With this heavy payload and an extensive experience in hardware Lenovo is confident enough to beat even Microsoft, as Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing said : “Although we don’t like Microsoft providing hardware,for us, it just adds one more competitor.”  and furthermore “We are still confident that we are providing much better hardware than our competitors including Microsoft.”
Lenovo is not the only company have mixed feelings about Microsoft jumping into the hardware business. Acer also addressed its mild reservations. Though Microsoft already expected some raised eyebrows on this new venture. And to its benefit Microsoft isn’t new in manufacturing hardware with Xbox 360 running an excellent show in the market.
