Thailand hard drive production under water – 40% of world’s supply

Thailand Hard Drive factories are Flooded!

Due to severe flooding in Thailand, many computer manufacturers are expecting to be out of hard drives within 2 weeks and have severe shortages for the next 6 months. As a result, Thailand hard drive prices have gone up 200% – 300% in the last 2 weeks and computer prices are expected to follow along with a severely reduced supply.
