Lenovo buys IBM PC division


— 2:33 AM on December 8, 2004

Industry giant IBM has sold its PC division to Lenovo, China's largest IT enterprise:

The two companies plan to form a complex joint venture that would make Lenovo the third-largest PC maker in the world, behind Dell and Hewlett-Packard, but still give IBM a hand in the PC business. The acquisition is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2005.
Lenovo was previously the world's ninth-largest PC maker with only 0.1% greater market share than Apple Computer.
