Hardware, Embedded Systems Something truly interesting is currently happening in the PC space. Ask any random internet commenter how the PC market is doing, and I'm pretty sure you're going to get something along the lines of 'everybody but Apple is failing'. Turns out this isn't the case - Lenovo has just become the world's largest PC and laptop vendor, after three years of steady growth in sales and profits. "During the second fiscal quarter, Lenovo's worldwide PC shipments grew 10.3 percent, in a difficult market that was down eight percent year-over-year, the 14th quarter in a row that the company has grown faster than the PC industry as a whole. In this challenging environment, Lenovo achieved its highest-ever worldwide market share of 15.6 percent, gaining share points in every geography, every product category in which it competes, and in every respective customer segment." Very impressive.

It's a Z565, she got it in November 2010. A quick search shows that the current version is likely the Z575; very similar design and a modest bump in specs.

She tends to get about two or three hours of battery life when she brings it to my house. Performance wise it's not quite on par with my quad-core i5 system at work, but it's no slouch either. The built in graphics are good enough for casual gaming, and for what she does with it (internet and watching movies/TV via HDMI out to her TV) it's overkill.
