Zhang Hua, vice president of Lenovo Group and general manager of China’s consumer business, responded to some questions recently. Some reporters said that Xiaomi released a similar gaming laptop at almost the same time with Lenovo and they called for Mr. Zhang’s comments. He said
“Lenovo is a 34-year old company. Its first notebook was launched in 1996. It has been 22 years since then. So we have 22 years of research and development to guarantee.” Zhang Hua said.
Zhang Hua said that more companies in the industry are welcome to enter gaming laptop field which is beneficial to the development of the industry. But at the same time, he also stressed that Lenovo’s products are solid and it took not eight, ten, or twenty years of work but more. The research and development leading to the product matter a lot. Does the experience of Lenovo in the laptop industry really give the company an edge over Xiaomi in the same field? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
