"We are committed to providing leading and cost-effective thin client technology for users," explained Joe Makoid, President, Devon IT. "When a market and technology leader like Lenovo is progressing end-to-end desktop computing solutions, it is obvious that something exciting is happening. We have always been proponents of hosted computing and centralized management as a way for IT managers to reduce costs."
