I recently got a Lenovo laptop for work (T430 I think). BLAZING fast, standard hard drive, great battery life. VERY happy with it.

Thanks for all your help!

If my DD tried to build her own computer, she'd end up with the prettiest looking laptop in all the land, but would forget to add memory and a hard drive.

I forgot about Lenovo. I bought one for my son this past August. He is taking an online class that requires a very specific video card. He didn't have a laptop so this was the perfect birthday present. The price of the Lenovo with the right specs couldn't be matched by anyone else price wise.

We did have trouble with it out of the box. Tech support thought they fixed it but it acted up a week later. The new tech guy was the worst person I think I have ever spoken to in my lifetime. I was prepared to return the computer because he was such a jerk. It wasn't a good moment for me since I was actually swearing and yelling at him by the end. This guy really got to me. My fault on that one. I got a supervisor who talked me down, fixed the computer the right way, and DS has never had a problem since.
