Lenovo’s Commitment to Quality (and our NVMe SSDs)

Thin and light notebooks and tablets keep getting faster, more powerful and more essential in our everyday lives, particularly the flagship models. This is not just because technology is continuing to improve, but because the leadership at many of the major laptop manufacturers insists on bringing their customers greater value and the finest technology.

A compelling case in point is the speed with which Lenovo’s Personal Computing Group and ThinkPad Team have moved to bring the most innovative storage technology to the premium laptop market – NVMe PCIe solid state drives. Lenovo has true visionaries who share responsibility for the company’s PC business including the ThinkPad line.  I’m not just talking about their wisdom in moving quickly to NVMe SSD technology, but rather in their overall vision for creating the best possible ThinkPad products.  There’s no mistaking the commitment to quality at Lenovo where, as Senior Vice President Johnson Jia (Lenovo PC Business Group) puts it, there is “a relentless pursuit of innovation.”  Earlier this month, Lenovo launched its ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook, ThinkPad X1 Tablet and ThinkPad X1 Yoga convertible notebook/tablet to a great deal of fanfare and praise.  In fact, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 family reportedly was the recipient of more than two dozen honors during CES 2016. Lenovo’s Dilip Bhatia, vice president, PC and Enterprise Group Marketing and User Experience, said, “today’s progressive customers … continually seek technology that will help them push the boundaries of digital excellence.” This is the very audience at which Lenovo is aiming its flagship ultrabooks, tablets and convertibles.

At the heart of each new ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook, X1 Tablet, X1 Yoga convertible and ThinkCentre X1 all-in-one, one of our market-leading m.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs provides the fast boot times, high capacity storage and quality performance that knowledgeable consumers and smart businesses demand in their computing devices. These Samsung SSDs come in densities of up to 1TB, with storage that’s four times faster than a standard SATA SSD, and very high quality production standards.  The Samsung SM951 also reduces latency more than three times compared to SATA SSDs. Storage today just doesn’t get any better than this.

We’re delighted and proud to collaborate with Lenovo in ensuring our SSDs enhance the value that their customers enjoy from the Lenovo family of thin and light PC’s and tablets.

Let us know what you think of the new Lenovo X1 family, as well as the Samsung SM951 NVMe SSDs that are having a clear impact on the state-of-the-art ThinkPad X1 line-up.
