MSBLOG team to visit Dell Laptop Factory

It’s in the works folks — looks like two of us from the MSBLOG team will get to visit the Dell Corp. Penang, Malaysia laptop factory:

Dell Penang, Malaysia Factory

I got the idea to visit this factory when I was in Austin, Texas the other week at Dell’s Corporate Headquarters there — and also the home to their desktop manufacturing center. Basically, if you order a Dimension or OptiPlex, its made here in the US. If you order a Latitude or Inspiron, its made at the Malaysia factory.

I just want to know what they do with the systems that maybe work … say 85% of the time? I’ll be happy to take it off their hands…

Going to have to plan this to be on a Friday so that Mr. Gan will be able to come along as well…
