i am going to buy a notebook but it's difficult to choose. there are so many brands.
someone told me a lenovo thinkpad is superb while an other suggested fujitsu, saying fujitsu is as good as ibm.
here, i would like to get your suggestion. i use the notebook mainly for word processing or the like, and i play some internet based games, i don't play need for speed.
I have heard of Fujitsu but I did not know they make laptops. Lenovo on the other hand has been making laptops in conjunction with IBM for years. I have heard a few complaints about size and/or weight of IBM laptops but I have not heard of any quality issues. Many corporations use IBM/Lenevo laptops so I think you are safe there.
Depends on models, but usually both of them roll out pretty solid laptops. Fujitsu-Siemens is actually the 6th largest notebook brand in the world, just not that popular in the United States. Don't choose a laptop just on brand, since these "brands" do nothing when it comes to actually building a laptop. I could recommend many other brands, but it all depends on your needs and price range.
Hmm...I'm pretty sure both companies have laptops that can suit you. But first of all, what's your price range? And are you sure that you won't be doing anything more than the basic tasks? Oh, one other thing, what country do you live in (since certain models in the US aren't available elsewhere, and vice-versa)?
go for fujitsu. the only brand that fully made in japan instead of taiwan/china/hk.
ibm notebook (thinkpad) had been bought over by lenovo. it used to be the most "solid" notebook in the world where every intel's employee had one, but now thinkpad just became like the rest of other brand.
I own a Fujitsu A6020. It's outdated by far (they stopped making it), but it's still a good laptop. I've had no problem running a high-end graphics program (rhymes with Koto-Pop and Temiere), although it lags at times. The only problem I've had is that it runs hot and the sound card leaves much to be desired.
On the other hand, my cousin uses a Lenovo and it runs like a dream. Mind you, it's only 13 inches, but it's lightweight, runs light and rarely fails. I'm not too sure how fast or strong it runs, but he runs Adobe products as well.
They're both great Laptop brands, so it's up to you. Hopefully, this wasn't just random rambling to you.
