I believe the X Server range would be a major coup for Lenovo, but will they pay too much for it?
Let's look back at when Lenovo acquired IBM's desktop and laptop business, sales declined greatly due to the U.S. government's "mistrust" of all things Mainland China and looking to Dell and HP for desktop and laptops
The legendary ThinkPad was once a major seller within branches of the U.S. government and once the marque was sold, it was no longer considered an option
Should Lenovo get its paws on the X Server range, would they experience the same declining sales within their newly acquired server range?
It's a calculated risk, pay too much and not get the sales figures, or pay an acceptable price and hope you can morph the Lenovo branded X Server range into something sellable, although the product would sell volumes in China, how would it fair in the rest of the [Western] market?
Interesting times are upon us and should Lenovo end up owning the X Server range, the "big three" (IBM/HP/Dell) could end up becoming the "Surviving two", as in Dell & HP
