Lightform products are designed in San Francisco, USA, and manufactured in Shenzhen, China. Due to the recent tariffs, there are fees on most goods shipped to the USA from China (where 90% of computers are made). Since this only affects our USA orders, we are including the tariff in the USA pricing. We’ve only included the direct cost of the tariff without any markup. If you want to discuss, feel free to contact support or your congressional representatives.
