Laptops, desktops, servers, cloud computing, workstations, accessories, you name it; this is one of the most popular names in computing.
Many people have no idea that this company has been around for over two decades. The name Lenovo came into existence as recent as 2004 but the company existed since 1984. It was the year of the Rat, a guard house and a measly 25,000 RMB which was under US$11,000 when Legend Holdings came into existence. The company was later incorporated in Hong Kong then later went on to become the number one PC company in China.
Do you remember IBM? Do you know what happened to IBM? Well don’t worry, IBM is still around just under a different name as Lenovo also acquired that company in 2005.
Standing tall Lenovo is now in the number two spot fro leading PC vendors, I can only guess who’s number one. Number two ain’t so bad considering they are a twenty one billion dollar company with offices in over 60 countries and serves over 160 countries world wise. Talking about service, where would the company be without the 26,000+ employees they have.

The price has me really thinking that my next laptop should be a ThinkPad60 because of all the laptops now o the market the price is pretty comfortable.
