Chinese computer manufacturer Lenovo computer is reportedly in talks to buy a server computer division of International Business Machines (IBM), says a source close to the issue.
According to sources, Lenovo will spend $ 2.5 billion to 4.5 billion US dollars. As we all know, IBM is one of the players in the business of computer servers running the x86 processor architecture.
Analyst Alberto Moel of Sanford C. Bernstein research institutes & Co. in Hong Kong, argues, this step is possible because it is consistent with the strategy that Lenovo wants to continue to grow and succeed in their new business.
Buying a business IBM will enhance its capabilities. So it would make sense. A similar sentiment was expressed Laurence Balter, an analyst at Oracle Investment Research in Washington. According to him, the business of low-end IBM servers may be "suitable" for Lenovo.
