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


What is the biggest challenge that Lenovo faces once the IBM and Motorola deals close?

The biggest headache right now is the competition trying to mess us up. Because the deal isn't closed, I can't respond. The other challenge is integrating two teams together. We think we are pretty good at those problems, but those are real problems.

We also want to win back some lost server market share since IBM announced it would sell its x86 server business. We are very confident that once we get ahold of the business, we can reverse IBM's x86 market losses and grow the business significantly. Don't forget we did this with IBM's PC business, we can do it again.
