Carbonite pairs with Lenovo for backup

New Zealanders who buy Lenovo IdeaPad and IdeaCentre PCs will be able to trial Carbonite’s Online Backup service free from next month. The trial version will ship pre-loaded on the Lenovo PCs, and is then activated by the user with an email address and password. New Zealand is one of several countries where the partnership will take effect, including the US, Canada, France, Australia, Singapore, India and South Africa. Future territories will include Mexico, Brazil and the United Arab Emirates, the companies say. Carbonite’s executive vice president of business development, Bill Cunningham, says the company believes all PCs will ship with pre-installed online backup in future. “Studies show that users are more likely to switch PC brands if their computer crashes and they lose valuable data,” he says.
