Personally, I would avoid Lenovo, as it is not just made in Red China, but is actually owned by the Chinese government.
I've been using Lenovo for work for years now, not a darn thing wrong with them. BTW Macs are made in China too, the brand just happens to be owned by an American.

(No, I don't trust the government to automatically do the right thing.)

I never said they weren't. All modern mother boards (including U.S. made Super Micro server boards) are going to have some Red Communist Chinese parts in them.
What makes Lenovo ESPECIALLY bad is that the sale was made NOT to a private corporation, but to the Red Chinese government itself. This is much worse. I will temper the warning somewhat, as I did a quick check. The government divested some of its holdings in Lenovo, and now owns 27%, but uts is still the single largest individual shareholder.
