HP is one of the OEM ( Original Equipment Manufacturer ) using all the ODM ( Original Design Manufacturer ) in Taiwan and China to manufacture all the Server, Workstation, Desktop and Laptop systems.
HP does not have its own factory to manufacture Laptop system. ODM such Quanta, Compal, Inventec and etc are making all the different series of Laptop systems for HP.
As far as I know, the ONLY laptop OEM who has its own factory to manufacture PC systems is Panasonic. Fujitsu also owns its own factory for a limited series of PC systems but is in the process of out-sourcing their PC systems to Taiwan/China in order to cut the cost down.
Most the ODM design houses are located at Taiwan. They may build a limited Prototype system in Taiwan to prove the concept. As soon as the design is proven to be functional, they will move the full production to China ( some free-trade zone outside of Shanghai in the North and in Shenzhen outside of Hong Kong in the South ).
