One thing nobody has brought up is that pretty much everything is made in China.

High end, well built products from Dell, Apple, pretty much any tech product?  All made in China, and all great quality.  The problem is not the Chinese, they are perfectly capable of building fantastic stuff.  The problem is when a company does not want the added expense of high quality production.

Completely false. Pretty much everything is assembled in China, thus the "Made in China" labels, but most of the parts are made in other countries. The iPhone, for example, is "Made in China," but China only contributes about $6.50 to the overall cost of the phone by putting the parts together. The parts themselves are made in Japan, Germany, Korea, Vietnam, etc.

True.  And now many of the A5 chips (The cpu) are made in the USA.  The article is wrong though, some other parts are made in China as well that bring the China content well over $6.50.

I bought shoes for €9 from China (including shipping). It's been a year of full time using them now, and the soles are starting to get thin. I think in a few months I'll need new ones.

This is actually better than the €50 I spent on a pair of shoes here in Europe, that lasted 2 years.

What I have found to be poor quality from China are tools.  I have bought a number of cheap screwdrivers and had them fall apart within a day of use.  Compare that to a Craftsman brand that has lasted most of my lifetime.   I bet there are very good brands of Chinese made tools, but you need to watch out for the cheap stuff.  In many ways I would call them fake tools because they are not hardened properly (or at all!).

According to Wiki and some web searches, Craftsman now manufactures a lot of their tools in China as well. I guess it's not the country, but the company, after all.

As I said a few posts above, only assembled in China. Most of the things you mentioned are made around the world, with china providing assembly only.

True, what can one expect from cheap tools/things anyway.  Smiley

Considering that for a "post Steve Jobs return" Apple user the most important "feature" is the Apple sticker attached to it, I don't see what difference it makes if it's made in China or elsewhere... as long as the glue is good enough.
