Lenovo continues to defy the downward trending market with big gains year-over-year.

For the past year, Lenovo has been the king of the global PC market, displacing longtime leaders Hewlett-Packard and Dell. Lenovo is continuing its dominance for its fiscal 2014 period (which ended in March), holding on to its No. 1 global ranking. It recorded five percent year-over-year grown in PC shipments while the overall market declined by eight percent.
Lenovo also made significant inroads in the U.S. market, where HP and Dell are still in first and second place. Lenovo’s strengthened PC lineup allowed it to vault past Apple to claim the third place spot for its fiscal fourth quarter (January through March 2014).
“The record sales and profits that we delivered last year prove that Lenovo can grow and deliver its commitments, no matter the market conditions,” said Lenovo Chairman and CEO Yuanqing Yang. “Not only did we strengthen our leading position in PCs, but we gained three points in tablets by quadrupling sales volume and became the fastest growing major smartphone company in the world.”

Speaking of smartphones, Lenovo sold 50 million smartphones for fiscal 2014, enough to make it the world’s fourth largest smartphone marker – it is currently the second largest smartphone maker in China. This tally will only grow once Lenovo adds in its recent acquisition of Motorola Mobility from Google.
As for its financial performance during fiscal 2014, Lenovo saw a 14 percent increase year-over-year (YOY) in revenue to $38.7 billion, a 27 percent increase YOY in full-year pre-tax income to $1.01 billion, and a 29 percent increase in full year earnings to $817 million.
“The record sales and profits that we delivered last year prove that Lenovo can grow and deliver its commitments, no matter the market conditions,” said Lenovo in a statement.

What company is manufacturing PCs in the US right now. HP, Dell, all the big names subcontract everything to China and just sell the brand.

A few models of Macs are 'made' in the US.

Heck, a few models of ThinkPads are 'made' in the US.

So... how does that help?

They are made in China, a few are "configured" in the US and labelled "assembled" in the US... What that means is it's all made in China and when someone orders it with a 4tb hard drive and 8gb RAM and a particular video card, they put in the hard drive,RAM and VC and ship it. "Assembled in the USA" Weeeehaaaw! - BTW, the VC and RAM was mad in China and the hard drive likely either Thailand, Malaysia, or China.

The fact is the US is way deep into it's process of outsourcing low paying assembly jobs. It started long ago, and life wont end over it. Like many others have said, you cant buy a PC built in the US. Not because of your patriotism, its just because the options aren't there.
