Summary: Well, I'm typing on it right now. I bought this to replace an older laptop running Windows XP. Considering the cost to upgrade, versus the cost of this, no brainer. I also bought a docking station, because I needed the serial port. As an added plus, a PCMCIA card I could never get to work with the previous laptop, worked as soon as I plugged it in. No dislikes so far, although the hard drive is a bit small. That's why I only gave it 4 stars. For the money, can't be beat!

Excerpt: It is with regret that I am writing this review. I sit looking at a laptop that I am about to replace. I have owned my Thinkpad R61 for 4 and a half years and have never had cause to complain. However I have now cracked the screen and realise that it is probably time I updated. =Looks= Ok, lets be honest, none of the Lenovo range are going to win awards for looks. It is square and boxy in a nice rubberised matt black finish.
A useful machine for the office environment, but need better for home

Excerpt: This is the laptop that I use and support at work. My job is that of an IT Desktop Support Analyst and therefore I need to have quite an in depth knowledge of the product. This laptop can be used both with windows XP and Windows Vista. The machine comes with 512mb of Ram installed by default, but this is expandable if you wish to put more memory into the machine. My laptop has now has 1gb installed in it due to the pressure we put on it in the working environment.
Excerpt: This laptop is a dinosaur, and I don’t mean T-Rex dinosaur I mean Brontosaurus as it big, heavy, and slow and deserves to be extinct. This laptop looks and feels as though it should be in a museum. It looks like it was designed in the 1980s and feels awful to use. It is about the same weight as a brick if not heavier. There is one advantage and that is it looks very robust.
Excerpt: I love IBM and Lenovo. I think they build the best computers in the world (pc based, I have no intention of getting into the PC/Mac debate right now) Built around the powerful Intel Centrino Duo this laptop is fantastic value for money. You can get it for between £300-£400 on the web. Having had an earlier model for several years with no issues whatsoever, I was very sad when it died due to an unfortunate incident with a pint of water.
Excerpt: I have had my laptop now for just over a month and I am now ready to report on my findings. I will say at the start that this was supplied to me from my insurance company, rather than by choice. I was assured that it was a like for like replacement for my Toshiba. (evidently in the world of insurance Toshiba and Lenovo are spelt the same?). Needless to say the chances of me renewing my policy with them are somewhere between sweet FA and Nil.
