Some PCs are assembled in the U.S., but not many. This includes those from Lenovo, the China-based firm that runs a factory in North Carolina. Apple operates a Mac Pro assembly plant in Austin, but makes many of its other products overseas.
Lenovo and Apple may have an edge in selling PCs to the U.S., under President Donald Trump’s recently signed “Hire American, Buy American” executive order signed this week, say analysts.
All PCs are made with components sourced globally, but vendors that assemble products in the U.S. may gain preference. Trump’s executive order doesn’t spell out how “buying American” will work for IT suppliers — if it happens at all.
