Lenovo bets big on education sector, launches new solutions
New Delhi: Bullish on the education sector, computer maker Lenovo India on Tuesday launched new solutions, including laptops and desktops powered by Intel chipsets, and said it expects 20 percent of revenues from the segment.

"The education industry is rapidly evolving to become more student-centric and this is an opportune time for solution providers to leverage this opportunity. Currently, education vertical contributes 15 percent and this would be 20 percent in the next few years," Lenovo India Executive Director (Commercial Business) Rahul Agarwal told reporters here.

The solutions introduced Tuesday include ThinKCentre TINY, a desktop which consumes 40 percent less energy and Lenovo Classmate+. Prices vary depending on the configuration.

"Earlier, most orders would come from private schools than public. But going ahead, we see that changing and more orders from government schools are coming up," he said.

Lenovo India, which occupied the number one PC maker slot, had a total 15.8 percent market share in January-March 2012 period, as per research firm IDC. It had clinched the top spot by bagging an order from state-run Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu (Elcot).

Elcot had issued a tender seeking rate contract for over 9 lakh laptops to be supplied and Lenovo had bagged a major portion of the deal along with other companies, including Acer and HCL.
