I would only recommend not to buy anything made in China, because of human rights, Tibet, and also quality. Isn't Lenovo a Chinese company? Is it made in China? But I also have stuff made in China because sometimes all the alternatives are made there. Personally I like South Korea and Samsung, give it a try (although they are not perfect).
