Lenovo is a Chinese computer company that makes computers, laptops, tablets, and other devices.

Lenovo was founded in Beijing in 1984 as Legend and was incorporated in Hong Kong in 1988. Lenovo acquired IBM's personal computer business in 2005 and agreed to acquire its Intel-based server business in 2014. In January 2014, Lenovo agreed to acquire the mobile phone handset maker Motorola Mobility from Google, and in October 2014 the deal was finalized.


"Lenovo" is a portmanteau word of "Le-" (from Legend) and "novo", Latin ablative for "new". The Chinese name (simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: ; pinyin: liánxiǎng) means "association" (as in "word association") or "connected thinking".
