Lenovo North America's president Gerry Smith shared with CNET that the computer industry underestimated touchscreen demand:
The industry did underestimate touchscreen demand, he admitted. But people are still buying PCs -- at least from Lenovo. In addition, sales of premium-priced computers are growing faster than other PC segments, he said.

"Lenovo's a little different from other companies," Smith said. "We're still seeing strong growth and a strong premium to the market overall...And this quarter, we're seeing strong growth across all product segments."
