An IBM ThinkPad? You must be joking! Lenovo owns IBM's PC and Notebook division now! Laughing Try a Lenovo ThinkPad T60 if you want a low end and relatively cheap laptop. However if you want an older computer I reccommend IBM over Dell any day.

totally IBM i have
IBM (not Lenovo) ThinkPad T42 for 2years and man I abused and keep abusing it & after destroying half of the laptop IBM was gladly to replace my Screen, CDRW/DVD-ROM, TouchPad, Front Plastic panel Very Happy

Also IBM has way better BIOS options and Power Management Smile

I totally go with IBM

i think IBM( Lenovo) is good...

The reason I was wondering is that I heard that Lenovo was not that great after taking over ibm. Also there are some issues with the parts considering it is all made in china now. I don't know if that is true or not??

Thats probably one of the reasons that they run out of money and where sold out...

It depends on what you want to use it for. IBM, is best for more proffesional stuff...(far the best), but there is no longer IBM, they where sold...

If you have a Dell's Authorized Service Partner or their own service center in your city then i suggest you go for a Dell.

What's your budget?
If you want a regular laptop, I believe Dell laptops are great.
But if you want a cheap laptop, IBM/ Lenovo has Dell beat.

And you have to think if you want battery life, speed, memory and all other factors.
Battery life has IBM at the top of the food chain.

I have both, both are great. Dell precision, and an ibm thinkpad z60
