Legend Group:
Since it was established, the company has affected the lives of millions of Chinese: It first introduced PCs to households, then promoted PC usage in China by establishing retail shops nationwide.  It also developed the pioneering Legend Chinese Character Card that translated English operating software into Chinese characters, and achieved breakthroughs like PCs with one-button access to the Internet.
By 1994, Legend was trading on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange; four years later, it produced its one-millionth personal computer.  In 2003, Legend changed its brand name to Lenovo, taking the "Le" from Legend, a nod to its heritage, and adding "novo", the Latin word for "new", to reflect the spirit of innovation at the core of the company.  The company name changed from Legend to Lenovo a year later.
