It's going to be a matter of price, design, and how to tap the hot button of consumers. Especially for the student market, they need to have some really cool stuff that will mange to get boatloads of comments on social media to really fly stuff off the shelves.

@Beth, it really is a time suck, but fascinating is the right word. Once you start to get into it your imagination just runs wild.

@bulk, i remember you sharing that earlier on these message boards. Maybe the demo should come with a warning about what a time suck you might be entering should you choose to proceed -- a fascinating time suck, but a time suck nonetheless! ;-)

That is the question, right? I'm assuming it's been through enough demos and knows its data well enough to understand that the visual analytics piece is a critical next step but, yes, the insight that comes from that will be interesting to hear about (which is why I've asked Ajit to talk again once the back-to-school campaign wraps up!).

@Hospice, 

I was very impressed with the platform I have a few ideas for simple uses with this type of analytics already. Just need to get around to it.

@Hospice, no doubt, competition will be stiff in the back-to-school device market -- and not only among Windows system providers. Apple will have its discounts, too.

@bulk,

"its very nice, sort of mind blowing"

Very interesting visualization platform indeed. I can see a lot of work is be done to make the visualization features user-friendly and easy to navigate.

@bulk,

Could that be related to the success of IBM in business analytics? With watson, IBM is one of the leading companies in smart analytics.

"Lenovo looks to capitalize on the back-to-school buying season"

It all depends on the prices as Lenovo will have to face competition from other tablet manufacturers aiming at conquering the school market. For instance, Microsoft is also targeting schools and universities with a Surface RT discount offer during the summer buying season.
