“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?

    What gives the Lenovo the real advantage is a distribution & service network it has over Xiaomi and when it comes to relatively expensive laptops that means a lot. 20+ years of experience doesn’t mean much. A reminder to the Zhang Hua how Lenovo managed to brake free only after purchasing IBM laptop lineups less than 10 years ago and how those lineups still represent their breed & water.

    I’m just in doubt getting a mi gaming laptop because of the warranty but build quality is pretty good.

    in the other parts of world, the lenovo laptop is called y530, and in germany the i7 1050ti version costs 1100€
