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.

I don't even know how this stuff makes sense in your own head. Transferring money out of the American economy to China is good because the money saved can then be spent inside the American economy??

American laptop - $400
Chinese laptop - $200

I buy the Chinese laptop and I have $200 left over to spend elsewhere to boost the US economy. Benefit to US economy is potentially $200, benefit to China is $200. That is assuming you take the leftover $200 and buy American instead of saving it. More likely is you'll spend the remaining $200 on another Chinese gadget or just save it. The real net benefit here to the US economy will be closer to $0.

I buy the American laptop and have $0 left over. Benefit to US economy is $390, benefit to China is $10.

How did this make sense in your head? You somehow managed to convince yourself that buying from China is a benefit to the US economy. Astounding.

I don't live in the USA or China.
So whoever gives me the best price for what I need, wins.

You're a fucktard, you know that?
