Counterfeit products are replicas of the real products, designed to take advantage of the superior value and reputation of the real product. Fake products are products that do not exist in the manufacturer's product line, but are represented as the authentic branded product.
Unlike genuine products, counterfeit products and accessories may not meet government and industry safety standards.

Consumers should be wary of purchasing Lenovo products from unauthorized retailers and internet vendors.
