The end of an era, my friends. The IBM Thinkpad becomes the Lenovo Thinkpad, among other changes.
"IBM sold its personal computing division to Chinese manufacturer Lenovo (previously called Legend) in 2005, divesting itself of a product line they could not make a profit from. After this weeks announcement that the IBM brand will be dropped, the brand that arguably launched the whole PC more will be consigned to history."
"By making substantial progress on all of our critical priorities over the past few quarters, we’re now a stronger, healthier company," Amelio said. "One important sign of this progress is our decision to completely transition our Think products from the IBM brand to the Lenovo brand two years earlier than planned."
