Latin American Computers
Although it is still not possible to speak of having a totally Latin American computer product development and production industry , the truth is that the region began to walk the path many years ago, assembling components from other countries and marketing them with its own seal in each of its markets. And they have been quite successful, since most of the time, they have positioned themselves in privileged places competing with giants of the industry like those mentioned above.
Unfortunately, there is a great controversy on this subject, since for many, this does not mean having their own computer industry, since it is only unpacking parts and reassembling them, but the truth is that many manufacturers of those considered large carry out the same practices , or directly buy pre-designed models and label them with your own brand.
At this point the consumer acquires them thinking that they are high quality products without wondering about the origin of what they are buying.
But faced with the question of whether having a national computer industry implies the manufacture from start to finish of all its components, we must think that today, almost all the electronic products we consume come from China, even the most expensive.
This is due to the technical and production capacity of the Chinese industry, with which it is impossible to compete, especially in the manufacture of high-tech components on a large scale and at moderate prices. It is for this reason that higher-level manufacturers develop and produce their equipment in the Asian country, since it is much cheaper than doing it in their own territories.
The manufacture in Latin America of any of the components of a computer such as processors, RAM, hard drives or the motherboard, although it is not an impossible task, since we have the intellectual capacity to achieve it, would imply an investment in machinery and training that of course must be added to the final product.
This is the first point where they would begin to be at a disadvantage, and it would also enter into a competition with the large manufacturers that have already acquired all the knowledge and the necessary machines, in an area where little remains to be done, except to manufacture models that adopt new technologies.
Manufacture computers in Latin America
We must also bear in mind that the region in economic terms is not stable, which is why it is almost impossible for a computer industry to be born and develop, however there are several Latin American computer manufacturers that have managed to be accepted in the computer market with great success. .
Examples of this are the Mexican Inco, Vulcan, Ghia and Tech Pad , or manufacturers that have been in the market for more than 20 years, such as Lanix , all of them companies that produce all kinds of computer products such as tablets, desktop computers, telephones. smart phones, notebooks and All-in-One.
Another case of Latin American manufacturers of computer products is Positivo, a Brazilian company that has been in the market for more than 30 years producing countless devices such as tablets, televisions, smartphones, computers, notebooks and many others.
Also in Argentina there are renowned computer manufacturers, such as BGH and EXO, the former being a traditional national manufacturer of electronic devices for several decades in the country.
Both producers manufacture all kinds of devices such as notebooks, desktop computers, smartphones and tablets, among others.
Although computer brands such as Compaq, IBM and Everex have been left out of the list , the truth is that these brands are no longer on the market, most of the time the result of commercial alliances that have joined them with other companies. to disappear as a brand forever.
However, the others that have been mentioned in the post are all excellent computer brands that will provide us with years of faithful service.
