IDG News Service - Lenovo on Tuesday said it will open its first computer manufacturing plant in the U.S., where it will make laptops, PCs and tablets sold under its Think brand.

Lenovo will open the factory early next year in Whitsett, North Carolina, where it said it will create about 115 manufacturing jobs. It will be Lenovo's first factory in the U.S., supplementing plants in Mexico, Brazil and its home base of China.

This is awesome. No one makes laptops like Lenovo does. NO one. I just wish their gaming series had a bit beefier hardware.

Large asian companies now outsourcing their manufacturing jobs to the west?

Kinda ironic lol.

Slightly lower prices due to lower shipping fees and no import fees? One can only hope.

We just had a meeting with their representatives over at my job and they mentioned this to us. I'm very impressed with what they're doing. Unlike Dell and HP, they're actually engineering stuff again, instead of just putting parts together. This will be great for the corporate environment. We'll be testing some of their desktops, laptops and ThinkServers and see if they can meet our needs so we can get rid of our Dell crap.

Our company has been using them and they have been working very well, I had to call up for an RMA and we got very fast shipment and the guy was really nice to talk to. We rarely ever have to RMA so they're good as far as I'm concerned. This is welcomed with open arms, good for them.

I'm not a fan of their desktops but their laptops are some of the best around especially their thinkpad series. I had an R60 and dropped it from 6feet high on cement on accident and all it did was scuff the lid.

4 posts in and already a troll. Lenovo still has the original Thinkpad engineers working in Japan (carried over from IBM). FWIW they have the best laptop reliability and they've been ranked the best business laptops (by corporate users - not a random blog) for over 16 straight quarters. http://www.laptopmag.com/mobile-life/lenovo-brand-rating-2012.aspx

Not to mention they're the fastest growing laptop maker, and already the 2nd-largest PC maker in the world (just barely behind HP), that's coming from a consumer laptop marketshare in the U.S. of close to zero 4 years back (yes they had Ideapads 4 years ago, no, nobody bought them). Suffice it to say they're doing something right.
