I didn't realize the server market was small enough that sales of 8000 units would put you in the top 10! Lenovo getting bounced out was kind of a surprise also.... But anyway, good work for Apple! :)

I wasn't even aware that Lenovo makes servers. IBM kept their big (and hugely profitable) servers business when they sold their PC division to Lenovo, so I'd guess that Lenovo only makes SOHO servers - stuff for 10 clients or less.

I think Lenovo sold small servers alongside their desktop line long before they bought the Thinkpad products from IBM, although I could be wrong. Lenovo also sells the ClearCube blade system.
