10,000 workers get generous bonus from Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing

It will come as no surprise to anyone who follows the technology world that CEOs at major corporations make a ton of money. Often their bonuses are even more than their yearly income. The CEO of Lenovo, Yang Yuanqing, recently received a fat bonus of $3 million. Rather than stuffing that big bonus away in his own bank account, Yang Yuanqing gave it away.
 
The CEO took the $3 million bonus and distributed it among 10,000 junior level employees. Among the employees to receive a piece of the pie were receptionists, production line workers, and assistants. Each of those 10,000 employees received a bonus of 2000 yuan, which works out to about $314 USD.
 
Lenovo had its best fiscal year ever, which ended in March. Lenovo saw a 73% increase in net profit compared to the previous year and Yang had previously said that it was a "record-setting year for Lenovo."
 
It's nice to see an executive giving away a huge chunk of money to the employees that had as much to do with Lenovo's successful year as any executive within the company.

Lenovo has recently launched several new products and services, including new no-contract broadband plans for its mobile computers.

You have to respect Lenovo

Not just a gesture like this, but in an age of corporate buyouts and cheap knockoffs, they actually improved the thinkpad line. When they bought it years ago, everyone expected they would make bank off the good thinkpad name in the corporate sector by cheapening it. They not only didnt cheapen the line, they improved upon it and make the best quality laptops and desktop on the market (going by failure rates). They have so few actual failures that its amazing.

I've built my own computers since the 286 days, but after working with Lenovo products at a former job for a couple of years, I couldn't pass up a smoking deal on an i7-2600 system. I bought it well over a year ago for $1000. i7-2600, 2TB HDD, 12GB RAM, GTX460 1GB ... and it's still rock solid.

Yup. And I bet if you sat on it for 10 years and never upgraded you would still be using it without a failure (other than maybe hard drive which could happen to any OEM)

Lenovos and MBPs are the only laptops I'd consider. Mid and high end Lenovos are among the best notebooks out there (their sub-$1000 laptops share a lot of the same problems others do, unfortunately). HP Elitebooks are great too but we're talking about $3000 machines here
