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.

Day job provides me with a T520. It's an okay laptop, as PC's go. It's robust and reliable up to a point. It's certainly better than any Dell I've ever been forced to use.

You can still pry my 2007 Black plastic MacBook from my cold dead hands though. God, how I love that laptop and God, how much more life it still has in it!!

If I didn't need the power, I would still be using my ol' T42. 7 years in service and still going strong.

TBH, MacBook has a 2GHz Core2Duo and 4GB RAM, it's still as speedy as a daily driver (including using various dev tools and Eclipse based IDE's.) It just fails at stuff like games and video encoding (though Braid is running fine, so I'm happy with that.)
