Origin of "Lenovo"?

In the local news recently has been the taking-over of IBM's PC business
by a Chinese company named Lenovo. Their name apparently means "Think",
but it doesn't look like any Chinese word I've ever encountered. So, the
question I put to you (and astute readers may have discerned this already)
is: In what language does "Lenovo" mean "Think"? I think it's an optative
or imperative, FWIW.
