The years old Lenovo vs. Apple build quality dual has seen the latter steam ahead, but this is not the case anymore. This is because Lenovo has managed to steam ahead to become the third best company in terms of computer sales in the US.
Apple has managed to stay ahead for a few years because of its intensive growth in computer sales, but Lenovo has done a better job in the fourth fiscal quarter that ended on March 31st, 2014.
One of the reasons for this is due to the fact that Lenovo has expanded its ThinkPad line, although they have been taking strides in its mobile market as well.
Lenovo now holds the number three spot in the US, which is surely a bitter pill for Apple to swallow. However, with Apple focusing more on its mobile market rather than computers, it was only a matter of time before someone like Lenovo overtook them.
However, what this does tell us is that Lenovo has improved on its build quality; otherwise more people would have chosen Apple products instead. And, while they still might not be built as good as Apple computers, it is the fine balance of pricing and build quality that has helped to improve overall sales.
