Chief Executive Michael Dell said his namesake company is no longer a personal computer company and has transformed itself into a business that sells services and products to corporations, a lucrative market that he said is worth $3 trillion."

The main reason is demographics and the Lenovo's excellent marketing. They are the top vendor in the world’s leading market, China. And growing strong in countries like Brazil and slowly climbing the brand ladder to the top.
They are there and marketing in big countries where people are buying their first PC device and not secondary devices.
