Dell to China: bring it on. Among the amazing bits of information here:

--Five years ago it took two Dell employees 14 minutes to manufacture a computer. Now it takes one employee 5 minutes.

--Even at the peak of the Christmas rush, a new order received on the factory floor at 9 a.m. is typically complete and on a truck by 1 p.m. the same day.

--Last year, General Motors's president for North America visited Dell's plant to learn about its process.
