10 Ways Lenovo Has Evolved in the Last Decade

By Michael Vizard

A lot has changed at Lenovo some 10 years after the company acquired IBM's PC business. Not only have 100 million ThinkPad PCs been shipped, the company has moved aggressively into all categories of servers following its acquisition of the x86 server business from IBM. Lenovo has set some aggressive growth rates for both its PC and server business in 2015 that will almost all have to come at the expense of well-entrenched rivals. To that end, the company is gearing up for the delivery of Windows 10 and has extended the scope of its server lineup in the higher end of the x86 server market. At the other end of the spectrum, Lenovo is also preparing for a major smartphone push that will include new offerings running Windows. Of course, with almost 90 percent of its revenues moving through the channel, it's also clear that Lenovo is going to be more dependent on its partners than ever to meet those 2015 goals.
