TORONTO, ON – March 31, 2008
– SYNNEX Canada Limited, a subsidiary of SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), announced today that Lenovo’s TopSeller ThinkCentre line of desktops and TopSeller ThinkPad line of notebook PCs are now available from SYNNEX Canada effective immediately. The Lenovo–SYNNEX Canada partnership is focused on transactional sales targeting the small and medium size business (SMB) market.

Lenovo’s ThinkCentre desktop PCs and ThinkPad line of notebook PCs are designed to maximize productivity for business users, offering mainstream enterprise features including dual-core processing, improved virus protection and security, data recovery tools, and more. The new partnership enables SYNNEX Canada to offer these premium-class Lenovo PCs to their dealers and business customers, enabling Lenovo to expand their presence and accelerate sales in the fast-growing Canadian SMB market.

“Lenovo chose SYNNEX Canada because they are a leader in serving Canada’s SMB market,” said Jay McBain, Director, North American SMB Channels at Lenovo Canada. “Building a strong partnership with SYNNEX Canada and their resellers is a key element of our SMB market strategy. This partnership will help us to maintain our market leadership by offering ultra reliable, high quality PCs that build a strong foundation for any small business.”

Through the partnership with SYNNEX Canada, Lenovo’s ongoing investment in the Canadian SMB market includes simplifying their dealer registration process to expand their channel presence. As Lenovo’s primary transactional sales partner, SYNNEX Canada is leveraging their earlier success in selling Lenovo’s L3K family of desktop and notebook computers in Canada, which demonstrated to Lenovo the high-volume sales leadership and marketing expertise required to target key customer segments in the SMB marketplace.

“Over the course of our strong partnership, SYNNEX Canada proved to be Lenovo’s ideal partner to reach the SMB marketplace with Lenovo L3K family of PC products, and SYNNEX Canada is confident that we can do it again with the ThinkCentre and ThinkPad lines,” said Mitchell Martin, President, Broadline Division, SYNNEX Canada Limited, “We anticipate strong support of the Lenovo ThinkCentre and ThinkPad PCs—and our SMB customers will discover what a great partner Lenovo is to their business.”
