Agreed. If a design is set up as full ODM project with the inception and development outside of Shenzhen or Ningbo (sic) the fact that it gets made in Shenzhen or Ningbo is irrelevant.
Comments such as labour cost in China is cheap or same place as Apple in themselves are lightweight and cheap.
I've "assembled" monitors in Germany with Polish labour from Semi Knock Downs of 100% Chinese origin in the past to be relieved of 14%, import duty for a very well known monitor manufacturer. Hence why some of the comments I see in these like this are a joke.
With that said you have hit the nail on the head and I'm 110% with your sentiments.
