The issue for me has been simple. Many of the smaller notebook vendors just buy a boatload (or container) of Taiwan made laptops and sell them.
Why this is an issue is that some small broken part like a drive door or floppy drive will drive you into a rage when you find out that in 1 year you can't get parts for the machine.
There is a lot of history about this and the story can be read many times about such dispensers of laptops.
Given you can get a nice laptop for 699 to 999USD from makers that really do have service centers, spare parts and more across more than a few countries I'd say that I will not buy such a make.
Has anyone used or is familiar with the Jetta JetBook laptop? If so, what are your comments on it? Considering getting one and is to be comprable to Dell laptops.
