Nair said that manufacturing laptops in India would give more flexibility as at least two months were needed to ship products from China.

Currently, the entire range of laptops are being shipped from China, he said.

In terms of revenue contribution, the laptops segment was contributing to 85 per cent to 88 per cent of overall PC sales, the rest being desktops, Nair said.

On market growth of PCs, he said that it remained flat in the last quarter.
