IT Is Entering A Commodity Era Of Computing, IBM Is Not

IBM Logo

Cringely is no fan of IBM. His latest skewering of IBM’s move to sell its server business to Lenovo doesn’t sit too well with him.

IBM needs to embrace the new era of large arrays of inexpensive Intel Servers. IBM needs to adapt its mainframe and mid-range applications to this new platform. The world is moving in this direction. Selling the Intel server business is the exact wrong thing to do for the long term health of IBM.

I’ve done some work with IBM an servers in the past, and they haven’t been so good with supporting new technologies. If this is the foreshadowing of a doomed behemoth, we may be able to mark this moment as the end of a market dominator. Things change, and these big companies are screwed if they can’t change too.

These days, businesses are often opting for a laptop instead of a desktop for the enhanced mobility options afforded. Today, I look at a lower-end PC laptop from Lenovo that should be ideally suited for business.

There are no more results.
