Lenovo moves production of some laptops and tablets to North Carolina
The second-largest PC maker in the world, China-based Lenovo, announced earlier in October that it would begin building its ThinkPad Tablets and Laptops at a factory in North Carolina.
While the decision is laudable because it will create roughly 115 manufacturing job in the U.S., it's worth noting that many of the components within the computers and tablets will have been made in places outside the United States.
That said, this new development in the domestic American manufacturing of computers and tablets raises a question: will Apple ever move its manufacturing (or some components of it) to the United States. As we've mentioned before there's blame to go around for Apple's overseas production, but it's not an impossibility.
