That price could be much lower says my pinkie.
Prices for consumer electronics tend to be higher in China due to Value Added Tax at several levels of the supply chain. When I first came to China I had purchased an HP laptop in Canada (lots of taxes there too!). Out of curiosity, I priced the same model at a local store. They call HP "huipo" here. It was significantly more expensive. I can buy some components at comparable prices or a little higher, but many things are much higher.
