"I can't wait to dig in and help Lenovo develop future mobile computing products, starting with the Yoga Tablet. Lenovo is all about innovation and strong leadership. Entrepreneurship is part of their DNA, and I couldn't ask for a better fit."

    Chief marketing officer at Lenovo, David Roman, added that "[Ashton Kutcher's] authentic, creative appetite for technology and keen consumer insight combined with our innovation engine make this a very natural and powerful partnership.

    Kutcher is no stranger to the world of technology: he is cofounder of A-Grade Investments, which has invested in and worked with Airbnb, Fab, Foursquare, Spotify, Path and Uber.

    And even though Kutcher is known for his portrayal as Apple boss Steve Jobs, he is making the jump to team PC.

    Lenovo tweeted, welcoming their newest addition: "Say hello to our newest employee. @aplusk #lenovo #betterway" along with Kutcher's new ID badge.
