Congratulations to Lenovo and IBM for hitting an impressive milestone: 100,000,000 (1.0 x 10^8) ThinkPads have been sold since the IBM ThinkPad 700 series debuted in 1992. North Carolina's The News & Reporter wrote a wonderful article on the achievement that you can find here. Even if you are not a Lenovo fan boy, you must commend them both their achievement and continuing to invest in the American economy (that one makes me particularly proud). I would like to point out that though Lenovo is frequently referred to as a Chinese company, it is a global company.
"The world headquarters for the ThinkPad brand is in Morrisville, which serves as a Lenovo headquarters as well. Lenovo has about 3,500 workers in Morrisville.Lenovo is a Chinese company, so it’s ironic that ThinkPad laptops and ThinkCentre desktops are among the few PCs being made in America today. Those devices also are produced in Mexico and China."
