The ThinkPad line of laptop computers was originally sold by IBM and is known for their boxy black design, which was originally modeled after a traditional Japanese lunchbox. Since early 2005, ThinkPad’s have been sold by Lenovo, which purchased the IBM personal computer division in the same year. Known for their reliability, quality, durability, and performance, ThinkPad’s are popular with businesses, schools, and individual users.

The ThinkPad has also been used in space, and is the only laptop certified for use on the International Space Station

The Idea Pad line of consumer-oriented laptop computers was released in January of 2008. The Idea Pad is entirely the result of Lenovo’s own research and development. Unlike the ThinkPad line of notebooks its design and brand were not inherited from IBM. The Idea Pad design marked a deviation from the business-oriented ThinkPad laptops, towards a more consumer-focuses look and feel. Among these changes were the inclusion of a glossy screen and the omission of the traditional ThinkPad Track Point. Notebook Review said the keyboard had a ‘’distinctive ThinkPad feel’ and ‘the touchpad and touchpad buttons were smooth and responsive.’

In the second quarter of 2011, Lenovo was the third largest vendor of personal computers in the world. For the year ending with third quarter 2010, its market share increased from 8.6 percent to 10.4 percent. The company is the largest seller of PCs in China, with a 28.6% share of the China market, according to research firm IDC in July, 2009. It reported annual sales of $14.9 billion for the fiscal year ending 2008/2009 (ending March 31, 2009).

During the first quarter of 2011 Lenovo controlled 31.7% of the Chinese personal computer market when measured by units sold. Lenovo reported a 98.3 percent rise in profit to $108.8 million during the first quarter of 2011, up from $54.86 million during the same quarter of the previous year. Lenovo shipped 10.28 million personal computers in the first quarter of 2011.

In May 2011, Lenovo reported fourth-quarter earnings of $42 million on sales of $4.88 billion. Wall Street was expecting revenue of $5.08 billion, according to Thomson Reuters

It’s easier to do it in those countries compared with mature markets.

When Legend launched its own branded personal computer in 1990, it already had a strong distribution network in place. With that distribution network and prices 30% below those of foreign companies such as Hewlett Packard, Legend grabbed the lead in China’s computer market late 1996 and has held it ever since. Legend has been able to accomplish this buy underpricing foreign competitors while providing quality and support unavailable from local competitors.
