Batteries are removable, as per reviews it gives 8 hrs browsing.But considering these are old laptops, batteries might not be that great.

ThinkPad is highly regarded when it comes to reliability. Tons of support and parts for ThinkPad too all over the internet.

Stats don't bear that out. Check out squaretrade warranty research online - it's old research but there's nothing to suggest it's got better and the Lenovo laptop I took a chance on was faulty out of the box. Buy if you like, I won't be making that mistake again.

Eh....they clearly showed which brands made most claims on their warranties and which were the least. Go ahead if you are that gullible. I don't care, but I won't be fooled. Only HP were worse IIRC

I already have a laptop thanks. Not a lenovo either. But I wouldn't be silly enough to believe some random on hot UK deals about which laptops are most reliable either. Especially not business class laptops.

But you would be silly enough to ignore actual recorded data rather than an opinion? ....OK yeah I understand where you are coming from....
Like I say, I took a chance on a Lenovo laptop despite the stats because it was a great deal; I regretted it. If you want to take a chance, be my guest. But don't be arrogant enough to dispute actual data, it makes you look stupid.
Have got one of these and advised two friends to also get one. Never had an issue, SSD makes these as fast, if not faster, than current machines with none SSD HDD.

Just my opinion.....

They are meant to be pretty impressive, a few people in our office have them, very reliable.

There must be a reason thinkpads are used on the ISS.

One minute....

To start you're calling people gullible but yet to back up your claim? Please do feel free to post your current laptop make and model number, while we are at it post the Lenovo model number too. I guarantee both are cheap consumer tat.

You're basing your information of a company who can't even provide the actual figures for their graph.

squaretrade.com/htm…pdf

The figures they actually quote being "projections" which are utterly meaningless figures to be considered a study. If you took the time to read the text they clearly state that 3 year projections they use are "rough" figures. So I'm supposed to accept that a figure I can't confirm exactly and that is then subject to being roughly projected to the future for visual effect as a good way to tell what's good or bad?

"Only malfunctions reported directly to SquareTrade are included in the data."

They literally allow any issue to be included that's reported to them including software matters. How is anyone to take this as a serious 'study' when they include PEBKAM issues which a vast majority are caused regardless of hardware supplier or brand.

Furthermore I'd posit that out of the 30,000 laptops considered in this 'study' that there were well under 1% of Dell Latitude, Lenovo Thinkpad and HP Elite/Pro book models. But of course they provide no data to consider if this is of use, no breakdown of numbers, model rangers or anything more than percentages that are positively made up.

This is a business laptop, you've clearly purchased a consumer model which frankly after having experienced consumer laptops I would never go back to. I've had a Dell, a HP, a Toshiba, an Acer, an Asus and others over the years, over the last 10 years I've had 1 consumer model machine manage to survive past the 3 year mark. All the rest never managed the 3 year mark and most suffered terminal failures.

I've got in service a HP Elitebook that's 8 years old and still running fine, a Dell Latitude that's the equivalent model to this Lenovo X230 and runs a charm, an Thinkpad X61 that's 10 years old still running strong and a 9 year old Thinkpad X200 also running beautifully.

If you know what to buy, you will get a machine that lasts. If you want to buy a cheap machine that's brand new and trying to look pretty then it's pretty assured it will struggle to last the time. If you want reliable, affordable performance that's not super new and doesn't look particularly pretty then these sorts of machines are a bargain. For me reliability trumps all other factors.

But how is that in any way relevant?
SquareTrade sell warranties.
Business-grade laptops are usually come with 3 year on-site warranties handled by the manufacturer. So it would be Lenovo (or Dell, or HP) who would fix this, not SquareTrade. After 3 years the laptops are usually sold on (hence the amount of 'refurb' used ones for sale).
Basic point: whatever consumer junk the likes of HP, Dell, or Lenovo make for race-to-the-bottom mass market has very little bearing on how they make or support their business lines.
Are these refurbs generally in a decent enough condition?
Look I don't care what you think, Lenovo have a great track record of poor quality equipment and no track record that you've shown of good quality. Buy them and weep, it's up to you.
I've had a Lenovo X201 and a X220 and both have been exceptionally well made and haven't had any issues whatsoever. Both were refurbs from rpm3000.

You've so far got no track record of proving any point thus far, quoting a report from a company with a vested interest in showing how 'unreliable' machines can be after 3 years because their main business is to sell 3 year warranties. Amazing that they actually show no real world data about how 'unreliable' these machines are and simply project what they think the figure is going to be. The reason being that I suspect they know like I do that electronic hardware typically after the first year or so mark is vastly less likely to stop working so by massaging the figures it makes it look better for marketing.

You came in spurting spurious claims with no evidence of any value. The onus is on you to prove outside of anecdotes from your own use case that there is an issue with Thinkpads. Its already been said to you that you've picked up a cheap, plastic and basic laptop and had a bad experience. Next time try a £1000+ computer and experience what reliability actually is (and if that's too expensive buy a refurb of one of those models a few years later).

As I pointed out above. I have and run numerous business grade laptops from the last 10+ years. None have failed or had any actual faults (outside of ones I caused myself tinkering). Every single consumer grade machine I had either has since been scrapped for failing, is in a scrap pile to be sent for recycling in the future or returned because it was a waste of money after it became very apparent consumer grade models are built to a price. I'd trust a premium business level machine much further than any of the cheap alternatives.

I have challenged you to tell us the exact model details of what you run now and what this Lenovo was but thus far you've not bothered to provide that information. I think I can run loops around whatever brand you happen to bring up in terms of track records as the mass market machines never have a good track record for quality.

When you've tried all aspects of the market then let us know. For now, those of us in the Latitude, Thinkpad, Elitebook, Probook, Lifebook, Toughbook and other business machines will stick to what we know of how to get a quality device.

You should do more research before you spout opinionated nonsense. They have released actual statistics on claims on warranties for a number of brands albeit a while ago. You, however, have produced precisely nothing.

What research do you suggest I do? Please do tell me oh wise one what you think I should do exactly to understand what I already know to be the case. The dozens of companies I've interacted with the ICT service teams of and gotten an understanding of the reliability of the hardware they are deploying? I very much doubt you have ever had any laptop hardware that continues to function is over 10 years old.

As yet you've been the one starting to make the first of those claims and as yet provided no citation of the source. I've gone out of my way to find what I believe you're attributing. My job is not that I have to find something to produce, I simply have to explain how the scientific methodology is entirely wrong and that it is all based in confirmation bias to support the ends of the company that provides it.

With that said you appear unable to reason out how little in the way of 'information' this squaretrade document contains. You've apparently just looked at a few graphs, drawn your conclusion and refusing to look at the information presented to work out if it's justified in it's claims.

You're a marketing dream so with that I'll leave you in your bubble.
