Discussion in 'Lenovo' started by kanuk, Jul 9, 2012.
A good read, thought some here might find it interesting.
Great article, thanks for sharing. It's nice to see a company that actually cares - I've used computers from Apple, Dell, and Hewlett-Packard and nothing touches the ThinkPad in terms of quality (in my opinion).
Definitely an interesting behind the scenes read, thanks for sharing. I still hear many people using IBM when they actually mean Lenovo. It's been several years now but in the U.S. it's still an unfamiliar brand name even though they're top three in the world at selling PCs. Tough going to market the brand when it has no name recognition.
it's not just your opinion, lenovo has been ranked top in reliability,
1. Lenovo/IBM (281)
2. Toshiba (190)
3. Samsung (156)
4. Apple (151)
5. Asus (126)
6. HP/Compaq (100)
7. Dell (68)
8. Sony (64)
9. Acer (40)

I was under the impression Lenovo uses Foxconn and another assembly company for ThinkPads.
Not the thinkpads...maybe the ideapads. Pretty sure I read somewhere the upcoming Lenovo smartphone was going to be built by foxconn as well
FWIW, DELL also builds in house. Its actually doesn't matter where or by whom its built, the key is quality control.

"Even today, in the villages we use bicycles or donkey trolleys to ship products," said Yang Yuanqing, 48, chairman and chief executive of Lenovo, who once delivered HP computers on a bicycle. His competitors, he added, "don't know how to do business like that."
I want my thinkpad delivered in a donkey too!
That's not true--at least when it comes to laptops. Last I checked, Dell laptops are made by companies like Compal, Quanta and Arima (Inspiron, latitude and alienware, respectively).
My Thinkpad was built by Wistron, as I recall.
