Tucker, Ga. - SED
International Holdings and Lenovo signed an agreement for the distributor to
carry a selection of Lenovo ThinkPad laptops, ThinkCentre desktops, IdeaPad
laptops, Lenovo-branded laptops and options to SED's network of U.S. reseller
partners.

 "We do the majority of our business through
channel partners, and by adding SED International as a new distributor, we're
strengthening our commitment to the channel and leveraging SED International's
expertise in a market we do not serve today, especially for partners who
specialize in small business computing," said Chris Frey, channel chief, Lenovo
North America. "The Lenovo-SED collaboration can quickly bring them products
with the performance, reliability and innovation their customers require," he
said in a prepared statement.

 "SED is excited about our new relationship
with Lenovo," said Jonathan Elster, president/CEO, SED. "We're continually
evolving and expanding our line card to better meet the needs of our partners,
and this agreement provides an excellent opportunity for SED to showcase its
efficient and growing distribution network. We see a lot of opportunity for
growth in the [small business] space, and our new agreement with Lenovo enables
SED to offer our reseller customers serving this market a richer portfolio of
products designed specifically to address their clientele's unique needs."

Beginning
immediately, products available through SED International include the ThinkPad Edge and SL laptops, designed for customers who
want business-class performance, are style-conscious and need these features at
an affordable price. Starting around $600, the laptops are equipped with
choices of second-generation Intel Core processors. Lenovo G-series laptops offer features that will meet
virtually any budget, while IdeaPad laptops feature multimedia and entertainment
technologies for business or personal computing, SED said. The SED portfolio
also includes the ThinkCentre A70z all-in-one desktop for high-performance
computing that features a small footprint, making it ideal for crowded offices,
it added.
