100 million ThinkPads....and counting

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, February 19, 2015

A hundred million ThinkPad buyers can’t be wrong.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Lenovo has plenty of reason to celebrate its ThinkPad line passing the one hundred million mark in sales.   ThinkPads go back to 1992…before IBM sold its personal computer business to Lenovo.   But some of the same engineers remained on board…and the high standards have remained intact through the years.   Dilip Bhatia is Lenovo’s Vice President of Global PC Design and Marketing….

“Over time, we’ve built over 90 different tests to create this ThinkPad device that has a lot of built in quality and reliability.   So it can manage the accidental water drop or drops from your desk and it will still survive and run well.”    Things that can make it popular not only with corporate folks, but with consumers as well… “Absolutely.  And today people are looking for best in class, a durable device.”

And Lenovo expects interest to grow this year with Microsoft’s release of Windows 10.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
