I've been an admirer of Lenovo ever since they purchased IBM's PC business. They have been quietly moving up the rankings in the PC industry while other companies such as HP and Dell are publicly struggling. I've also been very happy with my company-issued Lenovo laptop. Definitely a company to keep an eye on.

I think that is a classic strategy, underdogs tend to have a lot of hunger and a passion to succeed than the favorites who sometimes get complacent...

It also a mutaually beneficial arrangement that advances both their causes.

It chose the underdog for both deals.

@Jim, thanks for the post.  What will lenovo gain by choosing the underdog for both the deals ? Isn't it risky strategy because we all know Intel has tried many times to enter the mobile market but has failed badly.
