Economic effects as well
This could have major economic impacts beyond the obvious security ones. If true, it could change the way the world has to manufacture and buy computers if the country that is responsible for 90% of computer hardware is doing this. That's a major shift in manufacturing that we are not prepared for!

Made in China - it's cheaper
For years, American manufacturing firms have let Chinese workers build a wide range of products, consumer and tech intensive and for those years we have freely given them our technology to replicate, study and use.  Every laptop that went to the old Olympic game came back with malware.  Every one.  Nobody talks of that nor the blatant opportunity to just COPY what we give them.  And for this we are now surprised!!!   They are NOT friendly to us - get that!!!   Neither Russia and host of other countries.  This tech achievement is impressive in scope but should have been expected all along.   We are blind on many things.
