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 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.
