    Confucius Old Mainframe Proverb he say "IBM never sell off any product line that is profitable". IBM printers were never much good so not profitable. Thinkpads (manufactured for IBM by Acer) were very good but not profitable enough in the overall company context of 10 years or so ago.

    So could Lenovo make printers and laptops both good and profitable? I never took the risk of finding out :D

    Last year Lenovo brought IBM's server business for n' billion, also they have been for a while the largest PC manufacturer in the world.

    I never said they were any good, but all the ones I have come across do seem to be good.

    Just opened the link provided on my Apple LP and it stated "good your probably not being intercepted"
    However when I searched for 'superfish' loads of certificates came up. Is this OK and if not what do I do

    I have found this on my laptop, anyone know how to get rid of it safely ? Can I just delete it in the list of certificates ?

    Nothing wrong with the basic machines, like any PC you buy it often comes loaded with bloaterware first job is to strip it off. Both our home desktops could do with replacing Lenovos are at the top of the list.
