get a thinkpad. end of thread.
What's so good about them? I know next to nothing about Lenovo.
I've had a Mac for the past 2 years and loved it. Just got a new MacBook about 6 months ago that I will leave at home with my wife and I'm going to get a new computer. I don't think another Mac is necessary as all I'll really be using it for is internet and word processing. Lenovo is the right pick for that?
Also, I'd love to learn more about the OneNote application that was mentioned in this thread. I read up about it online, but would like to hear what people think from experience.
the thinkpad was originally from IBM but it was sold to Lenovo. Thinkpads are very reliable. a friend of mine is still using his thinkpad that he bought over 5 years ago. the services, quailty and reliabilty of the thinkpad are reasons why a lot of businessman use it.
In my shopping, I've seen a lot of Lenovo Ideapads. Is there a difference?
Ideapads are geared towards people who are interested in multimedia/games primarily. They have more memory and a real gfx card. They're nice, but for LS, I don't even want a laptop capable of gaming . A friend of mine just got the y550 (I think) for like 500$ cheaper than it lists on the site because they're running an additional 20% off ontop of their current sale. They also have free shipping right now, it's a great time to buy a Lenovo.
