    PC hardware to get more expensive - 25% tax due to US China Trade-war
    2018 Hardware Thread-image.png

    The US-China trade war might soon have an effect on computer hardware. A new listing reveals a new 25% import tax for electronics made in China by USD companies.

    The listing is revealing "electronic integrated circuits: processors and controllers," "electronic integrated circuits: memories," "electronic integrated circuits: amplifiers," "electronic integrated circuits: other," which covers pretty much any PC hardware. This new info was spotted by Flyordie over at TPU who noticed the new import taxes on CNN being listed in this document, and that is not good news, especially for US residing folks:

    We in Serbia are really chummy with China and still have higher prices on Chinese electronics than in US.

    Hi,
    China.... have been charging U.S.A.... tariffs for a very long time if they and others were really interested in free trade they wouldn't do it
    U.S. is just doing or really threatening to do the same as others are already doing.

    Hi,
    We've been paying for all that for a long-long time in other ways with industries moving off shore
    I'd pay more for local products development again.

    China.... can't live without the free money their tariffs bring in !

    China is just following in the footsteps of Japan and S. Korea, Electronics production has been moving all over the place, wherever cheap labor and right tax and other amenities like infrastructure. That's where money is. At some time Singapore was hot, than Ireland etc. If there's a blame to be laid on, it's the parent companies that move production in search of profits.
    Remember " Cheap as Japanese toy" or first Hyundai toy cars ?
    At one time an US general said that another war with Japan is impossible because American planes could not take off without Japanese electronics.
