No. 13: Lenovo
This client device manufacturer has set its sights on a wider reach with its recent acquisition of German PC company Medion and its strategic partnership with NEC Japan. Jumping on the tablet craze, Lenovo was one of the first vendors to come out with a tablet and it has refreshed its flagship ThinkPad line. Last month Lenovo overtook Dell as the second largest worldwide PC maker, according to IDC and credits its success to its channel-first initiatives.
