Lenovo Exec Says Naysayers Attacking IBM x86 Deal Are 'Dreaming'

How do you respond to people like Meg Whitman, who promise to pounce on "instability" in Lenovo and IBM's x86 server business?

To be frank, I think competition is dreaming that we aren't going to have success here and is trying to transfer that dream to the marketplace. It's a dream.

We'll be there and we are going to execute really well.

This deal is a win-win. We will be introducing a lot of Lenovo partners to IBM. We will bring new business opportunities to IBM partners as well. I know there is some press out there that says, "I'm not too sure." In reality, after this deal is consummated, Lenovo and IBM partners will see a lot of incremental opportunities. There is huge upside for everybody here, and I'm sure once we work through it everybody will see that.
