IBM, Lenovo PC Deal Passes U.S. Review

Well, it appears that the IBM-Levanto deal just got approved by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). Can't say I'm too happy about this one. I really like the Thinkpad and while it's obviously too early to say that the quality of them will go down, I'd guess the amount of R&D and refinement that goes into them on a long term basis seriously declines. I'd also guess that my next laptop will be an Apple running Linux, but like I said we'll see.
