reports on the phenomenal rise of China's No. 1 PC seller
in Protect And Attack: Lenovo's New Strategy.
A rave like the following is worth checking out:
"Stateside, Lenovo is best known as the outfit that came out of nowhere to buy IBM's PC division and ThinkPad brand in 2005....
Lenovo is a company the likes of which we've never seen. It is a product of Communist China (the government still owns 36% of its parent, Legend Holdings).... Lenovo is redefining "Made in China," producing the industry's highest-quality machines; it ranked No. 1 in the 2011 Computer Reliability Report, ahead of Apple and HP...." [emphasis added]The Wikipedia has the following graph at Market share of leading PC vendors:
|Rank||2006 ||2007 ||2008 ||2009 ||2010 ||2011 |
In 2009 Lenovo had a global PC market share of 11.2% less than HP, in 2010 a market share of 8.2% less than than HP and in 2011 a market share of 4.2% less than HP, so that if that furious trend continues, Lenovo should reach a global top market share early in the year 2013, if not sooner.
Lenovo can send us one of their new PCs or notebooks for review at any time. We will try it out and compare it to the Lenovo we already have, the desktop B510 IdeaCentre, a terrific desktop PC at an unbeatable price.
This is not an ad. It is our honest opinion.
