Since 2013, Lenovo pulled ahead of HP to become the world’s #1 PC company, and perhaps surprisingly, the world’s #3 smartphone company. Lenovo acquired IBM’s PC hardware division in 2005 and in 2014 announced the acquisition of IBM’s server hardware division. Lenovo has been the fastest-growing PC company for over 4 years.
Lenovo has a variety of devices available to fit virtually any application — part of what they call the “PC+” world, where people use both PCs and a range of smart devices. They have innovated a number of new product categories to enhance the customer experience and stand out from the competition.
Lenovo’s famous ThinkPad lineup shows its IBM DNA, and is where the quality engineering shines the most. Although ThinkPad notebooks have had a reputation of being solidly built for years, Lenovo recently submitted their devices for gruelling MIL-SPEC tests and can now officially designate them as “semi-rugged”. They have been used on the International Space Station since 1998. ThinkPad notebooks feature a magnesium alloy internal roll cage to protect from shocks, rolls and crashes, and even a spill-resistant keyboard that funnels liquid away from vulnerable components. Not ready for Windows 8? No problem — Think Series devices come with Windows 7 Pro preinstalled, along with a Windows 8 license if and when you are ready to upgrade.
At just 2.83 Lbs and 0.7″ thin, the world’s thinnest and lightest 14″ Ultrabook achieves its title by using light and strong Carbon Fiber. Designed for the “Road Warrior” or discerning traveler, it features a glass touch-screen with better-than-HD resolution, a 9 hour battery that charges 80% in just 30 minutes, and biometric security.
Lenovo’s ThinkCentre lineup is well suited for any business environment, even with space constraints. In 2011, one study showed that ThinkCentres on average fail 28% less than the competition, and lasts 3X longer than the industry standard (Gartner Report: “Benchmarking PC Hardware Reliability”). They feature tool-less design — easy access to the hard disk and memory for effortless upgrades.
Lenovo ThinkServer offers quality and reliability. Their range of rack and tower servers, options, and services is ideal for a variety of customers and use cases ranging from line-of-business applications in smaller businesses, to full data processing needs in mid-sized firms, to distributed computing deployments in the largest of enterprises.
McLean IT has partnered with Lenovo to bring high quality mobile and desktop products to businesses in Greater Victoria. Their proven product build quality, easy maintenance, and great warranty support make them the best candidate for deployment in businesses of any size. Their amazing MTBF statistics mean a lower TCO (total cost of ownership) over the lifetime of the devices.
