We’ve created the new Lenovo Z41, Z51 and IdeaPad 100 laptops specifically for customers who want simple and functional design. But because our customers are diverse, so our products are not ‘one size fits all’ either. Our three new laptops offer customers the choice to select the one that’s right for them – two specialized for multimedia and one all-rounder,” said Mr. BAI Peng, vice president and general manager, Lenovo Notebook Business Unit, PC Group.
