I understand Lenovo bought up IBM's laptop division, but do you think they've kept the standards up? Do they have a good reputation of customer care and reliability, anyone know?

Oh I always liked the TrackPoint but this seems to have a conventional laptop "mouse" thing on the bottom too. I don't like those, can it be disabled?

Any help appreciated.

By most accounts quality has remained exactly the same as before in the IBM days (for Thinkpad models anyway)

Dunno about disabling the mouse pad but would guess so.

Great price, hot.

Cheapest by a fiver.

Misco do the NUE2UUK which comes with 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD and 6 cell battery for £496. Quidco do 3.5% cashback at Misco which would bring the price down to £478.64.

Note that on the Lenovo site that the Windows 7 Pro Model uses a 1.5GHz AMD Neo X2 processor and the Windows 7 Home Premium uses a 1.6GHz model. I know it won't make much difference, but it needs to be factored into the deal. So if you do the Home Premium model route and upgrade the 4GB of RAM, that takes the cost to £588 take off 15% and that brings it down to £499.80. Then 5% quidco brings that to £474.81.

So if you want Windows 7 Pro, then go to Misco, if you want Home Premium, buy direct from Lenovo.

MISCO charge for P&P too I think.

Remember Lenovo offer brilliant pricing on warranty too:


2YR Warranty £38.07

3YR Warranty £50.76

3YR Onsite Warranty £64.51

Which model did you order and which colour?
#11
Most of best laptops are now made by Lenovo.

A colleague of mine recently picked up a Lenovo lappy, I've gotta be honest I was hugely impressed with the build quality. Very solid and sturdy.

Be any good for games?

Doubt it.

ATI Radeon HD 3200 embedded graphics

Graphics performance fares slightly better. The integrated ATi GPU delivers enough power for running complex multimedia presentations, as well as basic photo and video editing.

I'm sorry, but is that a £90-£100 premium just for mobile internet? The dongles cost a tenner!!

To one of the earlier posters - I have had a few Thinkpads by IBM and Lenovo. I don't think Lenovo quite keep up IBM's standard. With IBM, you were not just paying for the computer and construction, but the support. I was working in the middle east and needed reinstall discs, they were with me in a few days, you could do full reinstalls from a DOS based recovery partition and a network connection etc. Lenovo are good but they don't seem as good a few years on. Like most things, they build to a price and make a few mistakes here and there.

The pointer is a fave of mine, love it. Generally you can disable the touchpad and indeed the touchpad is removed from machines such as the X200.

Lenovo came up with this Edge line of laptops to milk the Thinkpad name, so if you're expecting a Thinkpad quality you won't get it here.
#20
actually Lenovo is investing much more on development on Thinkpads comparing to the IBM era.

Personally, I found the Lenovo service similar to what we had during the IBM times.
#21
super bargain for a lenovo thinkpad edge! great found! thanks!

Bear in mind that is a Gobi2000, not just support WCDMA/HSDPA band we use in the UK, it does EV-DO as well (if lenovo dont lock it), it is very useful for travelling to US etc.
#23
I've got one of the first Lenovo X61's, excellent quality, would snap this up in an instant if I need a new lappy.
#24
Tempted but for this price I would go for an Acer 4810TZG, similar spec but 4GB ram 320GB HD, ATI 4330. Also Acers warranty is cheap too, something like £80 for 3 years.

They come with recovery software that has a nice shiny gui these days. In my experience of having about 300 laptops and 400 desktops support was always top notch (unlike IBMs own on the servers!!) new keyboards, DVD/CD drives etc were all sent out and are untracked so they didn't ask for the old ones back, HDs arrived next day and were a swap it out and return to the courier.

Again in my personal experience the build quality of the new laptops equals the older ones don't forget that their lower level ideapads etc are built to a price rather than to quality like their business class laptops.

How far would I have to upgrade the base model to make it able to run photoshop/media editing software with ease? Anybody know?
#28
I bought one of these for the wife when they were first released. It's an excellent laptop for the price - an ideal everyday workhorse with decent battery life. The key feature is the superb splash-proof 'chicklet'-style keyboard and the little Lenovo touches that don't feature on equivalent laptops at this price point.

Here's a useful (and positive) review

#29
From my experience I don't think that Lenovo have quite managed lived up to the standard of the IBM thinkpad range. Still well built, just not quite as long lasting.
But I think all new laptops aren't as long lasting as as they used to be. Using far cheaper less well made components and trying to cram many more features and processing power in a very confined and hot space. compare the old Dells' to the new Dells its the same story.

Still, for new laptops, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lenovo. They're still one of the top brands.

Voted Hot :thumbsup:
Time to pack up my trusty Sinclair ZX80.......:p

Looks very nice to be fair for the price
#32
Oh wow - new lightweight ThinkPads with TrackPoints?!

They look snazzy too. I might have to finally upgrade from my IBM x40! :-D
#33

Are these glossy screens? Looks like it, and if so DOH! That's one of the best features of ThinkPads gone!

What is the weight?
#34

NP, seems there's no option for anti-glare on 13":thinking:

I like glossy personally but then I rarely use my laptop out and about, but can understand people wanting matt for various lighting conditions.
#38
So from reading these comments are these ThinkPads built like Volkswagons? i.e. very reliable and stable

Have you seen my post for the X100e, they are anti-glare if the other specs suit you? (under 3lbs :w00t:)

ThinkPads yes, but this isn't a real ThinkPad. If your thinking of T or X series it's not the same. It's a consumer grade laptop dressed up to pretend being business model.
