Changes are coming. You’re making sure your organization is prepared for the future. And so is Lenovo. They’re ready to help you and your organization navigate the upcoming Windows® XP migration. And their flexible product offerings are designed to showcase the best that Windows® 8 and touch computing have to offer.

Lenovo is also the first computer company to defy the industry trend of offshore manufacturing. In 2008, they brought production back to the USA, opening an assembly center in Whitsett, NC.

Lenovo has earned a reputation for innovation, quality and reliability by providing the best solutions for enterprise companies and small businesses alike. Take a look at how their technology can help your organization evolve.


After Windows® XP reaches its end of support on April 8, 2014, no software, security, hotfixes or free assisted-support options will be available.

You know what this means: Your organization may be vulnerable to malware and security breaches if you don’t migrate to a new OS.
