Wait, IBM still makes those laptops with the little red pointer button in the middle of the keyboard?
I thought IBM was off making super computers that play jepordy these days?
LoL, that is what I first thought...
I think back in 05' or 06' IBM sold their ThinkPad mark to Lenovo and in my honest opinion, Lenovo has done a great job with it.
Especially the ThinkPad Edge series, or IdeaPad U series.
I don't like companies such as HP, Dell, Compaq, Gateway, Sony VAIO, Asus and the rest... I mean, I owned 2 HP's laptops, 1 Asus laptop, 1 Gateway
laptop and 2 Dell laptops in the past and as well as 1 Sony VAIO.
This is of course personal opinion, none of the brands I owned in the past comes close to what ThinkPad offers, in terms of $ per pound value.
I mean, find me a 14" - 15" laptop that is LED edge lit, 720p display, 720p camera, finger print scanner, HDMI ready, Core i5 2nd gen CPU, Slot Load
DVDRW (Vehicle Style), weighs 4 lbs... for $450...
It is of course "Refurbished" but doesn't change the fact that I got a $900 MSRP laptop for half the price.
You will need to be patient to wait for the best deal to come up but the site I provided refreshes their stock conditions sometimes as frequent as a
hourly basis. There were many instances in the past where I chose one to buy and during check out, it's already sold out.
