One thought on “Ducati fires up Lenovo 5 laptop PC

  1. Hey Lenovo, newsflash! GT stripes like that died out in the late 1960’s. Maybe the chardonnay socialists with their handknitted single-source scarves will be enthused by the bold statement and daring choice of colour while splitting the bill for a smashed avocado on toast. Maybe not.
