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.

To be fair, Dell's Latitude range has always been pretty solid.

But their consumer stuff has always been shit.


I was just talking about the consumer-class machines (I should have been clearer about that), I haven't really dealt with their business-class stuff. Their consumer-class desktops are some of my least-favourite machines to do service work on - things that should be simple always turn into a puzzle (like figuring out how to take the case off, or remove a drive).

They do make nice servers though, at least the 2 or 3 models that I've worked on.
