My feeling about producing something abroad is the basis on this is done: HP (and other inventors) is giving its technology to be copied.
Also, when they privileges other to make all the service, I believe that they are loosing the capability of doing it at home...
HP calculators were always more expensive than others, I believe even TI ones, but this was compensated by their quality. You can operate your 11C, 15C or 41C until today, try do this with a TI-59 - it probably will have serious keyboard problems.
HP have produced its calculators here in Brazil too, but, at that time, there was no transfer of details or it would almost be impossible to replicate its hardware as it is today.
Well, any way, this is just my modest opinion. I really don't have all information to judge a big CEO or predict something. I just don't want to see people loosing their job due to bad administrators.
