More Big Q money goes to Taiwan

Compaq caught not following Dell's every move

Compaq plans to increase its outsourcing from companies in Taiwan by 20 per cent in 2000. The PC vendor said it would buy $8.5 billion of product from the island, compared to last year's $7.1 billion, Taiwan's Commercial Times reported. Goods bought from local companies will include servers, peripherals and components. The move comes hot on the heels of Dell's announcement that it would be cutting back on its notebook manufacture outsourcing from Taiwan. ® Related stories: Compaq now a victim of anti-Dell move to Taiwan Compaq fears for $7 billion if Taiwan and China fight Compaq strikes $7 billion Taiwan supply deal
