Can't be bad for a Thinkpad. They're not often seen at three hundred quid.
#5
There's nothing special about it.
#6
this is a pretty good deal - for what a laptop should be used for, the celeron dual core processor will cope perfectly fine (there wouldnt be the slightest difference in basic tasks between the t3100 and a pentium dual core t4200)

good find and heat added

I agree, you wouldnt pull this brick out when in public! :)

Still think its a good deal if you want to use it in private.

One of the best laptop keyboard out there (as usal on a ThinkPad)

I've never judged anyone's laptop in public, it's not something I notice. You must have too much time on your hands to snear at other people's laptops. Who really cares? Why should you care?

To be fair, they probably prefer some tacky piano black cheap **** acer.
#12
I agree with picard and fishmaster....

I've had a thinkpad x60s an x300 for years, personally I prefer the design of my laptop because:

a) it's less likely to get stolen than a shiny laptop.
b) the slightly rubberised thinkpad finish is virtually impervious to dirt
c) its smaller than a macbook air and has everything built in including optical drive
d) i don;t look like a total wanna-be novelist ponce in starbucks

that is all.

heat and rep added, fantastic deal on this excellent notebook.

Agreed, the legacy of IBM still runs through Lenovo laptops. Not sure of the intention of the comment regarding Acer - one rule for Lenovo and another for Acer?
#14
Quality wins here.

Still rocking on my T43 Ex-XPPRO, Now Ubuntu :)

Don't knock it till you try it.

Thinkpad Quality is one of the best if not the best.

fugly as all hell

Not for me, I wouldnt be seen dead in Starbucks with one of these.

I've used a Stinkpad every day for over 12 years. I wouldn't have anything else! This is an UBER bargain. With HDMI out and the 4500 GPU you have a stonking multimedia machine. If I hadn't bought 12 (slight embellishment) laptops because of this site over the past couple of years I would get one!

PS: Typing this on my latest Stinkpad: a T410. Glorious!
#18
Thinkpads have top build quality. Will last forever. I've got a T42 from 2002 and it's still running like new. Meanwhile all the Toshiba, Acer, Fujitsu etc laptops I've owned have barely lasted past their warranty dates.

Agree the build quality should still be good - I have an R61 and it's built like a tank with a fantastic keyboard HOWEVER the screens Lenovo use are poor quality with very bad colour rendition - you may be unlucky and get a poor one like me - google for Lenovo bad screens.

got to be one of the best laptops going thinkypads

ask any i.t guy

bloody bullet proof
#24
Luckily these weren't made for Chavs with a penchant for shiny black laptops, go-faster stripes and LED lights. They were made for people who prefer understated looks, power (on higher specced laptops), reliability and build quality. The ThinkPad is probably the most famous line of Windows-based laptop and not without reason. My T23 is still going strong almost 10 years later!

The ThinkPad X-series were also the original slim laptops!
#25
SL... laptops aren't the same as the "proper" Thinkpads.
#26
I've got an R51 and that's still going strong, still on it's original battery (which still holds a full charge) and to look at it you'd think it was brand new not a mark on it nor any sign of wear, no faded keytops.

Ideapads etc aren't of the same build quality as the true Thinkpads but i'd still have one over asus, acer et al
#27
Awesome Ipad Killer

who wants a laptop that will last forever? it's already out of date, most people upgrade their laptops after a year or so

what's the screen on it, glossy or matt?

Pretty sure its matte.

Thank-you. My sister is interested in a laptop. If she gets back to me in time she may have a bargain.

Regarding screens, the TN screens by Lenovo are just like any other LCD screens, not worse or better.

On the other hand, Lenovo's FlexView screens (IPS) are stunning but only available on high end laptops.

LED-backlit, VibrantView, glossy

good value, pity about the glossy screen: fashionable but not very useful
