Lenovo's chief executive believes the PC is still relevant, but consumers want systems to deliver more than basic functionality.
"We don't live in a post-PC world," Yuanqing Yang told Reuters. "We are entering the PC-plus era." He added that PCs in today's age can't be boxes that come with the same design and is just utilized for computing. He believes that PCs must incorporate extra features.
Yang pointed towards Lenovo's Yoga convertible PC line that allows users to convert their computer into a tablet. During CES, the company announced a Windows 8 Touch Portable Monitor and the Yoga 11S laptop.
Despite Yang's optimism pertaining to the PC market, global tablet shipments are expected to best notebooks during 2013. During the October of 2012, tablet display shipments managed to surpass those of notebooks.
