Lenovo launches a refreshed range of ThinkPad Edge, Lenovo Essential and ThinkPad notebook personal computers (PCs) powered by the new Intel 3rd generation processors and packed with features to boost business productivity, targeting local small and medium business (SMB) segment.
Based on the latest IDC data, Lenovo has captured the number 2 spot in the global PC market after achieving 12 consecutive quarters (3 years) of growth. The company is executing its “protect and attack” growth strategy to capture global PC market leadership. While protecting its position in the large enterprise market where it already has a stronghold owing it to its ThinkPad legacy, Lenovo is attacking the SMB market.
Vicky Agorrilla, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines said: “We recognize that SMBs are continuing to drive growth for the country despite concerns about dark clouds looming on the economic horizon. It’s important that these businesses are empowered and equipped with the right hardware to help them remain competitive and profitable. We have refreshed our SMB-oriented PCs as well as recently increased the number of retail customer experience points, demonstrating our commitment towards being the right technology partner for SMBs.”
