Dynamite Comes in Small Packages
Lenovo were originally named Legend prior to 2003, but reformed to combine the "Le" from the word "Legend" with "Novo" (meaning "new" in Latin) to make up the current name, Lenovo. This traditional Chinese company, with headquarters in Beijing, China made a name for itself in the western world when it acquired IBMs Personal Computing Division in May of 2005.
Since then, the new Lenovo has evolved to become a world leader in the global PC market, with an annual revenue of approximately $13 billion according to the website. It has service centres in almost every major country in the world, with massive resources in research and development as well as in many other aspects of the 3C arena (computer, communications and consumer electronics). From this heritage, the Lenovo Thinkpad notebooks are formed.
