Lenovo Considers Packard Bell

Lenovo Group Ltd. is in talks to acquire Dutch PC maker Packard Bell, which is valued at approximately $800 million. Lenovo is the world's third-largest PC maker, following its 2005 acquisition of IBM's ThinkPad unit. That deal was partially financed by a $350 million private equity infusion from TPG and General Atlantic. www.lenovo.com www.packardbell.com
