Doesn't look like Lenovo includes the external DVD drive in the price. :x

Also very nice, the HP DM3-1020EA (comes with a USB DVD recorder included in the price, but lacks a TrackPoint and faster processor).

Very slow processor - why would you spend over £450 on a laptop with an AMD 1.6GHz cpu?

This is a work laptop, not a gaming/video encoding rig.

It is ideally suited for those on a low budget, that were previously considering a Netbook but wanted a bigger screen and a lot more performance from their new computer.

The HP version provides excellent value for money (even has a zippy 7200rpm hard drive, which works out very nicely in combination with the Dual Core processor). The Lenovo I can't comment too much on, since I haven't played with one myself yet.

It also comes with 7 pro, which for a work laptop is generally more welcome than home premium. Plus, take into account the 3.5% cashback and this netbook is cheaper than the HP, with better customer feedback generally on Lenovo products than HP from my research! :thumbsup:

Good customer service? I wouldn't know, my Thinkpads have never broken down or given me cause to call support (had/still have an X31, X41 and X61S over the past 6 years). :thumbsup:

If the HP had a Trackpoint I would have voted cold on the Lenovo, it looks tacky IMO. ;-)

How is a £468 laptop suitable for a "low budget"?

This is cheap for a super light/thin laptop computer.

Have a look at the new Dell Vostro 3300 13.3" laptop with Core i3 processor for £399+vat (released today):

Looks fabulous.

It's just a little thicker/heavier, but incorporates a DVD Recorder. Also the price will ultimately be higher, once you have bumped up the spec to match the others, it looks like a great machine. Shame the budget version has no Bluetooth/Wireless N and only a 4cell battery.

Idealy you want a combination of all 3 into one computer. ;-)

HP's flashy metal exterior design, Dell's integrated DVD recorder and Lenovo's Trackpoint. :thumbsup:

This one's designed for mobility. So, no optical drive and a souped up "netbook processor". This one has a battery life of up to 7.8 hours according to the blurb. :thumbsup:

I think that's via an optional 8cell battery. The 6 cell batteries on the Lewnovo/HP should last 4.5 - 5hours with the Wireless LAN switched on.

Bargain price! I don't care what other people say - most machines are just useless for business. You don't need the fastest processor but you need it doing what it is supposed to, you need it to be small and light and you need a battery which doesn't die every 2 hours. I am afraid netbooks are too small for productivity over a long time and they are underpowered for multitasking. Home machines typically are massively too big and heavy and the battery does not last. It is only very recent that you could get a machine to fit the bill for much under £1k. So this is a marvellous option (and there are others nowdays). Mind you, money does talk and my hp elitebook will be trucking long after many machines have been damaged beyond repair - then again, it costs twice as much. You pays your money and all that....
