    I was browsing around looking for a laptop and was looking at the Lenovo page for they Yoga series and the videos on there are absolutely BRILLIANT. This is exactly the style of marketing that appeals to the "younger" generation and something BlackBerry needs. Suddenly I wish Lenovo at least was in a partnership with BlackBerry.

    Link to product page:
    Convertible Ultrabook Laptop & Tablet | Ideapad Yoga 13 with Windows 8 | Lenovo (US)

    Video 6/24 is what I am talking about but the rest is quite good too.

    EDIT: I guess the point is that showing people having a good time using your product is really powerful.

    Pretty sure I'm buying one... maybe even two of those now. Those commercials are awesome! "For those that do". I kinda feel like that's sort of "our thing" here at BlackBerry so I'm all about it. Great find. Thanks for sharing!

    Same here. Oh that was good.

    As for the Lenovo "For those that do" its exactly in line with BlackBerry. It left me as awed as one BlackBerry fan ad except that this Lenovo ad featured the product for the ENTIRE time which is rather remarkable. The other thing is notice that they only really had one "feature" to show off and they made multiple long ads showing it. Despite not talking or showing all to much of the products capability it seems awesome.

    EDIT: Ooooh the orange one looks so good. How about some orange Z's and Q's?

    That was actually an awesome ad. The music was perfect for the ad.

    Sort of update sort of question for you but I heard that it actually has issues with wifi. LOTS of people in Lenovo forums with s?w or not working wifi. I put off my purchase for the year partially because of this.

    Edit: Doesn't change the fact that the marketing was brilliant.

    ThinkPad T400 for this year. It chugs along quite admirably for a four year old computer.

    +1 Lenovo

    Soo cool but only problem is it's running Win8 and looks heavy and bulky.

    That's the second marketing video I see from lenovo and I love it. The first one I saw was on cable TV, a very clever way to announce their home support service "lenovo em casa" (lenovo in your house or something :P)

    If China purchased Blackberry, it would be the end of Blackberry. China is not stupid and they also know this.
