Lenovo Laptops. Good Quality?

Hi! I'm planning to buy some new laptops and therefore I'm wondering if Lenovo is a good choice?

Isn't it IBM who produce Lenovo? I remember the good old IBM desctops... Wow! That was Quality!

    It was Lenovo who produced PCs for IBM and then bought the whole PC division from IBM. However, they already have a much larger line of PCs of their own. So as far as laptops are concerned, it is only the ThinkPad series that are descended from IBM, the others are Lenovo.

    I have used over 10 Thinkpads in my business without any problems. The servicing is usually very fast and dependable. But the key issue for me is the pointing stick as I cannot stand using the touch pad.

    Thanks! It's actually ThinkPad I have planned to buy. Or to be more specific: Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 15.6" HD

    You should look at that model carefully in a shop. My wife has got the 14" Edge and does not like the keyboard. The keys are more widely spaced than previous Levono Thinkpads and that made her mistype quite often.

    I didn't buy it a few days ago.

    I had a Lenovo and loved it. Strong heavy duty..works well..get it on tigerdirect.com and pay for the extended service. If you drop it break it or anything they replace it no questions asked.

    Go with the Think Pad Edge is the one to get. I've done extensive research and that is the one I am buying very soon.

    I'm very hard on laptops. If durability is a feature you need, Lenovo is definitely a good choice. I've had 3 - two which endured extensive travel and one that survived flying out of my trunk at 40 mph with no harm.

    The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 is a good choice. It's durable and dependable.

    I have the ThinkPad W701, a 17 inch laptop. It's by a fair margin the best computer I've ever had, and that includes a Mac. (The Mac was actually the worst.)

    I'm travelling for an extended time and doing everything with just one computer, and couldn't have a better one for it.

    According to the information I read, the Lenovo is real solid, you can feel the quality of Lenovo. The more advantage is that the functionality is great, it has great magical functions, it does. The fingerprint is very useful. The specifications are pretty good.

    Quick update on this.

    The loose screen is actually the result of split case which is now gaping in the far right hand corner where the hinge is.

    I've only had this for a few months and it's being sent back on Tuesday for repair.

    So I offer a Paper writing service. My question is how can I post in different city's/states without being banned? Craigslist says you cannot post in different regions, apparently it's prohibited. But i'd love to post my services in all of the states..

    Hello guys! I began trying to make a little side cash online and joined Warrior Forum back in 2011. In 2012 I was making Adsense Micro Niche sites and also Amazon sites, always focusing on keywords that I could grab an open .com domain name for. I had many flops, but did have an amazon site that did well and make me about $100 a month on average. I got excited and began writing more and more articles, creating more and more sites. Eventually my marriage hit a rough spot because my wife was upset I spent way to much time on the computer so I walked away from the micro niche site world... Fast forward 4 years, the marriage didnt work out anyway and I wish that I would have never left, I now feel like I have so much to learn all over again! Are Amazon sites still a decent way to go? I woulnt ask for anything to be spoon fed to me I know that is a huge pet peeve for many forum members, but any suggestions or just pointing in a general direction would be greatly appreciated!

    What would you write on your blog when you haven't even launched your product? I looked at 10 blogs and saw that most of them wrote about 'How they achieved and X metric' (non-relevant to the product), culture and other stuff when the whole idea is to gain more 'beta interests'! As a marketer, what will you do? In other words, what will be your content marketing strategy?
