Bajarin on Lenovo

China: A Tech Powerhouse?: China in Another Light – Columns by PC Magazine

While Dell and HP have solid ties to the Chinese market in terms of products and even strong local presence, one can potentially see that Lenovo’s purchase of the IBM PC group may turn out to be one of the most important business deals of this century. Not only has Lenovo been able to extend its brand into the U.S. through this acquisition, but there is a distinct possibility that it could eventually emerge as the number one world-wide technology company during this century. Some top tech execs I talked to here believe that Lenovo will use its Chinese power base to leverage not only its manufacturing capabilities but also its pool of engineering talent and marketing opportunities to eclipse its current global competitors. Interestingly, when the Lenovo/IBM deal was first announced, I thought that the longtime IBM execs were somewhat crazy to move over to Lenovo. Now it looks as if they understood this Chinese connection better than most of us.”
