While the United States is doing its best to purge Huawei from the country, it seems to be happy to have Lenovo. The latter hosted a grand opening ceremony attended by North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory at its first American plant in Whitsett.
Apparently, the move is regarded as the “return of PC making to the United States". Indeed, Lenovo adds 115 new manufacturing jobs in North Carolina and is on track to fully ramp up production by the end of this month. The new 240,000-square-foot facility provides the company with logistics, customer solutions, national returns centre, and manufacturing production.
The new Lenovo plant will manufacture such products as ThinkCentre M92p Tiny desktop, ThinkPad Tablet 2, ThinkPad Helix convertible Ultrabook, and others. The new manufacturing line arms the company with the capability to deliver products with greater efficiency, along with offering an expanded and more valuable set of PC-related services. The list of such services includes custom product configurations, imaging, asset tagging and bundling of products.
As you can see, Governor Pat McCrory doesn’t share the America’s fear of Chinese companies. Instead, he can see that the tech giant’s operations are estimated to positively increase state output by over $1 billion. In addition, McCrory doesn’t to care about Lenovo putting any backdoors into hardware which could allow American computers to be controlled by China or any other excuses that are being touted in the United States at the moment.
The Governor said that he was proud to have Lenovo in his state as it kept investing in North Carolina, bringing jobs to the Greensboro area and providing a foundation for future economic growth in the state.

|And there was much rejoicing!!|
The best job I ever had was fixing mother boards so I welcome a return of real jobs to US soil!
I always used to build my own, but now you can buy better and cheaper off the shelf.
Nearly 2 years ago I bought a 3.4 GHz intel based desktop for $600, at the time the CPU chip would have set me back about $400. Add a case, PSU, mother board, DVD drive and HDD, you are looking at around $800.

|"McCrory doesn’t to care about Lenovo putting any backdoors into hardware which could allow American computers to be controlled by China" This makes no sense the Chinese could just as well do the same with all the computers that are made in China. The U.S. buys Lenovo computers from China everyday. I would think if they did such a thing it would be easier to do it to the computers not made in the U.S.|

NOT if you live in an Asian country. BY far cheaper to build your own rig.
Cost alone to have said shelf computer shipped to the states out weighs price to build your own.

|If you build your own with the same generic parts as manufactures do then it would be cheaper. But usually custom builds cost a little more at first because we choose better quality power supplies cases ect. But once you have your first custom its way cheaper because you can keep using the same case and dvd-rom and power supply for future builds. Then you just need to buy MB, memory and CPU. One of the most costly thing on a custom is the OS ($129? for Win7) but we all no what that cost at ET.|
|its a toss up. but except for the monitor, it is usually cheaper to build it yourself.|
buy like the only time i did buy a system, i got a great flat panel with the system and was like only paying for just the monitor or just the pc, so that worked out great, and the monitor is still working perfectly after 11 years but i did retire the pc last year.
it still works, but not used as much.
