Beijing: to carry the Olympic Torch (Post #14).

One of the trips we took as a UC group was to the Lenovo Headquarters, Beijing branch. Lenovo is a Chinese electronics company and is the second largest PC vendor in the world, after HP.

The lobby.

We were able to tour the place and got to see the history behind the company, the history of computers and laptops, as well as new products not yet released to the company.

The coolest thing about the tour, I felt, wasn’t even computer-related. Lenovo had sponsored the 2008 Olympics and, as a thank you gift, received one of the Olympic torches used during the opening ceremony.

And guess what? We were able to hold it.

Having a feeling-cool moment there.
