I recall when IBM sold their entire computer division to Lenovo, a Chinese firm that bought the division back in December 2004. Back in 2004 IBM was listed as #3 in the PC market just behind HP and Dell. I remember at the time thinking to myself ‘what the heck is a Lenovo?’ So when I saw a advertisement for a Lenovo laptop in one of the trade magazines I once again said to myself ‘what ever happened to Lenovo?’

A lot has changes during the past 4 years or so. Dell lost their position as king of the hill to HP. Apple has picked up some market share. But now with the recession taking its toll, everyone is feeling the pinch of consumer restraint and tightening their purse strings. But there is more to this than a bad economy.

It is rare to hear anything about Lenovo. It is even more rare to see a review, or am I missing them? In fact I almost completely forgot about the company until I saw the ad.

So my question is this. Does anyone own a Lenovo and what is your opinion of the computer? Let us know.

Comments welcome.
