Lenovo, the proposed new Chinese owner of IBM's desktop computer and laptop business, will change the name of the "IBM ThinkPad", the company said at PC Forum. The new name will likely be "ThinkPad" or "Lenovo ThinkPad."
The name change will become a test of the public's preparedness to accept Lenovo as the successor of IBM as a PC and laptop manufacturer. Analysts have warned that users will shun the brand because it doesn't have IBM's image of reliability and trustworthiness.
