About this title


The inside story of the first outpost of china's developing economic power. The story of Legend, a Chinese computer company rated higher than most of its major Western counterparts, who have become China's first internationally-recognised brand. In 1996 a virtually unknown computer company called Legend surprised the world by overtaking such global powerhouses as Hewlett-Packard, IBM and Compaq to become the leading computer-maker in China. Liu Chuanzhi and 10 colleagues, operating out of a ramshackle bungalow in Beijing, created a corporation with more than $2 billion in international revenues and the first Chinese brand name to win international recognition. Legend's rise to dominance closely mirrors the story of China's own transformation from a closed Communist state into a global economic powerhouse. The computer company that came from nowhere is undoubtedly the first bastion of a huge new presence in world business. Today the world's computer legends are beating their paths to Legend's gleaming office towers to form strategic alliances that could generate an entirely new face of silicon monopoly in the coming years.

Bill Gates (Microsoft) and Andy Grove (Intel) have already created significant links with the Chinese startup, confident that China - and Legend - will continue to grow into one of the bright spots of the global economy.
