Lenovo Laptops: National Security Threat ?

The Chinese government hold about 27% share of Lenovo, which purchased IBM's PC division last year. US lawmakers claim there is an "enormous" opportunity for the Chinese government to use the deal as a way to spy on the U.S.

Therefore, the USCC is calling for an official probe voicing concerns that Lenovo computers may include components that facilitate spying on US.

Lenovo said it had nothing to hide and would welcome the investigation.

Lenovo is to supply more than 15,000 Lenovo ThinkCentre M51 desktops and 1,000 ThinkCentre M51 mini-tower PCs to the US State department over a period of six months.
