Apple delays MacBook Pro 17

Lenovo’s American CEO steps down, Chinese leadership returns
Thomas Ricker comments on Lenovo’s most recent CEO leadership change.

“After leaving Dell to become chief executive of Lenovo, Bill Amelio is stepping down from his post as CEO. Amelio joined Lenovo to help with the integration of IBM’s PC business. The US executive has been replaced by Lenovo’s Chairman Yang Yuanqing who will continue to live and work from Lenovo’s North Carolina office. The…changes are meant to accelerate Lenovo’s strategy to dominate China’s PC market, grow its business into emerging markets (specifically India and Russia), and expand upon its burgeoning sales to individual consumers. Seems like a reasonable move to us.”
