does Dell make all its laptops in the states and then ship them to the rest of the world? or do they have building centers throughout the world?

No dell manufactures all the shell of the notebook in china , so the motherboard monitor and case are manufactured there and then adds the other parts at the manufacturing plant nearest to you then ships it out
