Even if you don't have any intelligence info on your computer, I personally suggest supporting the US by boycotting Lenovo. And watch out for Motorola cell phones, also purchased by Lenovo.
After thinking about it, China has no values (kinda like Hillary) and in the future I will try to source my tech equipment from more supportive "capitalist" countries like South Korea, or Singapore or Taiwan since the US makes hardly any tech equipment now.
I just looked at two Western Digital computer hard drives I have and they were both made in Thailand, another capitalist country. My new Netgear Gigabit network switch was made in China (which could have components that access data streams). My new SanDisk SSD drive was made in China. My Anker add on PCIe USB 3.0 card for my tower pc I use for video editing was made in China. However, the issue with Lenovo is they are partially owned by a Chinese government agency, which can lead to Chinese government designed internal circuits which may never be on the add ons I mentioned.
But I know I will now think twice before buying tech made in China (or software made in China or Russia) that has the internal computer chip capability to capture information and "send it home" to China or Russia, or that has software that can communicate with the internet.
Cyberwarfare capability and intention is growing in China, and there is no reason to support a country that does that. READ the article at the above link.
