Lenovo 3000 was a line of low-priced notebook and desktop computers designed by Lenovo Group targeting small businesses and individuals. It was replaced with the IdeaCentre and IdeaPad brands.

Background[edit]

The Lenovo 3000 series marked the debut of Lenovo branded products outside of China. First showcased in New York City on 23 February 2006, the line was intended to boost Lenovo's competitiveness internationally against rival brands like Dell and Hewlett-Packard.[1] In addition, the 3000 series gave the company an independent identity: an identity separate from the Thinkpad line that Lenovo acquired in 2005 and defined its Westernised image since the acquisition.[2]

In 2008, after introducing two new consumer brands, IdeaPad for laptops and IdeaCentre for desktops, Lenovo stopped selling its 3000 series models.[3]
