While the rest of the PC industry faltered in Q1, both Lenovo and ASUS increased their U.S. sales. It’s no accident that the two vendors most known for innovative, high-quality hardware are the ones who are succeeding.
Lenovo has long been known for its impressive, tactile keyboards and durable chassis. The Chinese company also isn’t afraid to take a risk and build something completely new and exciting like the IdeaPad Yoga, which is the first notebook with a screen that bends back 360 degrees. ASUS has even more original designs, from the dual-screened Taichi to the ASUS Zenbook UX31A and its gorgeous 1080p display.
Companies that do nothing more than churn out gray hubs of molten plastic with flexy keyboards and washed out screens are the ones who are losing. Why buy another cheap plastic computer to replace your 2010-era cheap plastic computer?
