The world's largest personal computer manufacturer has weighed in on the "PC is dead" debate, sparked by Apple's Tim Cook on Tuesday.
"First of all, (the PC market) is not dead. I mean 260 million units shipped per year, you cannot say it's dead," Lenovo's EMEA President, Eric Cador, told CNBC Thursday.
Cador however acknowledged that there was turbulence in the market, which provided the Chinese PC and smartphone maker with new avenues of opportunity.
"(The PC market) is suffering and in that environment, we see this as an opportunity for us to increase our market share which is what we did again this quarter."
"So it is a tough environment, but we are number one and gaining which is good; and at the same time we've invested heavily in smartphone and in enterprise products, servers, networking and storage."
