Another acquisition in the PC business seems to be in the making. According to a report of the Japanese news site nikkei, Fujitsu is contemplating to sell its PC business to the biggest PC manufacturer Lenovo. The deal is expected to be reached within this months, both companies are in talks right now. There are two options according to Nikkei: Either both companies are forming a joint-venture, in which Lenovo has the majority stake, or Lenovo is going to take over Fujitsu´s PC business completely. In the last case, about 2.000 employees are estimated to switch from Fujitsu to Lenovo.

This news comes to no surprise. It was known that Fujitsu wanted to get out of the PC business, as the company looses money with it (96.5 Million US-Dollar last fiscal year). Earlier this year, Fujitsu was in talks with Toshiba and the Sony PC spin-off Vaio. The three companies were planning to merge of their PC business units, but these talks failed in the end. Lately, Fujitsu focused its business on the more profitable business-PC market, but apparently to no avail. 

For Lenovo, this might be an opportunity to keep a distance to the second biggest manufacturer, which is HP. The company appears to have more than enough experience with acquisitions, after all, it did take over IBMs PC division in 2005, and several other companies since then.

I was an ardent reader of Notebookcheck’s laptop reviews even back in school. After writing reviews as a hobby, I then joined Notebookcheck in 2016 and have worked on device reviews and news articles ever since then. My personal interest lies more with laptops than smartphones, with business laptops being the most interesting category for me. Technology should make our lives and work easier and good laptops are an essential tool for that to happen. This is why laptop reviews are not just my work but are also my passion.
