dell does make some specialized and professional laptops for United States buyers that aren’t produced in China, so they won’t be labeled with the ‘Made in China’ tag. These laptops are called positively specialized and professional for their intended user base.
