An interesting article.  This was on Slashdot, so many of you may have
already seen it, but for those who haven't:

Wow, Ok this caught my attention ...

"this 8-story factory encompasses 45,000 square meters of work space, and
includes 18 SMT lines, 10 DIP lines, and 9 Testing lines. Nan-Ping's
capacity is 800,000 motherboards and 400,000 videocards a month."

I love numbers like that :)

I really enjoyed reading that.  One thing I didn't see that I was curious about was what happens to boards that fail some test or another.

It was mentioned that the boards that fail the initial automated tests would
be sent to a senior technician to have individual components manually tested
and problems fixed.. But it didn't mention what happens if it fails this
manual test stage..

I'm certain they would spend a certain amount of time attempting to fix
the problem, and it would get tossed after they determine they are
spending too much of their potential cash [if they were to fix the
board]. 'tossed' means landfilled. I doubt they try to desolder parts.
