33,500 employees, not 3,500, still amazing productivity.
PC giant Lenovo continued its (slow) march toward world domination in the second quarter, as profits climbed a very healthy 19 per cent to $262m and revenue rose seven per cent to $10.5bn, compared with the same period last year.

Thinkpads still quality kit
On my third Thinkpad since Lenovo bought them from Big Blue and I have to say that it is still good quality kit for business travel. I was worried that they would drop this line (or lose the business focus), but so far it is fine. They have just changed their docking connector so I needed a new station with the last one, but as long as they don't do this again for another couple of model upgrades I can't really complain.
