Lenovo is an international provider of computers for both personal and business use. Founded in 1984 in a guard shack in Beijing, Lenovo grew to become China’s leading PC company, and then acquired IBM’s Personal Computing Division, the creators of the first personal computer.
Its been more than a decade since IBM stopped making ThinkPad laptops, yet you’re still likely to see them in the halls of industry, thanks to Lenovo. The company formerly known as Legend Computers of Beijing, China, still produces the well-regarded laptop line, with its beloved AccuType keyboard, but it’s not content to rest on its laurels. Rather, it continues to innovate with radical designs like the Yoga line.
Then there are those hybrid systems, which can function as both laptops and tablets. The company’s Flex and Yoga laptops pioneered the 2-in-1 convertible laptop movement. Yoga laptops have the ability to flip into four positions: conventional Laptop mode, video-viewing Stand mode, game-playing Tent mode, and reading-oriented Tablet mode. If you think you’re more likely to want to use a tablet, check out one of the company’s Miix models. But don’t worry: The keyboards that come with these are often almost as good as the tried-and-true AccuType.
Lenovo delivers high-quality, secure products and services covers PCs (including the legendary Think and multimode YOGA brands), workstations, servers, storage, smart TVs and a family of mobile products like smartphones (including the Motorola brand), tablets and apps.
