It just announced that Lenovo PCs will come with the Pokki app, which includes a real Start button and menu, not the Start button which takes you to Start screen that will ship with Windows 8.1.

The app will appear on nearly all shipping Lenovo Windows 8 devices, starting with the IdeaPad and IdeaCenter, and then by the Think line."
