    I like ThinkPad because it presents a lifestyle the I am really into it. It’s a lifestyle of being serious about both work and fun. Never lose the focus on work but also enjoy the life. I have a T410 and I am crazy about it. I chose it when I bought it because its size suits my choice. Easier to be carried than T510 and better performance with i7 processor. I’m lovin it. It rocks.!!

    Actually initially I thought I wanted to buy a Dell laptop, but then I was introduced to the Thinkpad Lineup – and I was blown away by the black rubbery paint. My first Thinkpad was the Z60t, since my wife has gotten the X60, and to everybody I know I recommend a Thinkpad. It’s just a class above everything else. I would love to have the T410, maybe even for my wife.

  3. T Haug on October 29th, 2010 3:34 pm

    I have an x61s, and it is a durable and full featured laptop, and so thin and light. One of the best things I like about ThinkPads is how easy they are to work inside of them. Since I buy ThinkPads for all of my sales force, there are times I need to get inside and do upgrades and replacements, and it is great to know I don’t need a manual and can just open it up at the labeled screws.

  4. Kevin Mihelich on October 29th, 2010 4:12 pm

    I love ThinkPads because of their durability. I have brought them through harsh desert environments, not babying them by any means, and they’ve all come back still purring where others fell apart. Started with an X40, then T60p, X41 Tablet, SL500. I haven’t, and won’t buy any other brand.

  5. Sean Burke on October 29th, 2010 5:39 pm

    The Thinkpad exemplifies what good design is. It takes what the consumer needs and adds more making it what the consumer can’t live without. I bought my first thinkpad (T61p) for college not knowing much about it, and ended up falling in love with the design and can’t go back.

  6. Brian S. on October 29th, 2010 7:03 pm

    My first, only, and current ThinkPad, a T42, was the most durable machine ever. It saw: four years of college, coding in Java class, monster spreadsheets in stats, hundred page papers in literature, 3 girlfriends, 4 dorm rooms, 2 apartments, nosey roommates, who knows how many releases of iTunes, thousands of hours of Internet browsing and IMs, emails, schedules, editing my digital photos, every version of Facebook profiles/photos/wall posts since the site’s inception in 2004, many sets of hands on the keyboard, nervous moments of online grade postings, DVD movies on the road, online streaming of breaking news conferences, an attempt at re-creating the original Oregon Trail for Windows XP environment, was re-imaged 3 times, saw 2 different jobs after college and helped me apply for many more, there have been unlimited hairs and pop tart crumbs in the keyboard, survived rain soaked book bags, it’s been left in hot cars and placed in the refrigerator on occasion…and not a single part needed replacement after 6+ years of use. Even the track point still works like new, and I refuse to use a touch pad or buy a new laptop that doesn’t have a track point. My internal fan has recently died, and I could replace it, but a 40gb HD, 512mb memory, and 1.4ghz processor have finally become outdated. I want a laptop that will last me another 6 years, and there’s no other brand I trust more to live up to my expectations and conditions from the past 6 years. I’ll buy a new ThinkPad even if I don’t win.

  7. Lu on October 29th, 2010 9:01 pm

    well it was since T42 that I have been using thinkpads, though they were super expensive at that time. thinkpads are designed for people, with silent keyboards, nice keyboard lights and steady structure. Though my t400s came up with a random shutdown fraud and tooke me a lot to fix it, i believe future thinkpads will not make the same mistake. Do hope so.

  8. Gian Lazaro on October 30th, 2010 12:30 am

    I’m impressed by the quality and sturdiness of Lenovo Thinkpads. It does look clunky but you better get the one that does the job, and does it right (ehem, Macbook) My brother has a Thinkpad T510 and I used to borrow his laptop (I have an IdeaPad Y530)m because it performed five times better than mine in terms of speed, until he left off for college. Everyone deserves to win :) Sorry for the bad grammar, I’m a foreign student -__-.

  9. tania pham on October 30th, 2010 1:30 am

    I have use a T510 and would love a T410. It is light and small enough for me to put in my purse. I am not very careful and a T410 would endure all the abuse I subject my laptop to. I am an attorney and I always need to have access to my laptop so a T410 would be perfect.

  10. Jared Ribic on October 30th, 2010 2:12 am

    I’ve had several ThinkPads: 600E, T30, T40, X41, Z61m, and T400.

    Of all the laptops I’ve tried, I’ve never found a better keyboard. I also like having the trackpad. They hold up very well, and completely suit my needs.

    If I had the room to carry it around, I’d love to get one of the W series ThinkPads. I’d max it out with 16GB of memory and get busy!

  12. Blake LeBlanc on October 30th, 2010 8:25 am

    I currently have a ThinkPad T61 15.4″ with 2.5GHz Mobile Core 2 Duo CPU, 4GB Ram and 320GB 7200rpm hard drive. This is the best laptop I have ever used. It’s a real workhorse and solid as a rock. I love the keyboard – very easy to type on . I recommend Lenovo laptops to everyone who asks for my opinion. My next laptop will definitely be a little smaller – I’ve been eyeing the T410. I’ve been finding the larger 15.4″ size T61 a bit hard to handle now that I’ve been having some issues with my hands and have actually dropped my T61 a number of times. A lesser laptop would have been put out of commission but my solid T61 still works great! :)

  13. Pete on October 30th, 2010 9:06 am

    I have had a 755CD Thinkpad which was replaced with a 600 that is still being used daily after replacing the 4.0 gb hard drive. My wife uses an R51 with XP Professional and I am using a T60 with Vista. The T60 has been used, without a crash, for 20 hours daily for business and home for the past three years. None of my Thinkpads have had any failures of hardware. All the Thinkpads are kept in excellent condition by using Microsoft, Symantec and Lenovo’s system updates. All three Thinkpads are cleaned and defragged at least monthly, if not more frequently. The R51 will be used by our son this fall which will be replaced by a T410. The quality of the Thinkpads is superior to Dell, Sony, and Toshiba laptops, all used by my son which are now golden bricks due to hardware failure-mostly motherboards.The three Thinkpads have not had ANY hardware failure, just a little polishing of the keys that are most used on the keyboard. I would not have any machine other than a Thinkpad because of their durability, reliability, and excellent quality.

  14. Ian Orford on October 30th, 2010 10:07 am

    Thanks for that superb post Pete!

  15. Xingyi Zhao on October 30th, 2010 10:08 am

    Thinkpad laptop has the best quality over all of the name brand laptop in the market. Due to my job purpose, I’ve used/tested almost all brand of the laptops in the market. I’ve found Thinkpad is the best. I always suggest/advise my colleague or friend to buy Lenovo computer because from my experience I knew they have the best stability and quality. I’ve used T60,T61,X60, X200, T500, T400 SL500, and s10-2. Unfortunately I haven’t have chance to use those i5 i7 series CPU yet. I am planning to get T410, so this will be a good chance for me.

  16. Zhangxian Deng on October 30th, 2010 11:31 am

    I didn’t own a Thinkpad, but also enjoyed its quiet, steady and fast performance from my friends’. In China, Thinkpad has a nickname — “little black”, which is a popular pet’s name. Getting a “pet” like this is dreams of all chinese students, especially an engineering students who desires for a high quality workstation. I am now interested in T510 and W510, which are both affordable and admirable. How I wish I could have my own “little black”…

  17. T Lall on October 30th, 2010 12:14 pm

    I love thinkpads primarily because of their durability. As an IT Consultant, I’ve worked with T60′s and T43. I personally own a T400, 2.4Ghz, 2GB Mem, DVD RW and the works.

    Recently had an issue with the screen so have to replace. Overall though, it’s a very sturdy laptop and functions well. I’ve owned other laptops, eg Latitude D820 and Toshiba M115-S3094 and when it comes to durability, the thinkpad is lighter and stronger.

    I also love the keyboards on the thinkpads and their small boxy shape especially on the 14″. Great for portability.

  18. Neungheui on October 30th, 2010 3:32 pm

    I love Thinkpad T410 primarily because of durability, reliability, and excellent quality.
    Thanks Thikpad!!

  19. Yang Zhou on October 30th, 2010 5:40 pm

    I like ThinkPads because they are elegantly bland, and because I know I can count on them working though whatever I may throw at them.

  20. Manju on October 31st, 2010 8:42 am

    I have used a company provided T61 for the past three years. I have used it work, personal use, gaming, movies and everything. Till date, I have had absolutely no issues. It’s very very ROBUST. It has had a few falls and bumps.The thinkpad keypad, the thinkpad traclpad and multi touch touchpad, I could go on and on. And now when I want to buy a laptop for personal use, I look at the best in the market. I weighed in both the Mac book PRO and the T510/W510 and I could never think of buying a Mac book. The thinkpad wins outright!

  21. tao fan on October 31st, 2010 9:43 am

    I love think t series. Laptops of this series is portable, light, and steady. It retains the old style of thinkpad, which I love the most, with a stable performance in daily life. Not just for businessmen, even for students, like me, t410 is still a perfect choice. The price of t410 is more compatitive with other t series laptops, especially the i7 web one.
    anyway, I like this blackbox. I wish to have one t410.

  22. Peng Liu on October 31st, 2010 1:17 pm

    Except my first laptop, all my other laptops are ThinkPad. I love Thinkpad because it’s tough, stable, long life time and the appearance is classic. I hope I could win the T410. T series is the most classical series in ThinkPad, it has a large screen, excellent desgined keyboard and powerful inside configuration… All of these pefect fit for almost everyone’s needs. I wish I could have one.
    The laptop I am useing now is X201s, it’s a very nince machine expect the screen is a little small, my eyes will be a little bit hurt if I kept looking at the screen for a long time.

  23. Ji Fan on October 31st, 2010 7:39 pm

    I like thinkpad because of its amazing quality. After twice drops from a 1.5 meters (more or less) desk and once washed with a cup of coffee, my thinkpad x200 is still alive and everything works well. And this make me trust thinkpad. I should thank thinkpad for the excellent hard disk protection technology to save my data and my PhD thesis. My next laptops will absolutely be thinkpad, the forever “little black”.

  24. Valters on November 1st, 2010 3:50 am

    I like their design and durability and features they have! The way they keep design throughout generations is great, unlike Dell or HP, who change their design once in couple of years.

  25. Tomasz on November 1st, 2010 9:35 am

    I love Thinpads, because they are so simply beautiful designed, they have the minimum that one on the outbox, no shiny covers, no glare screens, just a computer, that doesn’t give you a headache when you see all the shiny covers and glary touch buttons, blinking lights like a christmas tree. Using thinpads makes you feel like a pro. Thinkpad computers are made out of solid materials so when hold one in your hands, you feel that it won’t break apart.
    I like especialy the tablet version of thinkpads. Simple to it’s thing ;)

  26. Jason on November 1st, 2010 4:37 pm

    ThinkPad is a name that carries with it the ideals and motivation behind the black bento box. Imbued with unconventional beauty and unspoken functionality, it is truly an excellent laptop and digital companion. Personally owning a T400, I have experienced a narrow gamut including a T60, T510, X61 and X100e. Each one is rugged, durable, and stands up to day-to-day use without question. My T400 has seen more than it’s fair share of bumps and bruises, and is still the workhorse it was the day I unpacked it. The strength of ThinkPads and their conservative yet stylish and attractive design are what gives ThinkPads the crowning excellence as a laptop.

  27. Joe Mastro on November 1st, 2010 11:44 pm

    As a professional server technician I am forever on the road travelling between server closet to server closet. No other notebook computer can handle the task of being contantly travelling, opened up, put away, balancing in one hand and doing it in stride like a Lenovo Thinkpad. I currently use an L412 and I sadly had to retire my T60 due to screen damage, keyboard damage and broken hard drive enclosure. The problems with my T60 may sound terrible, but it served me well for almost 4 years with 712 charge cycles on the battery. Salvaging what I could from it I now have put some of the better parts (ie T7200, RAM, WWAN, etc) into a Lenovo R60 a have laying around my home.

    The difference between the build quality of the R60 and the L412 is considerable. The R60 feels more like my T60 did, but is certainly showing it’s age and my L412 isn’t suitable for the ‘in-the-trenches’ work I do daily. I need a rugged, powerful, dependable and stylish notebook that I can use to “eat my own dog food” with my clients in representing what differentiates business class from consumer class equipment.

  28. Peter on November 2nd, 2010 11:01 am

    I have had a 755CD, a 600, an R51 and now a T60. All have been excellent computers. The T60 runs 20 hours a day without a crash. But now it is time to upgrade the excellent T60 to a T410 so let me win it.

  29. Vijay on November 3rd, 2010 1:23 am

    ” Think ” what You Think….? ThinkPad I Love ThinkPAD Because I’m a fan of the intelligent engineering and durability that characterize the ThinkPad line. The ThinkPad is literally head-and-shoulders above everyone else in this department. and thats why i Like Thinkpads Classic Design .
    and Specially Like Lenovo says its not like every other chiclet (For Keyboard)

  30. jiayanlu on November 3rd, 2010 4:52 pm

    I like Thinkpad’s business style cause I’m a business style person. I love the classic design but great parameters, substantial machine.

  31. Ali Reza Sharghi on November 4th, 2010 12:45 am

    I love Thinkpad because it is durable, quite, stable. I don’t worry about keeping it on continuesly during a day , a week or a year.But recently I’ve heard bad news about trade of durable and user-friendly features in (professional line) thinkpad. I mean tank-property given to this kind of laptops is decreasing and on the other hand good ports of eSATA, Hdmi, … added .

    However I still love Thinkpad. (forgot me because of my weak english)

  32. Yicaoyimu on November 4th, 2010 6:19 pm

    My father has a T60 and that’s model of real Thinkpad. I long recognized Thinkpad as a serious coputer users’ product, not something that just has a good looking or something just used to show off. I currently thinking about buying a T410 to transit from a not-so-serious computer user to a real computer science major. There’s no second choice!

  33. Andrew on November 5th, 2010 6:44 am

    Thinkpads are durable and engineered well. My T30 lasted over seven years. My current four year old X60s is still going strong. Both machines had linux installed on them because Thinkpads use hardware that is compatible with other operating systems. In contrast, my employer has never provided me a Thinkpad, and I almost always have problems with notebooks from other manufacturers. The classic black construction of the Thinkpad is iconic. Thanks to lenovo for keeping up the reliability of the brand.

  34. Jameson on November 5th, 2010 3:04 pm

    I love my T400 Thinkpad. It’s been 2 years and I haven’t had a problem with it so far. I use it mainly for work so I need a reliable notebook. I’ve been through Toshiba’s, Dells, HPs and nothing comes close to the reliability I get from my Thinkpad. My next notebook will definetely be a Thinkpad.

  35. linyang on November 6th, 2010 1:27 pm

    Thinkpads is the first laptop I used. I think it is the professional one. It is durable and stable. I like the “Thinkpad” brand, its keyboard, its style and almost all of the Thinkpad. My T60 had retired and I think T410 is the best for me. I hope I can get it!

  36. Jason on November 7th, 2010 1:06 am

    My dad used a ThinkPad for work some years ago, and I got to try it out from time to time. I really liked the sturdy construction and the professional look, and wanted to have one of my own some day.

  37. Shawn on November 7th, 2010 11:55 am

    I have owned a T20, T43, T60, and most recently a T400 and I have been happy with every one of them. I have handed down each model as I upgrade and they are ALL still running great. I love the durable no-nonsense design and I ave been very impressed with all of the new innovations that have come to the T line while still keeping the same great classic style and functionality. Upgrade to an SSD and LED backlit screen and enjoy serious battery life improvement.

  38. Zachary Alex Stern on November 7th, 2010 5:44 pm

    I love Thinkpads because they’re unbreakable. We have a stack of old thinkpads in my office, some as old as 10 years, that just keep on chugging.

  39. Almond on November 8th, 2010 2:02 am

    simple, sturdy and can last for years..the desing is quite impressive that no one else to other’s edition and other carrier brand like lenovo offers reasonable price for reasonable people..compact and powerful..very basic instinct and user-friendly. i like this laptops and i always use this im my office. and neighbor also choose this type of machines.

  40. Shashidhar on November 8th, 2010 5:45 am

    Thickpad is like hard metal box more life, durability And worlds best design forever. I like it too, i had used Dell latitude but it looks different design and quality.Thanks for Lenovo

  41. LeiWang on November 8th, 2010 8:27 pm

    I have already used 2 Thinkpad laptops till now, one is several years ago the X61 and the one now use R400 . I pay a lot of attention to thinkpad since it was IBM and now it is lenovo which the good service is also provided by IBM. I like this thinkpad so much and I want to change to a T410 since the beginning of this year, as T410 is very powerful with the classic design in screen frame and a good protection of hard disk. Also, what I like in thinkpad is its robust body with comfortable keyboard. What I like best is its almost silent fan. It is impossible since I have compared and used other laptops as DELL and HP.
    The service is also very good since I have called IBM to change my adapter in a rapid time and good quality.
    No other brand and laptops can satisfy me now. Since I am a fan in thinkpad and I buy the ultrabay staffs also ,then I configure my thinkpad with two hard disks with still silent fan, I am so pleased and love thinkpad.
    I want to get a new serial of T410 if I change for the newt laptop.

  42. Jeremiah on November 9th, 2010 11:40 am

    Thinkpad – for those of us who value the engineer over the Ad exec. An american tradition, made in China.

  43. Khaled Monsoor on November 10th, 2010 3:11 am

    when I think professionalism in computing, the first word comes to my mind is “ThinkPad”
    and if i think of all the ThinkPad awesomeness in a single package but with a minimum price tag, T410 comes to my mind.

    But, I am yet to experience the experience of ThinkPad; but when I considering for a new laptop, which will assist me in my professional life in a robust way rather than giving pain time to time; which will protect my data even giving its own ‘life’; which will serve me to the edge. I have done a whole lot of studying reviews, market status, professional image, and all the pros and cons.

    The summary is, “Yes, ThinkPad 410″

  44. salwa on November 10th, 2010 8:37 am

    i like how it looks it’s really profissional, and what i need is a labtop which can servive my 2 years old kids, who are realy realy unpredictable. so I’m sure lenovo thinkpad is going to handle it.

  45. Ruby Vanadino on November 11th, 2010 12:08 am

    Saya sudah melihat ThinkPad T410 di pameran komputer “Indocomtech” di Jakarta (Indonesia) awal November 2010 lalu. Dengan bercermin pada spesifikasinya, saya rasa notebook ini sangat cocok untuk dunia pekerjaan saya di perdagangan berjangka (futures market). Dalam kaitanya dengan hal tersebut dibutuhkan notebook dengan performa tinggi seperti thinkpd T410 agar aktifitas analisa harga dibursa bisa berjalan dengan sempurna.
    Selain untuk aktifitas pemantauan harga dan transaksi di bursa berjangka, juga sangat diperlukan untuk kebutuhan presentasi dengan ms power point. Dan yang cukup penting adalah ntuk kebutuhan web designing serta penggunaan aplikasi corel draw dan Photoshop.
    Walaupun layarnya tidak sebesar T510, namun sangat membantu aktifitas harian dan bisnis yang saya tekuni.

    I love Thinkpads and have been using them for 15 years mainly because when I type on it’s keyboard, it makes me feel like I am one with the computer and in turn helps me think with clairity and efficiency as well as enhancing my ability to remember and understand what I am trying to learn and comprehend. I am currently using a Thinkpad T61 and I would love to win a Thinkpad T410.

  48. Curtis on November 13th, 2010 11:29 am

    i first used Thinkpad laptop when i was in college. well actually it was my first. I loved it the first time and even love it more seeing how the newer models. i think what i used was the classic Thinkpad, was really fast to me then, loved the trackpad and also the simple design it had but really durable.
    I’m into wed design and i think the brand new ThinkPad T410 will definitely by the right choice for me. I love THINKPAD.

  49. Chee on November 13th, 2010 1:48 pm

    In my case, it is kind of unusual. I have owned Dell laptops all my known laptop age life.Though my easiest desktop in college was an IBM one (which still works even now!!!). Anyway, I was totally upset with DELL for their customer services that I told them that I will not buy another DELL from them. So, I am true to my own words, I switch to Thinkpad. I have not used a THINKPAD yet but I heard a lot of good things about Thinkpad, in fact I recommended my good friend to Thinkpad and I helped her to purchase one in July 2010. She previously owned one Dell and two HPs laptops. She disliked all of them. I have been checking with her, and she just loved her Thinkpad T510. Well, I have just purchased a T510 myself and am looking forward to using it. I have full confidence that it is going to be a wonderful experience from all the Thinkpad loyal users’ comments!!!

  50. guannan Jiang on November 13th, 2010 2:08 pm

    I started to use thinkpad from the very beginning with R60, and I loved it! The design was perfect, whether shape, color, or keyboard, and I stick to thinkpad from that time on. I love the trackpoint, it is easy and fast. I even would prefer a thinkpad with only trackpoint and no touchpad! Now I have got the newest T410 with the highest configuration. I think it is perfect for business people, students, housewives…all kind of people~
    I love thinkpad!

  51. Collin Clark on November 13th, 2010 8:52 pm

    I have always been a big fan of the ThinkPad brand since I was in seventh grade. I was looking for a laptop to use for my school work and surfing the web( I started looking at Dell Latitudes) but one day when I was at school something completely changed my mind. I saw the teacher’s laptops at school and I wanted to know how IBM ThinkPads were. So after school I immediately looked up IBM on the computer and from then on I was hooked. I bought my first ThinkPad in the summer of 08. It was an IBM ThinkPad R51, it needed a TON of work done on it but I got it fixed and used it for a while. Eventully after a few months it broke and I bought another R51 that eventully got a virus. I decided to sell both of my old ThinkPads to save up for a new one. So in December of 09 I ordered a Lenovo R500, which I used for 10 months and then I decided to downgrade to an IBM R52 which I am using now. The reason I want a T410 is I was never able to afford any type of T series laptop. I really wanted a T400 when it first came out but I didn’t have enough cash at the time so that is when I had to go with a cheaper laptop (R500). I will ALWAYS use ThinkPads, I am planning on starting a business when I get older and I will be buying all ThinkPad laptops for my employees to use. Thank You ThinkPad!

    I love the thinkpad design of angular stable, healthy, ibm own nature. represents a different level People when holding a laptop thinkpad.toi ever used it on the internet but I still watch each day, each minute track time, planned to get it, this is posted My very long dream, I loved it from first sight, sometimes I see several people wounded thrashing, throwing my laptop .. feel so sorry

    really in a poor country, with low-income thinkpad is a my dream forever, even if not enough money to language learning, college tuition and schoolfee.

    When it come to laptop, there’s a lot of choice and It’s very hard to decide which one to buy. There’s many famous brand like HP, Dell, Sony and new model come out all the time. When I had to buy a laptop for my brother I have burned my eye reading through all the reviews for a long time but due to budget I just got an Acer. However I know about IBM/Lenovo and their superb T series laptop. But because the prices in 2008 is extremely high, it was beyond our reach. I still can bought a second hand T43 laptop after the prices has become reasonable and just to have some experience with T series Thinkpad. After using it for a while I have to admit that Thinkpad T series is really really the best in its class, amazing keyboard, sleek design and rock solid. Somebody said they look boring but I like it that way. Now my T43 is used by my parent because it’s outdated and can not run smoothly for my computing demand and I am using my brother Acer. This Acer get hot easily and its keyboard is not on par with Thinkpad keyboard and I’m looking for a new laptop. And of course it definitely has to be T series this time and the next time also :>.

  55. Hui XU on November 17th, 2010 2:15 am

    I love thinkpad for its classical and charming appearance. I love its black color. I love its little cute redcap. The most important, thinkpad offers me great security for my information and my data. It protect my important information from losing. So thinkpad is so kind so nice and so important to my life!

  56. Wilbard Nd Nuuyandja on November 17th, 2010 6:19 pm

    Never owned Thinkpad but am eager to have it. My lectures use it most, I see it in business offices. Thinkpad can be judged by look that is a computer built to last and to conquer technology and digital works. I really want to win Thinkpad T410 or buy to use it for studying and processing my Geophysical data for industrial use.

    I want to experience what I missed about Thinkpad. I want to taste what Thinkpad owners have been enjoying. Am impressed by its pads of moving pointer making job done fast, easy and simple. I like its well hard case for protection and nice design not as toys, that make it unique from other unnecessary fancy computers. My lectures and friend who own Thinkpad convinced me that is a reliable computer with impressive technology and money worth.

    I can’t wait to own Thinkpad T410

  57. Qing Song on November 17th, 2010 8:52 pm

    I use thinkpad T40 for 4 years. It is very stable. Though it is old , after adding another memory bank, it can run faster than some labtops which are bought by my friend nowadays.
    I like its keyboard which is very comfortable.
    I want to get a new T410 for my boyfriend. He will come to US, but he has not a labtop. I hope he will like thinkpad like me.

  58. Xiaoyu Dong on November 17th, 2010 11:50 pm

    I had a T61,it was awesome,I ove its perfect screen which made my eyes extremely comfortable .And T61 had very good performance.It gave me a very good time and a lot of envy in my college .I gave it to my sister 3 months ago,and now I need a new THINKPAD.

  59. Yanfung on November 18th, 2010 2:36 am

    Nothing more need to say,just love it! But if you want, it is a fantastic work of art, though it was hard for me to buy another now(along with me for years, my T43 was dead eventually?),so I come to try my fortune.
    Unfortunately I haven’t noticed that guys in China cannot join this in the beginning, that was your email to make me here again.
    It’s a torment to me to write this that my english was not as good! If someone found mistakes about my work, would you please tell me

  60. Ying Guo on November 19th, 2010 7:05 pm

    My previous laptop is thinkpad and it is still doing a good job. I have never come across any problem for more than 4 years. Now, I am considering buying a new laptop for my cousin as a gift. Again, I would like to buy thinkpad. I hope the reliability will carry on~

  61. Bobo on November 20th, 2010 7:38 pm

    it is better than hp, dell, andd all types of business laptops. enough said.

  62. Julia McReynolds on November 21st, 2010 10:18 am

    I have never had a Thinkpad, but I read a review that said they are the best….so that is why I want one. When I make a purchase, I like to do the research to be sure I am getting a quality product…and I believe Lenovo has come up with many with Thinkpad.

  63. Chao on November 21st, 2010 4:44 pm

    I am using one thinkpad x200 now. it works well. I need another more powerful one. Thinkpad will be my option. One important reason is that it is owned by Levono, a Chinese company, although it use be belong IBM. As an Chinese aboard, this is what I can do, buy Chinese merchants as possible. It is sad to see here more people are using mac or dell.

  64. Syed Jafri on November 21st, 2010 10:58 pm

    ThinkPad when you really think what comes to your mind the first laptops the best of the class. I tried HP Dell and everything but once an IBM it comes back to IBM, now get me the think pad.

  65. Howard on November 22nd, 2010 2:25 am

    T series is with no doubt a perfect mode for business pro.
    I’m using T410 for years, and also recommend lots of colleagues and friends to choose thinkpad brand and T series mode.
    For me, the solid quality and good reputation counts, that’s why I chose to buy T410 for myself.
    I hope I can win this competition, and I will keep let others it’s really worth it!

  66. angelo on November 22nd, 2010 8:36 am

    i had differents notebook,than i changed with think pad (t60) finally i got the best amazing notebook i^ll would never change

  67. Sathyam Babu on November 22nd, 2010 11:30 pm

    When i am working in IBM.. i have worked on ThinkPad lp.. it gives more comfort than other laptops. Mainly that key board.. left click and Right click buttons..

  68. Daryle on November 23rd, 2010 11:43 am

    Thinkpads are tough. I am a teacher and I want a X201 Tablet so I can illustrate math for students.

  69. Jerome Paladino on November 23rd, 2010 4:39 pm

    My first Thinkpad was a T23 and after eight years I finally sold it in perfect working condition. Yes there was a shine on the keyboard and palm rest from nearly everyday use, but it works as good as the day I bought it. I still have an x32 that I use regularly. I have just ordered a T410 which I am excited to receive.
    Why Thinkpads? Well first and foremost it’s about the track point and the keyboard. A close second is the build quality which makes them so durable. I also like the simple purposeful design as opposed to some of the flashy and trendy designs of some other manufacturers. Another reason would be the parts availability and supportive community that buying into a commercial quality brand gives you. I have always had to pay a premium for my Thinkpads, less so with the T410 which was on sale and competitively priced, but it has always been worth it in the long run. I hope that Lenovo keeps quality first and foremost in the Thinkpad brand. Because quality is what the word Thinkpad has come to mean.

  70. Ryan on November 23rd, 2010 4:52 pm

    Last year I began researching replacements for my aging Fujitsu Lifebook 7020D and my wife’s IBM T42. After several months, I closed in on the Lenovo’s and took a leap of faith. Lenovo has kept the tradition of a solid, well-balanced business laptop alive. We now both have T400 series laptops and I’d love to upgrade to the new T410 and give my T400 to my brother-in-law. He’s using an even older IBM ThinkCentre and wants to un-tether himself from the basement.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a new T410!

  71. Qiaofu Zhang on November 23rd, 2010 6:58 pm

    I am using Thinkpad X201. It’s so powerful that I totally drop my former one. As a graduate student, I have lots of work to do with my computer. The simple outlook of Thinkpad and fast start give me a happy beginning of my whole day studying and working. With Thinkpad, I do not need to wait a long time for computing with matlab any longer, which always drove me into crazy before. After school, I can play computer games smoothly, as well as watch HD movies, which gives me a happy end of my busy day. It’s TERRiFiC.

  72. Alexey on November 23rd, 2010 10:02 pm

    Has been working with Thinkpad laptops since mid-nineties – from when the butterfly keyboard was introduced. Trying other laptops from time to time but nothing comes close to legendary IBM quality – so far these are still the toughest and the best machines on the market. I am happy that Lenovo did not disappoint. T-series is the best of all.

  73. Stacy Blondin on November 24th, 2010 9:52 am

    I am proud to be entering this contest on my IBM T40 laptop purchased way back when in the year 2003. It is the first and only computer I have ever owned; I affectionately nick-named it “T.B.”, keeping it’s first initial and giving it my last. Needless to say, I am personally attached. I have never had a SINGLE problem with it and brag about that fact to all my friends and family members. After nearly 8 years, I think they are tired of hearing about it …
    Sadly, the time has come for an upgrade and I absolutely refuse to buy any other computer brand. Who could give up that wonderful red dot in the center of the keyboard?!?! However, as a Public Health graduate student with more debt than I know what do with, I cannot currently afford one and am, hence, hoping to win this one! THANK YOU!

  74. David Huang on November 25th, 2010 1:52 am

    The T410 series is an excellent model and perfect for school, business, and personal use. The battery life is excellent and the specs are just as superb. I haven’t owned a Thinkpad before, but my friend has one and loves to brag about it all the time.

  75. Yilong Zhang on November 26th, 2010 1:08 am

    I do not have one thinkpad until my friend give his T42 to me. I have to say T42 is really a good notebook. To me this brought to me the Thinkpad impression. It works deligently without a sound. I am planning to buy a new T410S to substitute the veteran T42.

  76. Ahmed on November 26th, 2010 2:08 pm

    Realy, i love this type of product, it is eas to work with.
    I use to take this my thinkpad laptob when ever I go. it is fantastic .. i have nothing to say more.

  77. Waseem on November 28th, 2010 6:30 am

    I love the thinkpad all series specially T Series and X Series cause it is strong machines and had great design and it is amazing for professional users
    the design of thinkpad it is have somthing defferent about other laptops
    Really it’s strong, secure and power full…

  78. Daniel Ospina on November 28th, 2010 6:36 am

    I first had to chance to try a x60 tablet in my last job, and right away I felt in love with it! Versatile, robust, reliable, fast, great keyboard, and the trackpoint… So now I decided to invest on a x201 tablet. It should arrive anytime soon!! If I wasn’t so crazy about a convertible laptop I would’ve bought the T410, it’s quite an awesome machine. I would love to surprise my sister with a gift like that.

  79. weixin on November 28th, 2010 9:52 am

    Thinkpad laptop has a quite high quality. I bought a x200 last year. Last month, I dropped the laptop on the ground accidentally. But when I picked it up, ha ha, it’s still working. So I believe thinkpad.

  80. AMIR on November 28th, 2010 12:21 pm

    T40 that I have been using thinkpads, though they were super expensive at that time. thinkpads are designed for people, with silent keyboards, nice keyboard lights and steady structure.

  81. Zane on November 28th, 2010 10:22 pm

    T410 would be too heavy if heavier and too weak if lighter. It’s a perfect balance between weight and performance.

  82. Aaron Vasquez on November 29th, 2010 12:14 am

    I am a college student with an r500. This thing is built like a TANK! It’s been through so much abuse and continues to chug along. I would really be happy with a t410 though. I take my laptop to class everyday, but the size of this thing makes it a little inconvenient.

    After using a Thinkpad, I don’t think I could ever switch to any other laptop (yes, I have tried macs, but still find them to be of lower quality than Thinkpads!)

  83. Ivaylo Cvetanov on November 29th, 2010 7:54 am

    I love Thinkpads because they’re unbreakable.Thinkpad computers are made out of solid materials so when hold one in your hands, you feel that it won’t break apart.I love thinkpad!

  84. baijian Wu on November 30th, 2010 5:29 pm

    I love thinkpads for 1 ,their reliability, they seem never broken, friends around which use other brands of laptops never stop to meet some small or big problem… I never meet those. 2, comfortalbe keypads.3 high performance-prize ratio although I felt a little bit expensive the first time bought R50 several years ago. Totally I have bought 3 thinkpads, a R50 several years ago. a T400 in 2009 and X201 this year for my girfriend. I didn’t ,. also don’t plan to ,buy other brands of laptops because I am very pleased with them.

  85. xinle on November 30th, 2010 8:48 pm

    I have been using a R61i, which is my first laptop, for more than two years, but I want to change to a new one now. I think it is very quiet, and reliable, especially reading a CD. Recently although it has some problem with the fan, I still want another Thinkpad. It is really good and convenient to use, I like it!

  86. Madhusudhan on December 2nd, 2010 3:46 am

    I just love thinkpad..the name on the laptop..something uniqueness and special.
    And it works good that’s why love the thinkpad.

  87. shanmukhan on December 2nd, 2010 6:37 am

    1. It is durable, my friend is using T60 since last 5years and it is working so good.
    2. I like T510 with discrete graphics, it is good for entertainment and mainly good for office work.
    3. It’s keypad, touchpad and thinkcentre are very good.
    4. It has a very good battery backup.
    5. But when compared to W510 it got less cache memory. W510 is having > 6M where as T510 is having > 3M

  88. Chao Yu on December 2nd, 2010 8:19 pm

    I love ThinkPad T Series, because it is very strong and fast.It also have great design and it is amazing for all users.ThinkPad T Series computer is the prince in all computer family.It is noble and elegant.ThinkPad T Series is the legend in the computer world. I am dreaming to have a IBM ThinkPad T Series computer for a long time.

  89. K S DATTATRI on December 2nd, 2010 8:38 pm

    Being an educationist note book is inseperable part of routine.I was tuned to use Acer note book three years back.I felt that it is an odd match for me because of its size and looks and also weight.It troubled me when multiple tasks are given.Then
    I got Dell notebook from the company but I stopped carrying this due to its many short comings and capabilities.Finally I have desided to go for ipad which can challege my brain where ever i go and it is my cute companion next to my wife

  90. cw on December 2nd, 2010 9:53 pm

    The Thinkpad is a sterling example of reliability, servicability, configurability and durability. These timeless machines are proof that great design will always be seen in a superior product. Others come and go, but these last and last and only get better with the passing of time. My daughter wants a laptop, I want her to have the best. These laptops are a proven commodity that are worth their weight in gold. Sure, they may cost more ,but, you will come to realize that you actually received more for your money down the road. Why use anything else but a Thinkpad?

  91. Jeff Lin on December 3rd, 2010 8:23 am

    Because Lenovo makes the best laptops in the world!

  92. yuanjian shao on December 3rd, 2010 9:45 am

    T410 is the best one of my favorite laptops. I have ever bought a nother type. I like its 14′ screen and it is very convinience, I like it cpu, and it is very fast, and like it’s shape, and it looks very satisfied, and I like it keyboard, it is very smoothy to use. I like it , I want to owe one….

  93. Wei Su on December 3rd, 2010 11:39 pm

    Actually I’m using R61i right now. Based on my experience, Thinkpad has perfectly inherited from IBM which could be thought as stable and classical laptop product in the world. I’m an IT specialist, so I can guarantee the quality and performance could be the best one. For instance, Mac could be the fashion one for ordinary guys, however, for professional ones, Mac can hardly be used in the professional field especially in the network configuration and poor working environment. I’m looking forward to get my second Thinkpad T410, because that could be my favorite laptop — T series(Most professional representative) .

  94. Monias on December 5th, 2010 6:53 pm

    I love Lenovo ThinkPads, as I need a fast and reliable machine, the Lenovo x200 is a beautiful piece of engineering and is extremely fast and lightweight. I would warmly recommend that machine for people who are serious about quality, speed and reliability for others!

  95. Erick on December 7th, 2010 12:48 pm

    Why do I love thinkpads? Aside from their specs they are a reliable platform for me to work on. Anywhere. They withstand most wear and tear that would have destroyed any other notebook. Even in the looks department they thwart the competition. A thinkpad is a strangely relaxing sight be it your coffee table when you get home from work your hotel room’s bedside stand or your dorm. Effeminate Macs, Poser HP’s and Bearmode Dell’s will never beat a Well Built Thinkpad.

    P.S. There isn’t a more satisfying feeling than walking into a Starbucks with a Thinkpad. The rage man, The rage.

  96. Ian Orford on December 8th, 2010 11:12 am

    Awesome Erick, shear poetry!

  97. Sira on December 9th, 2010 6:17 am

    I have been using a thinkpad for 5 years now. And I cannot think of a single instance that I have been let down! Its unbelievable. I have made it do insane things – run applications like crazy. Used it in wet conditions and hot weather. I have run with it to catch a bus, and even dropped it on the way. I have dirtied the keypad with untold bits of food, drink and what not.

    Sure, I have put it through hell. But more than any of this, I had my Lenovo with me when I interviewed for my first job after my postgraduation. It was on the Thinkpad that I saved the first pictures and videos of my nephew, who means the world to me. The most memorable and important moments and documents of my life were on the Lenovo hard drive alone before backup drives became common.

    Looking back, not having backup was insane. But the Thinkpad never once crashed, never once let me down. And for this, I remain forever grateful to the great people who brought the Thinkpad to us. Thanks guys. You rock!

  98. Sobur Jalari on December 11th, 2010 5:54 pm

    Hello Lenovo!! Your lover’s here!! :) I’m sorry if my english isn’t good to read :) I hope you understand about what i wrote here hehe.. :p
    I’m from Indonesia. I’m 24 years old. I think I loves “Lenovo ThinkPad” since my first visit to Lenovo’s website. I choose country/region which i thought i can watch and also combining all varied specs from Lenovo’s notebooks. I download almost all video of its products. I come and i come again to this website and always say, “I want you!! I should get you someday!!”.

    I saw something different between Lenovo and the other brand. It’s true!! on this ThinkPad products, i always dream about ThinkPad W Series. Beacuse It’s really cool and looks powerful and also classy (High Class) :D

    W701ds, I really love this one. With Wacom pen-touch and hi-tech pantone color calibration. Also I loves the Second monitor that i can’t found yet at others brand except Lenovo. But maybe it only just my dream for now, because i should collect so much money. I think I should have +2 years long to coolect money to get this super-cool stuff :) But I always optimistic, someday i will get it :)

    So, I should choose one step below W701ds, i mean Lenovo ThinkPad W510. I love to its simple design. With Intel Core 2 QuadExtreme (but still want Core i7) and also with superb graphic supports. I hope I will get it as soon as i can. After that, my life will change I thought :) Because my life will so bored without cool notebook in my hand.

    Ok that’s it.. I hope my dream will come true. So pray for me hehe ;) . I will get “ThinkPad” soon!! yeah :) You know.. I love this “ThinkPad” logo when i saw Lenovo ThinkPad notebooks. It looks like simple art design (I swear) :)

    Thank You

  99. Satyaprasad on December 11th, 2010 8:31 pm

    Nothing is like thinkpad and nothing beats thinkpad in performance, usability and reliability.

  100. miao on December 12th, 2010 3:55 am

    have used thinkpad for 12 years…the first one is 600E, then X22 T23 X60?the reason is thinkpad is the most reliable notebook with best design best quality and best service…keep going thinkpad…

  101. Ravi on December 13th, 2010 1:58 am

    This laptop is a perfect blend of best quality and performance, typically what needed for professional use and entertainment with its rich set of feature and performance. A best laptop from a student to a high end IT professional. Needless to say its a best laptop in the market.

  102. dragon on December 13th, 2010 2:28 am

    Think Pad T 400 is my first computer and it gives me a lot during my work and life. It is so stable that even I stay up for all night’s writing, the second day, I weak it up and it is still in the perfect way it runs before.
    I like it because it make me believe that it will always as it was.

  103. Elsa on December 13th, 2010 3:34 pm

    I used the ThinkPad T510. It was the best ever. I used it for all college work and job purposes. I can get a lot out of it , it had great performance and features. It is the most user friendly laptop I have used. I had the thinkpad T 510 twice. I used the first one for 3 years and the second for 2 years. It was great.
    The laptops I had used could have run longer. I dropped the first and thats the only reason I had to get a new one.
    Overall I love the thinkpads!

  104. Elsa on December 13th, 2010 3:37 pm

    I just wanted to correct what I had written. I had used the 410 i think. its not the 510. typo..sorrriee! :)

  105. MK Dhir on December 14th, 2010 5:15 am

    Thinkpad being ahead among all in technology and almost trouble free working.
    I like this being a no problem machine. Keep it up

  106. Ginger Steele on December 14th, 2010 5:16 pm

    I have been drooling over the Thinkpad T410 for months now. I’ve read practically every review, all of which have raved over this laptop as being the best choice for any small business.
    Currently my business uses a Lenovo PC, and now I need something portable, with superb graphics and the Thinkpad T410 offers everything I am looking for in a computer.
    Often I will show my customers images on my PC, but having a laptop would be better. Having another Lenovo product would be wonderful.

  107. he xiaoping on December 16th, 2010 1:06 am

    Thinkpad, a tool of my good work partner.what I like it was its best quality and performance.

  108. Michael D. on December 16th, 2010 1:13 am

    My brother has had a original Thinkpad 700 model since the mid 90′s and still has it this very day… working (though the operating system in a linux based system. He has a collection of Thinkpads including the more recent T510. The other models have all been relegated to the service of his children. Every business person that has had one has sworn by them that they have been nothing but a dream to carry. I have gone through business laptops Dell and HP and nothing compares to the durability of the Thinkpad. I would love to win a new T410 and carry on the family tradition. :)

  109. Elizabeth F. on December 16th, 2010 1:54 pm

    I have always thought the ThinkPads were a fantastic laptop, one of the very best! I have not been lucky enough to own one and after doing extensive research on laptops (even using the information found on this website!), I know I will be buying a ThinkPad as my next laptop. The quality, the performance, and the durability of the ThinkPad have won me over completely. I cannot wait to own one!

  110. Salutationz on December 16th, 2010 10:48 pm

    The Thinkpad t410 is by far one of the nicest and hardiest of the laptops. My brother has been a user of the Thinkpads and I have often used his laptops. He currently has the newer T510 and loves it and his oldest is the 70 series from when they first came out. The original is still working which says it all about the manufacturer and the line of Thinkpads.

  111. David on December 17th, 2010 6:20 pm

    I still have an old IBM ThinkPad 600 which I let my wife use occasionally. I repaired and upgraded a few things over the years, and it’s still running well for almost 15 years now. I also have a Lenovo 3000 N100 which I use almost 24/7 and still works fine. I also have a Lenovo Netbook, and I planned to purchase another ThinkPad soon to replace the old ThinkPad I had for years. They are one of my favorite brand becasue they are reliable. I hope I’ll win the ThinkPad drawing so I won’t have to pay for it ….. LOL.

  112. Michael on December 20th, 2010 1:05 am

    I have used my brother’s Thinkpad 70 and his T510. I would love to have a T410 of my very own to use. His Thinkpads are still running well and his kids are still using them to this day for educational purposes. I believe they are the best laptops.

  113. Ryan on December 21st, 2010 6:30 pm

    I have had multiple Thinkpads over the years and they just work. My old thinkpads have held up far better than my co-workers name brand laptops. The trackpoint feature is a pleasure to use. Far better than that other companys attempt. This is why I will never own anything but the best, a Thinkpad.

  114. Paul K on December 21st, 2010 9:38 pm

    From the day I started using my first Thinkpad(T21), I knew these were special machines: They resembled the F117 STEALTH FIGHTERS both in form and finish. And the features and performance was years ahead of its time. I also have a T40 which frankly is so solid that it will outlast us all. And I recently upgraded to the amazing X301…which even after two years, embodies the bleeding edge spirit of the Thinkpad brand. It’s simply not hard to grow passionate about a product that is, time after time, nearly perfect in every way while showing the other machines ‘how it’s done’..

    My wife is IBM employee and has beeing using Thinkad T410 for several years with no problem. A friend of mine is a ThinkPad fan and I ordered two ThinkPad for him – one used for his wife and one new for himself.
    My impression of ThinkPad is that it is well built and will last. Comparing it with other brands (they call those consumer brands), like comparing Norstrom with JC Penny.
    I need to buy one for my nephew soon as a college gift.

  116. ROHTASH on December 22nd, 2010 11:19 pm

    T410 is the NEXT one of my favorite laptopswhich i buy . Still i have Lenovo 3000 N200 my best note book till today but i need play 3 D game some time so i am planned to buy a net think pad T410 .The Thinkpad T410 is by far one of the nice of the laptops. My brother has been a user of the Thinkpads and I have often used his laptops. The original is still working which says it all about the manufacturer and the line of Thinkpads

  117. Nguyen Ha on December 23rd, 2010 8:16 pm

    I’ve ever had any laptop before.i heard many more imfomation about lenovo and i really i wish i have one.thanks!

  118. Han on December 24th, 2010 12:58 pm

    Thinkpads are the most stable laptop I ever used, they are really reliable

  119. Ricus Nieuwoudt on December 27th, 2010 2:28 am

    What is there to discuss about Laptops, when you have a need for a working machine there is ONLY 1 Laptop, and it is Lenovo Thinkpad!

  120. Robert on December 28th, 2010 1:10 am

    I have had my T42p since March 2005. I love it and Thinkpad laptops for the trackpoint, keyboard, matte finish, and reliability.

  121. Jowellyn on December 29th, 2010 4:34 am

    I love ThinkPad because of its performance and design and great quality.I KNOW its the best laptop out there! I used my uncle’s ThinkPad T61 for recording my own music and the quality it produced was alot better from previous laptops i used.But unfortunately he moved and took the laptop with him,now i dont have a laptop to record anymore:(.Im really sad and would love to win the ThinkPad T410.It is my dream to be a professional artist and i know a ThinkPad can make my dream come true.Thank You

  122. Gang hua on December 30th, 2010 2:32 pm

    Two days ago I just placed an order on ThinkPad website. The one I ordered is ThinkPad 410 with i5 core, 8GB memory and 512G hd drive.
    This is a really good boxing week deal, which I could save $900 in total.
    The configuration is what I’m looking for and the most important is the price is within my barget. I decided to buy thinkpad because I trust the brand. I believe it’s the best laptop and the quality should be great.

  123. calvin on December 31st, 2010 10:25 am

    the think pad sl510 is 1 of the easiest computers i have ever used i like everything about it.

  124. andrew on December 31st, 2010 11:53 am

    My wife and I have 4 thinkpad so far, R32, T23, T30, T42. We have been using it for almost 10 years and it convinced us with its reliability, durability and compatibility. We are planning to get a new T410 or X201 recently to continue this path, for best working experience and family pleasure.

  125. John on December 31st, 2010 5:00 pm

    I have used a T61 for work the last two years and appreciate it’s features…the roll cage when my ThinkPad cart-wheeled onto the pavement and started up without issue, the picture-frame protection as there is still no ‘snow’ on the screen after years of use, the TrackPoint has made me more efficient by not having to move my hand off the keyboard to move the mouse and the timeless matte black classic look.

  126. achmad fathoni on January 1st, 2011 10:18 am

    i take a part in this competition because i want to have thinkpad T 410i for few simple reason; 1. it’s professional spirit that every one can see from it’s design. in my opinion; laptop is not a fashion accesories, nor for swanky and playing “value your time and money, do not buy or use computer except it is necessary. so choose the right one; choose lenovo thinkpad t series”. 2. the chassis material is testedly and famously tough, using magnesium to cover up and down side. we can see also the two metals that hings monitor and the main body. 3. it’s spill resistant. 4. fast booting time.
    thinkpad t series is not only a computer or laptop. that’s why we like it. it’s reflect our mature, experienced, expert, and critical standard about laptop and even… any products should be designed. Let say congratulation to thinkpad T series engineers

  127. LI on January 1st, 2011 3:31 pm

    I have several friends who are using T410i now. All them find that is a great machine. I ordered Ideapad U160 recently, but it works not so good. I have returned it. I checked a lot of information and decide to get a Thinkpad T410. It got great comments from the users. It is my dream of the new year now to get a T410 or T410s.

  128. Dawn on January 2nd, 2011 2:22 pm

    Well to be honest I’ve never owned a ThinkPad but I think I might like to. I’ve been a mac user for many years, and felt the hardware was of good durable quality up until 2008 when I got my first mac that started falling apart. So now I’m looking for a new reliable brand – and a computer I can run Ubuntu on, do programming and multimedia work. On all the ubuntu forums ThinkPads come very highly recommended and I look forward to using a computer that has tough casing, is ergonomically designed and contains components that have been tested before being launched into the world.

  129. Yvon Gendron on January 2nd, 2011 8:13 pm

    I have used a Thinkpad at work ever since laptops first came out and have always used nothing else. I have shopped for other brands but nothing compares to it. They are sturdy and reliable. They may be more expensive, but in the long run they last longer, Thinkpad is a name I trust.

  130. Ayman on January 3rd, 2011 6:59 pm

    Upon Initial contact I had envisioned it to be quite the disgusting looking machine. However, as soon as I rested my wrists on the frame and let my fingers drizzle against the flush keys I fell in love. In a moment the reality of the thinkpad became all too clear. The design of the keyboard and touchpad is perfected for real users. The speed and functionality are unmatched. It is the perfect machine.

  131. Youxing Chen on January 4th, 2011 8:25 pm

    I am using a classic model: T41. It still works well now. But it is really too old to use some softwares, for example, photoshop. So I plan to have a new laptop. Certainly, thinkpad is my first choice due to the good quanlity. It is sturdy and the noise is very small. I hope I have my new laptop is also a classic model as famous as T41.

  132. Ashim Pathak on January 5th, 2011 8:01 am

    Why i like thinkpad? Actually i dont know. No other laptop impress me as much as thinkpads do. May be because i have always loved rugged and durable products. My love with thinkpads started when i first saw the model R52, after that i fell in love with the model R60 , then R400, T400, today all models are discontinued. e And even today i am dreaming of buying one, but still unable to afford one. I am chasing my dream of buying one thinkpad from the days of the early r52 till todays t410. Hope my dream will fulfill one day. Thank you..

  133. Paul on January 5th, 2011 6:45 pm

    Why do I love ThinkPads? I will give you one word. TrackPoint. I hate touchpads. Also, while other are taking their hands off of the keyboard to reach for their mouse or touchpad, mine stay on the keyboard. ALWAYS. Especially helpful for a coder like me.

    Why do I want to win a T410. T42. I am still using an old T42 and I sorely need an upgrade!

  134. Ashim Pathak on January 6th, 2011 1:05 am

    ‘Why I love ThinkPads! Actually i dont know. Its may be because of the reliability, ruggedness and the highest quality standards of thease machines. I have always loved rugged and durable products. I first fell in love with the Thinkpad R40, i have tried so much to buy one but at that time i was unable to afford one. Time gone by then came the R52 i tried again but again failed. Recently i fell in love with R400 and the T400 after trying so hard to buy one both models got discontinued stil cant arrange money to buy one. Till today i am dreaming of buying a ThinkPad, But due to my financial condition I may not be able to ever buy a ThinkPad. But i will never stop dreaming to buy a THINKPAD…..

  135. Wenhuo LIU on January 7th, 2011 3:15 am

    I am a scientist on geography, and often need to calculate a lot of data. I find thinkpad T410 which I am using now is very very quick and stable to run them and . I love it very much.

  136. William Gatti on January 7th, 2011 12:38 pm

    I became hooked on ThinkPads thanks to a company provided laptop where I worked. Now, ThinkPads are the only laptops I buy. They seem to be built to higher standards than other laptops I have used and they just keep working. I also repair laptops but I have almost never had to fix a ThinkPad. They have a reputation of quality for a reason and I’m glad to see that Lenovo is maintaining those high standards.

  137. sourabh on January 9th, 2011 10:40 pm

    I like ThinkPad because it presents a lifestyle the I am really into it. It’s a lifestyle of being serious about both work and fun. Never lose the focus on work but also enjoy the life. I have a T410 and I am crazy about it. I chose it when I bought it because its size suits my choice. Easier to be carried than T510 and better performance with i7 processor. I’m lovin it. It rocks.!!

  138. sundar on January 10th, 2011 2:39 am

    when i compare with other laptops this think-pad is very portable, good look, and the features also good.
    first time i say think-pad having my manager.that time also i decided to buy that type only.
    i love think-pad very much.

  139. sundar on January 10th, 2011 2:42 am

    i love think-pad very much.
    i don’t have think-pad.
    so i am not mentioning the model.

  140. Ryan on January 11th, 2011 5:22 pm

    I like Thinkpads because they are a tool, and they are designed to be a tool. They aren’t a fashion accessory or a status symbol; they are designed to get work done.

    The Trackpoint is an ergonomic success. I don’t have to move my hands from the keyboard, so I can stay in my work flow. It’s simple really, the hands should move a minimum of distance off of the home row.

    Alternative operating systems just work, and they last. Linux, FreeBSD, and OpenSolaris all work fine out of the box on my ancient R51, and they always have. After all the years of service, only the battery has worn out on my R51, and I still use it regularly.

  141. Petr Spirik on January 12th, 2011 8:41 am

    First Thinkpad for me was T43p – nice piece of equipment, but a bit bulky to carry around all day. I passed it away and it serves its new owner so far. Now I have both business notebook as well as personal netbook, none of its being Thinkpad, but I am going for either X201 or T410. Not sure which one, but most probably the X201 – portability wins over power. If it only is available with 1440×900 resolution…
    And the lenovo online shop has so many tempting offers right now – however I may wait for the leaked Sandy Bridge X220. Not sure yet.
    Or maybe I will win this one:)

  142. Stephanie Beguin on January 13th, 2011 8:08 pm

    I have used ThinkPads for the past 11 years, the most recent models being the T42p and now the T400. I am currently in the market to buy another laptop for (very) small business and personal use and while trying to stick to a tight budget, I am only looking at the ThinkPads predominantly for the durability (as other have mentioned), but also because I refuse to use anything other than the TrackPoint!!

  143. Aaron on January 14th, 2011 10:24 pm

    I have been using a ThinkPad T61 for the past year as I finish high school, and getting ready for college I am 100% sure I am going to get a new Thinkpad, as I am convinced they are the highest quality laptops available today. I have done a lot of tech work during my time at school, and am also employed by my town as an IT technician for the school department. I get to test out the new products, and our school has in the past couple years, been switching over to ALL lenovo desktops and laptops from dell, because the quality in lenovo is just there!

    I love thinkpads :D

  144. xiangliao on January 15th, 2011 7:47 am

    i like thinkpad. becasue it’s Lenovo products.

  145. sam chase on January 15th, 2011 4:14 pm

    Don’t think a computer is important? Think again! Think pads like the one I have , a T60P have served us all faithfully for many years. Mine is 5 years old and still a venerable asset to me in both the workplace and for play. The options out there for me to buy a computer certainly exist. But of those options how many have TP reliability and durability combined? The last thing I want to have when on the road is useability issues with my computer. I made the TP choice then and have not regretted it a bit. Looking forward to my next one even more!=)

  146. Ken Sikora on January 16th, 2011 3:19 pm

    The first laptop I had was the ThinkPad with the butterfly keyboard which was a very early ThinkPad design. Since that first laptop I have only used ThinkPads with one exception. The ThinkPad has always been a good design and a machine that could stand up to travel. I have flown over 1 million miles with one airline along and the ThinkPad has always been with me. I have used them all over the world. I don’t remember all of the models but the last few have been the T40, T42, T60 for business and now an Edge 14. I just have to have the Trackpoint. Until you have a ThinkPad you will not know what a good keyboard is! All of the ThinkPads I’ve had have been GREAT machines!

  147. Ariyan on January 16th, 2011 9:47 pm

    My first Laptop was Thinkpad R51e, i’ve been looking for a month to have a very good laptop, the laptop that i mean was looking strong, personal use and tough for working on it, when the first time i saw it, i dont want to see the another laptop, i know i have a right choose, Thinkpad be a #1 choise.

  148. Adrian Paleacu on January 17th, 2011 4:03 am

    I recently purchased a Lenovo Thingkpad Edge 14 with i5 configuration. Of all the laptops I’ve tried, I’ve never found a better keyboard. They hold up very well, and completely suit my needs in terms of: quality, reliability, design and brand.

  149. Adrian Paleacu on January 17th, 2011 4:04 am

    Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 14 :)

  150. yongqiang on January 18th, 2011 5:47 pm

    I have used ThinkPads for the past 4 years, the most recent models I am using is T61 and now the T400. I am currently in the market to buy another laptop for advance my former ones and while trying to stick to a tight budget, I am only looking at the ThinkPads predominantly for the durability and comfort, I am also a brand loyalty costomer of thinkpad, I like it.

  151. Bin Wang on January 19th, 2011 1:44 am

    I chose ThinkPad because its portability, quality build, performance, style, and reliability. All these features combined make ThinkPad the best class of laptops in the market. I had used X31, T41, T60, X61, and T61 in my work and daily life. ThinkPad is one of my favorite brands. Wish I could win this ThinkPad T410 for upgrade!

  152. Mohammad on January 21st, 2011 11:14 am

    The ThinkPad is there when i want, anytime anywhere and is powerful enough to run any anything i might require. It brings the ease of a handheld, the power of a desktop PC and the trendy style of a blackberry into a compact solution for business men like myself.

  153. C. Linneken on January 22nd, 2011 6:04 am

    The Think Pad T410 is what appears to be the perfect functional laptop built to be used in the field housing top quality components. A win win for comsumers looking for functionality and durability in a quality laptop.

    If I am the lucky winner of the Lenovo T410 I’ll be sure to give it a real-world workout by exposing it to conditions such as rain, snow, wind, sun heat, beach sand, dogs, kids, husbands, and occassional fumbles of my own. My T410 will be used for large databases, photoshop, producing and playing HD videos, etc.

    From the laptop research I have done the T410 is a top quality laptop beyond what other manufacturers have to offer! The best bang for your buck!!! Of course, the best deal in the world would be to win the Lenovo T410 for free! :D

  154. Paul Vincent on January 22nd, 2011 6:21 pm

    I’ve been using IBM Thinkpad R50e and Thinkpad T series model from 2004 till present and I’d say I am very comfortable in using the Thinkpad. I can tell with confidence that it’s useful for business applications and the configuration is extraordinary compare to the other machines. Now I am searching for greater performance Thinkpad.

  155. Hai Hoang on January 22nd, 2011 9:46 pm

    Hey, I’m now using a Lenovo T61 that was my first laptop in my life. I selected it by chance under brief guide of my brother in law. At that time (April 2008) this was a big decision for me. Now when looked back I feel that I had a right decision. My T61 has been along with me all over the world, under very different weather conditions but it has been still running very well. Further, to be honest, I had dropped it at least four or five times but so lucky that it still look okay. I’m not hesitate to buy another Lenovo in the future if I decide to have a faster one.

  156. Joon Kim on January 23rd, 2011 7:52 pm

    I have never owned a thinkpad but used a one before when I was in Junior high. I loved and still love the red tracker. I guess that is the main reason that I fell in love with thinkpad. Durability is my second one cause I am just clumsy person. If I somehow win this event I will recommend my friend to buy thinkpad instead of macbook.

  157. Ian Orford on January 24th, 2011 3:16 pm

    Thanks for your comments Ken. How do you like the Edge 14 in comparison to the ‘Classic@ ThinkPads?

  158. Alan on January 25th, 2011 2:27 am

    Laid my hands on my very first Thinkpad a couple years ago. It was a T43 and it was glorious! Loved the solid build! It was definitely built like a tank and still going strong. Many feel it is a boring look, but it’s clean and simple. No need for glossy finishes and I hope they never go in that direction! Trackpoint is the smartest invention on a laptop EVER! It’s very precise so I never waste time taking my hands off the home row, going to the mousepad, then going back to the homerow! Thinkpads are the best!

  159. Devender Kumar on January 25th, 2011 7:10 am

    I am loving this because of Ultimate looking, designing & performance.
    i am now using dell studio. but no satisfied. so i shall purchase this.

  160. andy on January 25th, 2011 2:57 pm


  161. Rob Corbett on January 27th, 2011 7:37 am

    Brilliantly designed, durable and dependable… I wouldn’t be without my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 14. Lightweight with lightning performance, its unique design and features work superbly on the road and have everything I want at home. That Thinkpad look and feel mean add an extra feelgood factor.

  162. Piotr Miszkiewicz on January 29th, 2011 9:33 am

    HI, I come from Poland.
    I study Electricity at Gdansk University of Technology and my ThinkPad T40 helps me in studying. I also really like exploring, thanks to my Think Pad I am always in touch with studies and my projects. My ThinkPad is part of me and the best PC I ever had..

  163. Ian Orford on January 29th, 2011 9:51 am

    Not quite long enough Andy!

  164. Simon Karpen on January 29th, 2011 3:57 pm

    Solid, sturdy basic black workhorse machines. I use a T410s for work and school day in and day out, and would like to win a T410 to replace an old Dell Inspiron that my daughter uses.

  165. bader on January 31st, 2011 6:39 am

    well I’ve been always wanting to have think pad because of the strong competitive technologies which can help me a lot in my work and because of the competitive prices I have used my friend’s think pad it was Awesome and i wanted to have it the light weight great looks , processing speed and quality was things of which attracted me and i think having it would make my life easier

  166. Venky on January 31st, 2011 7:31 pm

    I like thinkpad because they are sturdy, reliable and carry IBM legacy of best in class.

  167. Venky on January 31st, 2011 7:37 pm

    I like thinkpad because they are sturdy, reliable and carry IBM legacy of best in class I have carried a Thinkpad in all kinds of transportation rail, road and air and found it very rugged. They also work under any weather condition hot, humid, cold etc. I recommend it for all kinds of users.

  168. Bohus on February 1st, 2011 4:17 am

Thinkpads are the best!

  169. adele on February 3rd, 2011 5:21 am

    Well what can i say, i’m not going to blag my way and make up a reason, my laptop has packed up on me, and i desperately need a new one, and don’t have the money to buy one at the moment. So that’s it. The truth.

  170. Ross Keele on February 3rd, 2011 9:01 am

    Thinkpad how I love thee; let me count the ways ! In the most recent few years I have had the priviledge of using several of the Lenovo T-series for work. I have used the T60, T62 and T500 with much adulation and fondness. The frame and manufacture of the T-series notebooks is strong, reliable, and has a classic asthetic which says “integrity”. They keyboard is unsurpassed by any other poser, and is as much a joy to use as any external board could be. And the venerable TrackPoint ! An ergonomic marvel which allows one to maintain typing posture while deftly navigating and interacting with applications and the OS; a match made in heaven !

    I would like to win the T410 because I do not have a personal laptop computer and would LOVE to own such a professional and personally preferred technological marvel. The T410 is light weight and yet powerful. It would provide the mobility that I crave, and all the power that I would need to churn through my daily tasks, like email, web browsing, presentation development, and document preparation. The T410 would also be a reliable and efficacious partner for my personal projects and hobbies, such as photography, video editing, and saving virtual worlds from evil and chaos !\

    I know that the Thinkpad is a superior piece of technology which is well developed and well supported, and I would enjoy owning a T410 for myself. Cheers !

  171. Jimmy on February 3rd, 2011 4:09 pm

    I don’t want a new Thinkpad, my old T60 still works like a charm !! But my one year old son is too happy to play with it, so I thought : time for dad to get a new one. :)

  172. Michael on February 3rd, 2011 7:45 pm

    Thinkpad is simply another word for quality, and it is so good that it’s the only kind of laptops currently used in the International Space Station. So if it is good enough for the engineers working in outer space, it ought to be good enough for anyone on the planet Earth as well.
    And as a future computer engineer, I appreciate quality!

  173. Jonathan on February 3rd, 2011 9:46 pm

    To be completely honest, I have never used a Thinkpad, but I have always wanted one. Every Thinkpad notebook I have seen looks incredibly durable and built to last for a while, compared to 99% of all other notebooks and netbooks out in the market today, which is why I have resisted buying any for my Computer Science course which starts in the fall, however Thinkpads (of all series) are at the top of my list right now, and I am saving up until I can afford one, but if I could win one for free, then it would be amazing and definitely help out.

  174. Beverly Rojas on February 3rd, 2011 10:15 pm

    Since 2004 I’ve been using a ThinkPad T30. Is it a little out of date? Not when it comes to performance and reliability. That little darling is a workhorse, ever ready, never complaining, never balking, always ready to serve. I’m a very busy court reporter. My T30 never fails me. After years of traveling with me, it’s almost as if it’s smiling at me, begging for more work. It won’t be put to rest as there are thousands of hearings on its hard drive.

    I have full faith that a T410 will be as reliable a companion as the T30, and I intend to permit it to work as hard as the T30 was and is always eager to do. Please let that T410 have a loving new home.

  175. Tossy on February 4th, 2011 12:56 am

    I love ThinkPad because of its durability and performance. It won’t betray what I am expecting from. Another big reason is the TRACKPOINT!!! I won’t live without this pointing device for sure.

  176. Kristian hadist on February 4th, 2011 3:32 am

    T410 is better than R series, display so bright and quick responsive
    untl 2011 thinkpad is tho most laptop that we used, fashionable and so elegan,
    grid mouse pad, plus value
    think pad use by profesional, student and amateur.

  177. magiken on February 5th, 2011 4:57 pm

    I love thinkpad because it is very reliable, excellent support when you need it. The most important thing is they always update the drivers with new OS.

  178. Rune on February 6th, 2011 5:48 am

    I use Acer at home and it shuts it self down whenever it feels like it. I use thinkpad at work and there are no problems. I need thinkpad.

  179. andy kurniawan on February 6th, 2011 12:28 pm

    My R40 is almost 5 years old now and it’s still running like a champ! I initially got this Thinkpad because of hearing great reviews about it and I’m glad I made the right decision. First and foremost, I love the keyboard for its tactile feedback and durability! I can fully appreciate it since I type a lot, I mean A LOT, doing my job as a technical writer.
    Build quality is excellent! You’d be hard-pressed to find a comparable PC laptop solid construction close to Thinkpads. I bring my Thinkpad with me when traveling around all these years and never have any problems with it.
    It’s been a while and my faithful Thinkpad’s hardware is getting more and more out-dated by today’s software requirements. It’s time for me to get an upgrade. Then I stumbled upon this contest. I know my odds wouldn’t be easy considering there are millions Thinkpad fans out there, and seriously who wouldn’t want a Thinkpad? However for a newer, latest generation, Thinkpad I wouldn’t skip a heart beat to give it a shot. T410 has been the model I kept my eyes on and would be a perfect upgrade for me because of the screen size. It’s been proven that 14 inch is the perfect size for a laptop to me. On top of that it’s a Thinkpad, you can’t go wrong with it!

    I am a professor in industrial engineering. I preach quality and reliability to my students. Thinkpad laptops are the epitome of the things that I teach. These machines could withstand any abuse an engineer might put. Whether it might be 10,000 simulation runs, 3D CAD modelling, or simply teaching, I would only trust a Thinkpad laptop. I would definitely would want to have one.

  182. Rex on February 6th, 2011 3:17 pm

    I am a student, and have used the W500 thinkpad notebook for a year. Ever since, the laptop never have crashed on my watch. Kudos to the thinkpad brand! I would like to have a T410 since unlike the W500, the T410 does have a switchable graphics option, that would make me more mobile as a student.

  183. Maria on February 8th, 2011 8:55 pm

    I’ve only ever owned Thinkpads. I love their size, weight and portability (who else makes the same type of 14.1 inch screen these days?) I love the trackpoint that works better than any touchpad. The keyboard is comfortable. The machine itself is reliable, whether using it during a hot and humid rainy season in Japan or commuting with it during a Canadian winter on the train. I’ve been shopping around for a newer and faster computer in the past couple of weeks and I keep coming back to the Thinkpad. I wish I could win a new one!!!!!!

  184. Maria on February 8th, 2011 9:04 pm

    Oops, I forgot that to win I have to tell you that I use a Thinkpad T41 and want to win a Thinkpad T410. That extra “O” is going to make a big difference in my life as I want a faster machine to start playing with more graphic work and animation. Yeh!!!!!!

  185. Cullen on February 9th, 2011 9:08 pm

    Went from a T40 to T42, now on a T60 and want a T410S. Theyre bulletproof.

  186. Chris on February 10th, 2011 1:45 am

    The Thinkpad line delivers on the key factors I rely on in my photography business: customizability, excellent screens (resolution, color gamut and contrast), robust and powerful. They are tools that allow me to do my work quickly and accurately. That’s what matters to me and my clients. That is why I rely on Lenovo’s Thinkpad line.

  187. Shiyou Zheng on February 10th, 2011 2:51 pm

    I have two Thinkpad laptops. They are working well.

  188. Shiyou Zheng on February 10th, 2011 2:58 pm

    Thinkpad laptop is wonderful in my using of X60. I love it very much because they are sturdy, reliable.

  189. Lei Liu on February 11th, 2011 4:05 am

    I love ThinkPads because of their durability, security and classic. It is indispensable in daily life. You can use it to surf internet, FE simulation, 3D CAD modelling and so on.

  190. Patti Harski on February 11th, 2011 2:18 pm

    T30, T40, T60, T61, X201, Ideapad.

    Powerful and portable. Perfect.

  191. Xuan Zhao on February 12th, 2011 12:12 am

    I choose T410 due to its businees quality and sandard.

  192. asraful miah on February 13th, 2011 1:39 pm

    I want to win this thinkpad t410 because I want to show and prove to my mates who own macbooks what a truly inferior machine they own, plus I bought my first thinkpad which was the sl510 and if i can get me hands on a proper thinkpad i’d be delighted

  193. Robert on February 13th, 2011 2:37 pm

    My first ThinkPad was a model 701 with the butterfly keyboard. I’ve never owned a laptop that wasn’t a ThinkPad, for good reason: these laptops are built with the finest engineering and attention to detail. From my T42 to my T60 to my T400 (and hopefully my T420s when released), I’ve never had a reason to even consider a notebook computer from another manufacturer. ThinkPads are solidly built, and the customer service is second to none.

  194. Xian Liu on February 15th, 2011 12:42 am

    My thinkpad is T23,used it for 7 years,but it’s still work now.I like thinkpad very much,if it changed for many times.I hope T420/T520 will have a acceptable price,so I want to buy a new one.
    If I could Win a $1000 ThinkPad T410 with ThinkpadToday,it’s amazing for me.HaHa…

  195. Phillip Blum on February 16th, 2011 9:10 pm

    Well, I’ve shopped around a lot for a laptop. I tried Lenovo’s pretty good Ideapad Y560, configured out to the max, which I picked up for about $1200, a great machine, but too big and heavy, and not enough battery power. So, I’ve bought a Thinkpad X200s, and it is such a great computer! I love it, and I will keep it even if I win the T410.

    So why do I lust after the free T410??? Thinkpads are the best laptops I’ve found anywhere. The quality, features, ruggedness, and battery life are the best of any laptops I am aware of, and I think they look cool!!!! Very hip in an understated, Matrix like kind of way. Would not want to be caught in public without my X200s!!!

  196. James Leighton on February 19th, 2011 2:18 am

    I have always admired the design of the Thinkpad laptops, but I’ve never been able to afford one. I’ve been working the daylights out of my Lenovo S10 laptop for my development work for almost three years now. It has gone everywhere with me and still works every time I open it up. I’m now on my third keyboard and second battery pack – at least the SSD has lasted and its now completely silent since the fan stopped working a long time ago. I’ve taken a look at all sorts of laptops that are available locally, and every one of them falls short of the durability, quality and price that I see in the Thinkpad line.

    I would love to win the T410 that is in the contest so that I can finally let my S10 retire before the screen falls off :-)

  197. raviteja on February 19th, 2011 6:46 am

    I would like win Think pad 410 because it is the best laptop I ever used in my life in terms of performance. There are many rocking features in THINK PAD like internet, the keypad is wonderful to use and type and more over the cost is also reasonable when you take the performance into the account. Why would anybody wants to use the other laptops while you have choice or option for the best. I am using the THINK PAD T410 now and I would like to win other THINKPAD and gift that to my girl friend :) :)

  198. raviteja on February 19th, 2011 2:36 pm

    I would like THINKPAD laptop because the performance of the THINKPAD is unbelievable and the touch pad is too good when compared to any other laptop. Why would anybody want to go for other laptop while you have option for the best. I loved the performance. I have the THINKPAD edge and eager to useTHINKPAD T410…….

  199. Abdullah on February 20th, 2011 1:16 pm

    I nick name ThinkPad as ThinkTank. I have used R51 for almost five years now and still now no other comes close to meet my requirements in terms of reliability, durability and intelligent design. Its quite and cool running with unbelievable battery life and all that just perfect keyboard to lay my fingers on : ), and yeah who can forget that track point.. Its more like a pal to me than a machine.
    Now i need a more powerful machine to work on and have been thinking for T410 .What could be better if i win what i want : )

  200. HUNG PHAM on February 20th, 2011 9:16 pm

    Design: The design still ThinkPad T410 black crust with ThinkPad logo outside and hinges are made of stainless steel provides certainty for this laptop line.

    Configuration: equipped with the latest Intel Core i3, i5, i7 DDR3 RAM along with maximum support for the user.

    Monitor: The biggest difference is the default ThinkPad T410 LED screen using screen 14.1 “up to 1440×900 resolution. LED display is very bright with the best resolution for the 14.1″, T410 is ability to display sharp and wide, is suitable if working outdoors or to work requires more data display.

    Camera: ThinkPad T410 camera to choose is up to 2.0mpx integration, maximum support for the seminar online.

    Keyboard and Touchpad: Still the design of the T400, but with one difference and it is ESC is designed to better DELETE. Additional function keys turn off Microphone. The gap is narrowing of the keyboard than the previous line, tapping the keys. The touchpad is designed extensively for user convenience. If you look carefully you will notice there is a curve running through the TouchPad. TouchPad buttons is comfortable to use when pressed. This is the keyboard and touchpad are the best assessment of the line laptop.

    Communication ports: ThinkPad T410 with full interface for the best connection you maximum support their work.

    Battery: ThinkPad T410 Series 4 cell battery, 6 cells and 9 cells for use in turn time is 3 hours, 5 hours and 7 hours. If equipped with backup battery will last significantly longer than the time.

    Overview of the Lenovo ThinkPad T410: T410 had less improvement compared to previous ThinkPad T400. From the keyboard until the interface was much more convenient.

    Market positioning of the T410

    Certainly will not object when people say that T410 is a product produced for people who buy computers to work on, not to play games or watching video is essential. This is a business laptop line. Those who do work related to image processing or video is probably not very popular ThinkPad T410.

  201. Nikolay on February 21st, 2011 9:58 am

    I have a really old thinkpad. Its Actually an IBM R51. Great machine, durable and simple to use and maintain. Its HDD is too small, but after 5 years of cruel exploitation it has not a single bad sector. Battery still works fine – approximately one hour which i think its great for a such an old machine. Soon or late I have to change it for something more powerful. Actually the work requires it. I think T410 will be extremely suitable.

  202. lobenton on February 21st, 2011 1:57 pm

    I’ve used so many laptops made by different companies. Thinkpad is the one of the the best-performing laptops I’ve ever owned and compared. I’ve used my X60 for over 4 years! It is light, very stable and trustworthy. It came with international warranty which is another reason I chose ThinkPad. The customer service of ThinkPad is very good. I’m still a thinkpad user. The overall experience with ThinkPad is very good. The only drawback is the short battery life. As you know, my ThinkPad already been working for me for over 4 years. It’s time to get a new ThinkPad. If I win the T410, it will make my ThinkPad experience even better!

  203. David Crook on February 21st, 2011 11:31 pm

    I’ve used Thinkpads since they were first introduced, and they are the ONLY brand of laptop I will buy. Currently I have a X301 and love it, but could really use a faster laptop for the programming and DBA work that I do.

  204. FUN on February 22nd, 2011 12:36 am

    I don’t know if this is a good reason why I should get a free Thinkpad, but I want one. I don’t own a laptop, I never have, and it would be nice if this were my first. I am not greedy, but I am hopeful, and your offer seems fair enough. I don’t mind being offered goods and services if there is a payoff in the end. It really doesn’t matter though, I am very poor. This is another reason I have entered into this offer. I haven’t owned a laptop before because I haven’t been able to afford one. As silly as it may be, my birthday also falls on March 31st, and this would be a great present. I have always believed that the best gifts are the ones given by strangers. They may not have the best match with what you want, but there is something special that happens when a total stranger gives you a gift. That is one of the best ways that people show compassion for their fellow man/woman. I can’t say that I am the most deserving of entrants, and I may not be the most gracious either, but I sincerely would appreciate being given the chance to win. On a strange note, I am an identical twin. People always ask if I am the good twin or the evil one. I tell them I am the unlucky one. Neither my brother or I are evil, but I assure you that he has always had great luck where I have had rotten luck. Maybe you can defy the odds and break tradition by sending me some good fortune. Thank you very much for reading this, and I assure you my full legal name is FUN. Have a beautiful day.

  205. FUN on February 22nd, 2011 12:52 am

    Did I forget to say why I love Thinkpads? I haven’t used one or seen one in person. I don’t know. They have great specs. They sound great in all the reviews. For the purposes of this contest, they are very affordable, free for somebody. I really can’t say with any authority about any laptop or netbook or any of these things. I know what I want and I have done plenty of research. These look like the best there is. If I am mistaken, that wouldn’t stop me from wanting one. I still can’t afford one if I wanted it. I’d use it everyday that’s for sure. I love Thinkpads just because. That’s what my parents always used to say to me. Just because. It worked for me. I hope it works for you.

  206. Yerbol on February 22nd, 2011 5:56 am

    Legendary and reliable machines. I owned several thinkpads. The latest one is X200. Very good performance and portability.

  207. Ian Orford on February 22nd, 2011 11:53 am

    You will love the new 2011 ThinkPads David, and whilst it is not as thin and light as the X300 Series the new ThinkPad T420s is a stunner!

  208. Kurtis on February 22nd, 2011 1:26 pm

    Like Ian above, I am looking forward to the new T420S coming out! Besides all the newest features (Dolby sound, microphone options, 30 HOUR battery life!!!, faster boot, etc) it’s also the greenest (environmentally friendly) laptop around which really sells for me! I used an R61i for 3 years doing development work in Tanzania and that Thinkpad never let me down. Dust, vibration, heat, bugs (both the 6 legged and the software virus kind) didn’t phase it a bit. Great line of computers and I’m looking forward to a T420 (unless of course I win this one!)

  209. M.Lemiski on February 22nd, 2011 3:13 pm

    I have had a T21, and an x61T. they have been reliable and compact for their power.

  210. Strashimir Popvassilev on February 22nd, 2011 11:31 pm

    I have been looking for a computer for my girlfriend, and I can’t make my mind what I want to buy. Netbooks are too small, larger laptops are too heavy (and too expensive) and I don’t seem to find a reason to buy a new laptop. My girlfriend uses an old ThinkPad T23 (with 512 Mb RAM) and I use an old ThinkPad (bought it old, and its case was damaged, as I later realized, but it works, except for the network connection, so I have to use one of the USB ports instead, to connect to internet). The one I use is ThinkPad R40, and I couple of days ago I realized I could fit the memory from my HP dv5030, so I upgraded my R40 ThinkPad to 1Gb RAM. The reason I don’t use my HP is since it got viruses, and I have not found the time to clean it (and to figure out what I need to do), so after a few months of not using any computer at home, I bought an old one, to at least be able to chat with my parents (who live in Bulgaria) on skype. Once I started using the R40 though, I decided I like the old type of screen (4:3) better, than the current (16:9), and I also installed other programs I use, so I don’t seem to miss my HP. It works pretty well, in particular after I put more memory: I use it for internet, and for text editing (using Tex, MikTex, TeXnicCenter). I also installed GIMP, Graph (a small graphing program to graph math equations), and Python, to do some programming, including graphing some curves in the plane and some related squares, some geometry problems related to my work, I am a mathematician. I have used the R40 since around September, and I am happy with its performance. I recently spend quite some time educating myself about new laptops, looking for something that is not heavy, yet that has good computing capabilities, and I spent some time on the Lenovo web site reading about ThinkPad x120e (I think I first read a review about it on a different cite), and then I saw I can win a ThinkPad T420, I am sure it would be just as reliable as the old ones that my girlfriend and I use, except packed with many more features and much better and faster. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to participate and to share my thought, good luck to everybody!

  211. xiaoqing xie on February 23rd, 2011 12:43 pm

    Thinkpad R50 is the one I have been using for the past 7 years, unbelievable, right? Yes, that is why I like Thinkpad so much. It is very durable!! Another best thing about Thinkpad is their keyboard, better than any laptops outthere!!! Although my old R50 still works fine, I would love to upgrade it to T410!!! Hope that I can get this dream machine :)

  212. Joy on February 25th, 2011 1:54 am

    I love ThinkPad. I have brought them through harsh desert environments, not babying them by any means, and they’ve all come back still purring where others fell apart. Started with an X40, then T60p, X41 Tablet, SL500. I haven’t, and won’t buy any other brand.

  213. ME on February 26th, 2011 6:48 pm

    I would love to win the T410 that is in the contest so that I can finally let my S10 retire before the screen falls off :-)

  214. Eddie on February 27th, 2011 8:14 pm

    Thinkpad laptops are so great because of their unrivaled durability. You can take them anywhere and give them a beating with no worrys! The thinkpad series are the most reliable laptops on the market! I have used the thinkpad.

  215. Randy on February 28th, 2011 3:21 pm

    As a Mac guy, I really enjoy using ThinkPads for work. These machines are built with outstanding quality; unlike most laptops from big box stores. I recommend them to everyone I know, and I have owned a T42, aT60, and an R61 (current). The T410 would be a worthy upgrade so I could pass the R61 to a younger generation (my kids).

  216. Matt Jackson on March 2nd, 2011 4:25 pm

    I previously used a T400 at my last job. Unfortunately I had to leave that position and return my laptop. Thinkpad totally won me over Dell and others, it is just plain and simple a workhorse! Since I am in the process of opening my own company, kicking it off with a new T410 would be extremely benefical to my efforts.

  217. Sameer Majtihia on March 3rd, 2011 1:42 am

    Well ThinkPads are great machines no words for it. currently im using one since sometime absolute no worry machine robust, tough, rugged and no problem machine. would love to add one more.

  218. Uyseah on March 3rd, 2011 1:47 am

    I really like Thinkpads because they are practical. They aren’t super flashy but they look good. I love the trackpoint because I don’t have to move my hand all over a trackpad to navigate my computer. The Thinkpad keyboards are great. I never have had a problem with my keyboard even though I have a small Thinkpad. These things last forever. I have been using my Thinkpad laptop for over 5 years and the only thing I don’t like is the battery life. That’s because I have the same battery from 5 years ago so I’m surprised it still even works. I really want to get a new Thinkpad.

  219. Philip on March 3rd, 2011 2:35 am

    I’ve never had a Thinkpad but I’ve heard lots of good things about it. The keyboard and the size is what attracts me to it.. perfect for traveling and programming! Oh and I’m desperate for a new work laptop!

  220. Dayle on March 3rd, 2011 12:17 pm

    I use a T400 for work and love it. I would love to have a T410 to use at home and share with the family.

  221. Brian on March 3rd, 2011 7:46 pm

    Let’s see: Keyboard – trackpoint – utilities – firmware and software updates (even for 5 year old laptops) – solid fame (my T60 has been dropped many times and also survived a car accident) – better the average performance – easy to source and replace parts – professional look features and tools.

  222. Jin on March 3rd, 2011 9:51 pm

    I have x61. It works perfectly. However, as we know, this model is out-dated now. I want to try something new.

  223. Brian on March 4th, 2011 1:34 am

    I did this already…just give me the dang thinkpad! :D please?

  224. sumegh on March 4th, 2011 11:49 am

    i saw many think pad laptops till date
    but i like it because it gives a smart impression
    the button n hardware is very impressive n gives a classy n stylish look
    its suits everyone n is the best laptop i wish to have

  225. anggie aprianto on March 4th, 2011 5:53 pm

    I always want to have a thinkpad, but for me just knowing the price makes it only dram. Thinkpad from long time already known as a high performance laptop for every engineer. His stability and durability become number one in the class. Maintaining his form from the old days were a good choice, cause by that we always know “this is thinkpad”.
    wish me luck…
    and keep one being number one “thinkpad”

  226. HU on March 4th, 2011 10:41 pm

    I used many Thinkpad types such as R52, T40, X200 , and I love the design style and reliable quality. It looks really good and comfortable, especially the T410.

  227. Vladimir Kosmonavtovich on March 5th, 2011 10:42 am

    I love ThinkPad because none of the five I have owned has ever broken down or malfunctioned. Also the design is so simple but sexy and powerful. I would get a new one if I had enough money (now a poor graduate school student).

  228. GEORGE VACHKOV on March 5th, 2011 3:37 pm

    I’m fond of ThinkPads of all ages and sizes. I might say it’s the perfect business machine. Solid rock, stunning and impressively fast. Mine is x201, an ultraportable monster, fast and reliable.
    ThinkPad is a worldwide milestone in the PC manufacturing, having no compromises in quality. I would not change it for some other brand.

  229. Richard on March 5th, 2011 7:44 pm

    I love ThinkPads because they are designed with durability and usability in mind. what other laptops can you pour water on the keypad and still work? Lenovo has been on the forefront of innovation and speed. I have used my friends T410s and I will tell you, this machine is blazing fast! its absolutely ridiculous. Right now I am using a dell, and I’ll be honest, at first I really loved it. But now, it is very slow and the build quality is sub par. In my honest opinion, the ThinkPad line is the greatest line of business notebooks on the market today. I want to win a ThinkPad so that I can retire my dreadfully slow dell and trade up to the amazing ThinkPad T410.

  230. Julien on March 6th, 2011 11:54 am

    I have always heard good comments about Thinkpads since I was very young. A couple of years ago, my uncle gave me his old Thinkpad R-40, which he had used for about 4 years. What impresses me the most is that this 6 year-old PC still works very well and fast! But, next year, I will go to university (Bachelor Degree of Administration) and I will have to travel for 1h30 a day, so I think that the Thinkpad T410 would be the perfect combination of portability and power for me. I also think that the X201 model is a very good laptop, because it very rare to see a 12-inch computer with an Intel core i7 processor in it! Since I have used my old R-40 Thinkpad, I will never be able to buy another computer brand than Lenovo, because they make the most sturdy, fast and reliable computers on the market and have a very good technical support.

  231. Sath on March 7th, 2011 1:35 am

    I already own a Thinkpad x100e, it’s a great laptop and a great companion when you travel a lot like I do, the keyboard, trackpad and mate screen are great,
    now I need one that still offer those features but with more power and also a bigger screen, the Thinkpad T410 is that one.

  232. Jeffrey on March 9th, 2011 5:21 am

    I actually never owned a thinkpad, but have used it since my dad used it for his job as a computer engineer. At first I thought it was ugly, but you can’t blame me, I was around 6 years old when I used it. However, now as a college student who owns a lenovo g560, I want something that will be durable, professional, fast, and powerful. I noticed one of my friends owns a thinkpad and tried it out. The trackpoint and research done into the thinkpad amazed me. The rubber feet were designed after cat’s feet to help absorb shock! I then did some more reading and read of the amazing durability and build quality the thinkpad provides such as the rollcage. Love the work that went into the thinkpad xD

  233. Peter Barker on March 9th, 2011 10:30 am

    Rugged and built to last. Great keyboard for typing!

  234. Faisal on March 9th, 2011 6:21 pm

    I have a thinkpad R61 for several years now, and it’s still working like a new laptop. I have not taken care of it hoping for it to break so I have a reason to buy a replacement. I have been window shopping for a new thinkpad and looking into the W520 line. Thinkpad has been the most durable laptop that I have used and will be recommending it to everyone who asks me.

  235. Gee Gee Mainini on March 9th, 2011 7:52 pm

    My son had a Thinkpad and totally love it. Someone else did too, and stole it. He has been telling me know much it would do for me with my wine touring business and why I need it. He says it is the “work horse” of computers, has a great keyboard, which is so smooth and effortless, that the hours I spend promoting my business would just fly by.

    I don’t care about beauty. I want a machine with a great screen, a smooth and comfortable keyboard, seamless ability to move from program to program, and make my hours of business a pleasure. I have looked at your “T” series, as this is what my son recommended for me. I love IBM, as they have been in this business for the long-haul, making a product which all reviews confirm, will not be a problem for me, just when I need my Internet use and web browsing.

  236. justin smith on March 9th, 2011 8:43 pm

    Just orderd a 120e laptop-would love to have a higher line model! Thinkpads are great for professional busitness

  237. Bogdan on March 9th, 2011 10:24 pm

    I’ve been using a T61 for work for almost 4 years and it’s a pleasure to do everything with it, from large dataset processing to GIS and scientific modeling. Very impressed with customer service and quick turnaround for a recent repair. I’d love to have T410 as my personal laptop.

  238. Shane on March 10th, 2011 8:17 pm

    My friend from Taiwan first initiated me to the ThinkPad series of Notebooks. I love the simple, sleek and classy design. More importantly, I love the powerhouse that lies beneath the lid.I’ll forever be a ThinkPad guy! I would LOVE to own the T410 notebook. I’ve always been environmentally conscious and have been using the L14 notebook to reduce my carbon footprint. :)

    I’ve owned 3 Thinkpads now, a T60, T400, and T510. I’m a college student who’s majoring in CS, and Thinkpads have every feature I want. I absolutely love the trackpoint and cannot go back to using a touchpad. I’m also in love with the modular drive bay since it allows me to have a SSD in the system for the OS, and a HDD in the optical bay for storage.
    I’m planning on buying Thinkpad #4 when it’s released–the W520.
    I’ve never had a need for gaming graphics, so the workstation-class graphics available in Thinkpads have always suited me. But, I do love the amazing battery life on the newer Thinkpads thanks to Nvidia Optimus and other Thinkpad-specific battery-saving measures.

    Patti, you are absolutely correct, all the info we had from Lenovo on Thursday was that this was an Edge 14, but you go through to the offer link that they sent us and it is an Edge 15″. Apologies! Egg on our face!

  242. Ana Yong on March 14th, 2011 1:53 pm

    Levono’s products are the best!!

  243. Ian Orford on March 14th, 2011 2:36 pm

    Patti, confusion reigns! This IS an Edge 14 offer, the landing page showed an Edge 15, but when you clicked through it actually went to the correct Edge 14, and the coupon nows does work for the 14″! Sorry for the confusion Patti!

    At a former employer, I had a T series, then an X series – which I just loved.
    In my current role, I have had HP (okay) and Mac (good for Facebook in coffee houses – not a serious business machine).
    I miss the reliability and simplicity I get with a Thinkpad!

  245. Matt on March 14th, 2011 11:11 pm

    If you are serious about performance and corporate dominance like me, stick with Thinkpad. Takes everyday hits like a champ and brings the deals home like a pro.

  246. Ian Orford on March 15th, 2011 9:31 am

    “good for Facebook in coffee houses – not a serious business machine” Oh Pete, we have been saying that for years! But not as openly as this! :) Love it, your gonna take a lot of flack for that!

  247. SR45 on March 15th, 2011 1:55 pm

    Lenovo thinkpad will be my first notebook computer whether I win or not. Many a research over the past months, and thus far no one can match the sturdiness and many security features that the ThinkPad has to offer.

    Careless about pretty colored notebooks on the market. I like the business looks of lenovo’s line of systems.

  248. youyi zheng on March 15th, 2011 3:44 pm

    I like quality thinkpad laptops. I have been using t61p for more than 3 years and it was perfect, like an excellent accompany but never complained anything, silent efficient and elegant. It was gorgeous. The 410 shall stand on the same team tough I have not used it before.

  249. Mazen Elfakhani on March 15th, 2011 11:32 pm

    I owned a T60, and i loved it. Thinkpads are the absolute best! I’ve owned almost ten laptops and only one of them was a thinkpad and i fell in love. They’re so durable and i love the business look, it’s so motivating and gets me enthusiastic about work, which is hard. it’s more than a laptop, it’s my best friend and i love it and i just purchased another thinkpad and winning this owuld gimme even more joy as i’d create a little home thinkpad network!

  250. codi on March 16th, 2011 4:08 am

    About a month ago I was sitting at my friends desk coding with him and all of a sudden the shelf fell out and my laptop crashed to the floor breaking the charger and scratching the disk. I’ve been checking daily for new laptops and I think I’m going to go with a T420 at the end of this month when it is released. The T410 is a phenomenal laptop and if the new one wasn’t coming out so soon I would have had a T410 a month ago :) I love ThinkPads!

  251. Joseph Chew on March 16th, 2011 4:47 am

    Lenovo ThinkPad T61 is my first notebook computer when I successful enrolled into local instititue. I did not appreaciate it only until i realized how comfortable the keyboard is. Until now, I am addicted typing on the keyboard and never ever look at other brands again.

    The little TrackPoint trills me so much. It is my primary mousing device. Had tried other similar trackpoint device on other brands but none can be compared to this little red dot!

  252. Anshuman Shoo on March 16th, 2011 2:08 pm

    Thinkpad laptops are very robust and compact. Love to have one.

  253. David W A on March 16th, 2011 8:01 pm

    I really like the thinkpad, and it will definitely be the next machine I own. My bother-in-law used a T42, and it performed really well, I always loved playing on it and liked the business feel to it. I work in computer repair, and the only Thinkpads that ever get brought in are ANCIENT as opposed to newer Dells and HPs that people bring in all the time. In researching what my next computer would be, i couldn’t find anything that really compared to the Thinkpad line by lenovo, and I know it’s gonna be a good laptop that will get me through college and beyond

  254. Archie Lee on March 17th, 2011 12:24 am

    I have a Thinkpad T400s. I’ve had various laptops from various manufacturers and have help my friends and family troubleshoot their desktop and laptop computers. My previous laptop had a hard drive failure just short of two years from purchase and then a month and a half later the video died. I was determined to buy a replacement laptop that ran cool… as cool as possible to avoid problems again. After going thru numerous reviews and examining reviews that actually measured the surface temperatures top and bottom sides, and looking at a balance between screen size and weight I decided to spend more and get the T400s. I needed something with a decent size screen (I’ve had a 12″ laptop just prior to the T400s .. and before that I had a 10.3″ laptop…. not a netbook but a full laptop with DVD drive. Laptops prior to that were 14/15 inch but heavy.) The T400s was lighter than the T400 and thinner and yet had a 14″ display which I needed as I was going to use the laptop alot as I would be using it in my voluntary work. I did have one problem occur, the video display itself went bad after about 7 months which was a surprise to me (but these things do happen on occasion). However, Lenovo support was EXCELLENT. Call them up, describe the problem and how I troubleshooted it (I connected an external monitor to the laptop and the external monitor worked fine). They agreed it was a bad display. They shipped me a box overnight so that I could send the laptop back to them, prepaid. They had my laptop back to me with a few days. I checked with them and they said yes remove your hard drive before shipping, no problem…. which is great since I didn’t want to ship it will all my data on it. This saved me the trouble of having to backup the data and ‘erase’ the data from the drive. Lenovo support was great. I’ve also recommended Lenovo to others. They have Thinkpads that are less expensive and more price competitive to other consumer laptops but are still well built (like the 14″ Edge) that compared to the other consumer laptops, I’d go with the Thinkpad Edge over other brands. If you’re buying a laptop for your small business you need something reliable, durable and good support. I’d say go with Lenovo Thinkpads.

  255. Yang on March 17th, 2011 12:50 am

    Thinkpads are exceptional engineers. They love sound engineering principles such as the adorable “robust”, hate poor engineering approaches such as the infamous “end of pipe”, and favour the notion of function over form with a burning passion; they are effective in practice and reliable in performance.

    Always have been a Thinkpad fan since I started using them 3 years back. Started with a T60, moved to a T61 and now on a W500. Eagerly looking forward to winning the T410 and continue my journey upwards :-) provides valuable reviews and deals for Thinkpad fans like me, keep up the good work!

  257. B.W. on March 17th, 2011 3:41 am

    My name is Bruce Willis, and I use a ThinkPad, because it is Die Hard, just like me. When I’m not busy kicking butt in real life, I’m busy kicking butt on Call Of Duty with the Trackpoint mouse. With the soft rim cap. My Buddha, that soft rim cap!

  258. Diederik on March 17th, 2011 7:32 am

    I use an X60 both for business and personal. I love Thinpads, because they are so simple and powerfull. No shiny covers, no glare screens, just a computer. Using thinpads makes you feel like a pro. Thinkpad computers are solid and stylish.

  259. Allen on March 17th, 2011 7:56 am

    Ready to replace my Sony Viao. There is just too much good press on the ThinkPad’s to ignore…

  260. Suzanne Gay on March 17th, 2011 12:32 pm

    At my place of employment, we order a lot of Lenovo Laptops because of the lack of problems we usually have with them. I don’t currently have a laptop but when I do purchase one, it will be a Lenovo. You can configure them up or down but when you configure them up, you have one screaming machine! The website is very helpful and the sales are great! Parts, if you need them are readily available and they are built tough. I’m SOLD on Lenovo for all of my needs!

  261. Suzanne Gay on March 17th, 2011 12:34 pm

    P.S. I would love to have a T510 but a T410 would more than fit my needs!

  262. John Hoy on March 17th, 2011 12:45 pm

    Lenovo Products in general are what I recommend to al my customers, and Thinkpads when it comes to notebook computers.

    I own a T-61 and a T-500 and my experience with these two units has shown me that dependability, quality are unequaled, and when there has been a service issue, the service has been exceptional. I have never spent hours on the phone trying to get an issue resolved and never paid a penney for service when it was required and turn around on repairs has been phenomenal

  263. Jon Steckelberg on March 17th, 2011 1:01 pm

    Thinkpads are the most reliable computers I have owned bar none.
    Every single one I have owned is still working.
    I have owned a 365ED, X24, X31, and X61.
    The only one not currently in use is the 365ED.
    I would love to have the T410.
    OOps not quite 50 words as the instructions said.
    I Love thinkpads yes I do, thinkpads I love you.
    Please gimme a free thinkpad.
    That must be at least 50 words now.

  264. Jim Chambers on March 17th, 2011 3:07 pm

    I order Lenovo ThinkPads for student lab equipment in the Biology Department at the University of Waterloo. I found that ThinkPads are well suited for this as they are sturdy, well made and responsive and are well priced. Once I tried another brand and after weeks of problems I replaced it with a Lenovo. I want a Lenovo ThinkPad T410 for my personal use. I’ve used an R61, T40 and T500.

  265. Ed on March 17th, 2011 9:07 pm

    When I need a laptop that ‘just works’, I reach for a ThinkPad. ThinkPads are the best-engineered mobile computers available today. Highly functional, with everything a mobile professional would need, and nothing that they don’t.
    I recently purchased a ThinkPad x120e, my very first ThinkPad, and have been absolutely thrilled with its build quality and functionality. Lenovo keyboards have always been regarded as the best in the industry, and the x120e continues that reputation.
    My wife has fallen in love with my Lenovo and as a result I don’t have as much ‘quality time’ with it as I would like. I would like to win a ThinkPad T410 so that my wife can have her own ThinkPad to enjoy.

  266. David W A on March 18th, 2011 2:06 am

    The first Thinkpad I ever used (I think it was the first laptop I ever used at that) was a really old one my Brother-in-law had maybe 13+ years ago. I loved the trackpoint and the good construction quality of the machine. I’ve since also used a T42 and loved the performance, battery life, and solid construction of the machine. I work as a computer technician, and I’ve got to say I see very few Thinkpads brought in with mechanical problems, unlike the Dells, HPs, and Toshibas I see on a nearly regular basis. Whether I win or not, my next notebook is definitely going to be a Thinkpad

  267. Nick B. on March 18th, 2011 7:35 am

    Best laptop ever! Well built, last forever, professional…Overall a quality machine! My first Laptop was a A31 followed by R61i and a T61…Thinkpads are the best period. I would love to own a new T series for home/work and an X series for travel. I bought an ASUS not long ago, and found the quality was sub-par at best. After owning various Thinkpads I will return the ASUS and invest in a quality computer that runs, feels, looks great.

  268. Glenn on March 18th, 2011 1:19 pm

    I may be the odd duck here, but I don’t have a thinkpad yet. However, many of my associates have over the years and I have always wanted one but didn’t feel I could afford it; I even tried to buy one of my friend’s used ones but still couldn’t afford it because resale was so good. Well, I’m in a little better financial position now and I have finally ordered my first, a T510, and can’t wait for it to arrive! I am one of those people that research things to death before I buy them, and I really should wait till next week for the T520, but what I’m getting in this T510 for the price is amazing. Some people say that ThinkPads are just boring black boxes, but I find the look appealing to me; its serious and understated yet powerful and reliable. It reminds me of the expensive SLR cameras like Nikon or Canon, they’re just black and bulkier than a modern day point-and-shoot, but if you want a serious camera that is solid and does the job there is nothing more beautiful. Also being a former mechanical engineer I find some cool about the red trackpoint and the “red-winged” mouse buttons that go with them. So why am I entering this if I already have a new one coming? well . . . c’mon, wouldn’t you take two ThinkPads for the price of one if you could :-) ! Can’t wait . . . specs, looks, performance, price, what’s not to like!

  270. Dawei Zhang on March 18th, 2011 2:03 pm

    I don’t know why I can’t find my comments submitted on Mar.8.

    In the former comments I mentioned that I’ve ever had 3 ThinkPad, that’s 1 X31 and 2 X32. All these laptop are high quality and I like them very much. Even for my carelessness spill the water to the keyboard for 3 times(once on the X31, and twice on one X32), they still can work well. But now, they seems a little out-of-date for their speed and capicity. I really want have a new one.

  271. Ian Orford on March 18th, 2011 2:05 pm

    We apologize Dawei if you post went missing! Many thanks for posting again.

  272. Ian Orford on March 18th, 2011 2:24 pm

    Allen, so good to see you coming over to the ‘ThinkPad’ side!

  273. Aswini Moharana on March 19th, 2011 1:49 am

    Earlier I was using IBM Thinkpad T40 for around 4 years. Then I am intrested for HP and purchased HP NC6400. Due to the bad experience I again purchased T410 and I really got my confidence back by using my Thinkpad. I was doing a mistake thinking about nc6400 that time and now I realize that the Thinkpad is the best…………………….. I love it

  274. David on March 19th, 2011 7:45 am

    I love ThinkPad because of its solid and user experience design. They are reflected every where. Keyboard night light, finger slim below the arrow buttons, two sets of mouses, solid display framework, etc. I have used laptops from almost all venders, but ThinkPad is the one I love best. I enjoy being a ThinkPad user. I use it everyday in my study and work. It has already became part of my life.

    I had used ThinkPad T41 before, and I am enjoying a Thinkpad X200 now. I heard that Lenovo is about to release the new model X220, T420, T420s and T520 soon. I am planning to have a T420s or T520 in the near future.

  275. canchen on March 19th, 2011 8:16 am

    I like quality thinkpad laptops.I don’t care about beauty. I want a machine with a great screen, a smooth and comfortable keyboard, seamless ability to move from program to program, and make my hours of business a pleasure. I have looked at your “T” series.I have always heard good comments about Thinkpads since I was very young.Well ThinkPads are great machines no words for it. currently im using one since sometime absolute no worry machine robust, tough, rugged and no problem machine. would love to add one more.

    Thanks, Ian.

    Maybe I’m a thinkpad’s fans. All my friends whom having the thinkpad called the thinkpad as “Little Black” or “Lovely Black”.

    Last week, again, I’d ordered two new thinkpad laptops for my wife and my father-in-law. They are both X201, one had arrived and one is still on the shipping road(the order status can be checked on your website).

    All my used thinkpad laptops are X-Series. So this time I really want to own a T410 to replace my X32 which is still being used.

  278. Patrick Vaudo on March 19th, 2011 6:20 pm

    As a tech I’ve had a variety of laptops since 1990.. they served me well but none were Thinkpads.

    In 2009 I was able to buy a W700 for personal use. I can only say it’s the nicest machine.. the hi-gamut screen is beautiful and it runs like a fast desktop. The following year it was time for the company to replace an older tablet, so I ordered an X200T which has also been a great machine.

    With both I really like the rugged minimalist design and that they are fully capable machines.

  279. Feodor on March 19th, 2011 6:26 pm

    I like ThinkPad because it has the best quality on the market. It have very good components and top quality textolite. I really like the commitment to the traditions of IBM – quality, reliability, usability. These laptops are made by professionals for professionals, therefore they are very durable.

    P.S. Sorry for my bad English)

  280. Feodor on March 19th, 2011 6:40 pm

    I’m using Lenovo EDGE 15 (i3 UM370, 2Gb DDR3,250Gb) for my work (Web designer freelancer). I like it but it has slow CPU and Graphics, low battery. Therefore I want new ThinkPad for my work. I like ThinkPad as I said in my above comment (March 19th, 2011 6:26 pm ).

    P.S. Sorry for my bad English again)

  281. Kamalakar on March 19th, 2011 9:54 pm

    Lenovo Thinkpad is the best laptop for business purpose.It is my favourite laptop and I recomend this.

  282. zhixin zheng on March 19th, 2011 10:20 pm

    In my memory, thinkpad was the best laptop brand. I have used it for a long time. I believe it.

  283. Benoit on March 20th, 2011 8:12 am

    have use a old PC and would love a T410. It is light and small enough for me to put in my purse. I am not very careful and a T410 would endure all the abuse I subject my laptop to. I am an attorney and I always need to have access to my laptop so a T410 would be perfect

  284. SunnyGo on March 20th, 2011 8:24 am

    Thinkpad is like Marathon runners. It just keeps going without tiring. Thinkpad stands for is reliability, ruggedness and an excellent keyboard.

    I have a R60e, since June2007, it still going strong, the only complaint i have with this piece is that is takes a long time to boot and guess the culprit is Windows Vista!. The only area in which i think my Tthinkpad-R60e is lacking is Audio and the DVD drive (very noisy)

    I think if Thinkpad’s make these features as standard there would be no competition left. These feature will make it a Business come Consumer laptop rolled in one!
    1. Webcam – By default
    2. HDD – 500 GB 5400 rpm default or 500 7200 rpm as default
    3. Ram – 4GB default

    The Thinkpad that i would like to own would be either T420 or T420S (which is expected to be rolled out in April11)

  285. Vincent Yao on March 20th, 2011 11:36 am

    I’m a full time engineering student and my thinkpad is my most used tool. I own a t42 which I use regularly and I had owned a t21, as well as a t61p.

    I love how each and every single one of my Thinkpads are well built, lightweight, portable, and most importantly, reliable. Things such as the Trackpoint nav, rock solid keyboard, and Thinklight are reasons why I just can’t use any other laptop. Smartly designed, easily upgraded, and robust looking black boxy aesthetics are all why I come back for more.

    I have abused it more than I should, but it’s still holding up wonderfully!

  286. Ahmed on March 20th, 2011 3:38 pm

    I love thinkpads because of their reliability and durability. I have used a few thinkpads in the past such as the t400 and the r500 both have superb build quality. I would love to have the thinkpad t410 because I need a computer for my home and business use. However, these consumer laptops found in retail stores are not the same as a distinguished thinkpad.

  287. Andrew on March 20th, 2011 4:22 pm

    Why do I like ThinkPad? They’re fast, durable, light, and last long on a charge. I couldn’t ask for more, but Lenovo gives us more. Props to Lenovo, and thanks to ThinkpadToday for doing this contest!

  288. Andrew on March 20th, 2011 4:25 pm

    Oh yeah, I’m using an X301. Just because it was a “halo” product doesn’t mean it’s not great. “Kodachi” will probably last just as long as its namesake.

  289. Charles Law on March 20th, 2011 7:38 pm

    I would love to have a Thinkpad T410. My current Thinkpad — a T61p — is a veritable workhorse, but it’s getting to be a bit heavy for me to haul around. I’d like to use it as a desktop replacement and have a nifty T410 to take around with me. Thinkpads are wonderful machines — sort of the Volvo of the laptop world. My first was a T21 — and it still works fine. I think what really sets Lenovo (and, formerly, IBM) machines apart is the warranty service. Once the screen on my T21 went out while I was traveling in North Africa. I was on year three of a three-year international warranty. The local IBM repair shop ordered a part from Paris, it arrived 24 hours later, and by the next afternoon I was up and running.

  290. Grazor on March 20th, 2011 8:15 pm

    I currently use a T61. Its very durable and responsive. I am looking forward to the E420 ThinkPad when its eventually released.

  291. Haik Gazarian on March 20th, 2011 10:23 pm

    I have been using a T400s every day for the past two years, for both work and leisure, which replaced the T60 I used for the two years prior to that. Overall, both have handled everything I have thrown at them, from high definition multimedia streaming for presentations to stellar battery life which has been necessary on the road. Because of this consistently positive personal experience, I am now searching for my next replacement, and am looking into the T410 as it is the upgrade to my current model.

  292. MCR on March 20th, 2011 10:35 pm

    I’m on my ninth Thinkpad and most of my older ones are now hand-me-downs to my five kids, which they used to get through school/college. I have one defector who sold his soul to Apple, but he’s still part of the family. Thinkpads are absolute workhorses. I’ve never had one break down on me, and they have been to Barrow, Nome, Kodiak and other places in the Bush and never let me down. They have been banged around, dropped, spilled on, tripped over — you name it, and they just keep churning data. If my Thinkpad was a woman, I’d marry it.

  293. Shannon Shupe on March 21st, 2011 7:04 am

    We are lookign at purchasing the ThinkPad 120e because of cost and reliability. It has gotten some awesome reviews and I think bringing in a laptop lab to our school would be a GREAT addition. We are looking to add 24 laptops and a mobile cart to our science classroom in order to give students access to computer technology. This is an addition that we have been waiting for for years and I’m excited about the possibility of it actually happening. Thank you Lenovo for coming up with an affordable solution!

  294. laura wagner on March 21st, 2011 11:30 am

    I have been a die hard Thinkpad owner now for about 10 years or so… I think I started out with a 390X, which was such a workhorse back then, and I still have it today (becuase of a program I can’t afford to buy anymore and it cannot be transferred to any other computer!). then I had the T21, I think was next. Great machine. Now I have the T61 which I’ve had for almost three years. Love this computer! But after giving a suggestion to a friend on which laptop she should get, I now am wanting either the T410 or T510.
    The TP’s have the best audio in them for my line of work. Definitely a good investment! LOVE my Thinkpad!! :)

  295. Xiao Zhou on March 21st, 2011 3:47 pm

    When I first got the chance to choose my own laptop, I was told that Mac and ThinkPad had the greatest performance and stability. I chose a MacBook Pro. It did perform well. However I’m not a big fan of Mac OS as I’ve been using Windows since I touched a computer for the first time. I installed Windows on the MacBook Pro. It worked well however far less stable than I thought. So when it comes to my second chance to choose my own laptop, I’ll definitely choose ThinkPad, about which I heard a lot of praise and honor from my friends.

  296. Alexandr on March 22nd, 2011 2:41 am

    I think that Thinkpad series laptops are the best decisions in this area among all acquaintances to me brands. Their design, on my representations, surpasses such competitors as sony and apple severity of the forms, elegance and originality. Quality of assemblage also at the highest level. It is the mashine for which it would be desirable to work every day. I now use IBM t60p and, the word of honour, suppressing majority my colleagues to me envy.

  297. Hui Xu on March 22nd, 2011 9:09 am

    I have a Thinkpad X31 bought in 2005 and keep on using till now. It’s really high quality, though the capicity has only 40Gb and the memory has only 256Mb. But I lovin it for it’s easier to be carried. I want to buy a new one but less of finance. So, this really a good chance for me.

    The Thinkpad line is one of the few series left where quality product design still exists and pushes the envelope in a way where many other companies fall short. I have used a multitude of laptops from the Thinkpad line and have always been impressed with their function oriented design. The product is designed in a professional way and not loaded with near as much bloatware that many other companies pre-load their computers with. Additionally, Lenovo uses cutting edge hardware and known chipsets for many of their system which facilitates wider kernel based driver support when using Linux on their systems. Both the inside of the computer and how all the pieces fit together and the exterior are industrial and appropriate for a computing device, creating a user experience that many other companies slip-up on.

    My friend is using T61 for 02 years and it is still very good until now. Beside, it is quite easy to be carried.

  300. Allens Tremblay on March 23rd, 2011 7:07 am

    I like Thinkpads because they are very solid machines, have a business beautiful look. They run lighthing fast compare to others crappy laptops on the market, espacially Apple stuff !! They don’t have cheap plastic finish like cheap competition models.

    Some will say that the look always remain the same over the years, yes, but this is an advantage. You do not look bad when you compare your old thinkpad with new ones.

  301. RINSHAD K ASHARAF on March 23rd, 2011 10:04 am

    I want to win LENOVO THINKPAD because .. In all sense I am PROUD to own it .. !!

  302. Al on March 23rd, 2011 11:54 am

    I have used 3 ThinkPad notebooks since 1990s. I still think it is the best notebook in the world, especially for business use. No matther how many new styles emerged in the market, ThinkPad’sappearance, clean and simple style, reliability impress me very much. The keybord of ThinkPad is the most comfortable one I have used.

  303. mateusz on March 23rd, 2011 2:06 pm

    My first thinkpad was t61p 15″ – I think that it’s one of the best thinkpads – 1920×1200 screen, up to 8GB of ram (actually i have only 6), c2d 2.4Ghz and quadro gpu makes it very, very good workstation. After something like one year i’ve purchased lenovo x200 and now i just love it – it’s small, it has 8 hour battery and it perfectly works with linux what was important to me. I can take it and use it everywhere, and i know that thinkpad = no trubles ;]

  304. Al on March 23rd, 2011 2:25 pm

    I bougut ThinkPad 600 in 1998, and used until 2003 when I bought 2 ThinkPad T41, one for business, and the other for home use. ThinkPad is the best notebook I’ve used. But something I don’t understand is that after I came to Canada from China, I’ve never seen ThinkPad in the market. Maybe you could see that they are available online, but you know that not everyone likes to buy a stuff worth more than 1000 CAD on line. Forturnately, my two old T41 still works.

  305. Mahlon Wagner on March 23rd, 2011 4:01 pm

    Over the years I have used many Thinkpads (R32, T61, X40 and X200). These machines are outstanding in performance and reliability. The keyboards have been a delight to use as has the trackpoint. Thinkpads have given me great productivity from my annual trips to Germany to my vacations in Hawaii. I have compared the Thinkpad to other laptops and I have never found any one of them worthy of competing with the Thinkpad.

  306. Shudong on March 23rd, 2011 7:03 pm

    ThinkPad is the first Laptop brand I heard about. It is famous for the trackpoint and well design. I like the trackpoint and the keyboard so much. I do not want to type in other keyboard after I used ThinkPad. And I feel professional to be a ThinkPad user, especially when I do presentation. So neat and so beautiful. I love ThinkPad. I just checked out the X220. That is the most amazing machine I have ever seen.

  307. Steven on March 23rd, 2011 10:04 pm

    Thinkpads set a standard in my life. The simple, yet elegant design efficiently keeps the components protected and cool to the touch. The keyboard makes you hate every other laptop. The software they packed in makes your life so much easier. When I occasionally use another person’s laptop, I immediately find faults and recommend they get a thinkpad to replace their computer. I cannot stop using a thinkpad.

    My old thinkpad, the t61, died two months ago and I am hard pressed to find a laptop to replace it. I loved my old thinkpad, it lived a long life and provided all the power I needed.

    Good luck fellow thinkpad users!

  308. Luigi Bozianu on March 23rd, 2011 10:21 pm

    I love my machine. It’s a T60 (2007CV8), with ATI X1300 video chip. It has the max of memory 3GB. I have replaced the HDD with a bigger one, WD Scorpio Black 320GB, and the CPU: instead of Intel T2400 it has a newer generation T7200. The motherboard design and BIOS updates permitted me to do this. It is a real help for my computer science studies at Seneca, Toronto. It runs Fedora 14 64bit and Windows 7 32bit. All the needed software run like a charm: programming, web development, database. Plays music and DVDs. (I am not a gamer.) I am thinking of replacing the HDD (again!) with an Intel X-25M. I don’t want to imagine how it will work with an SSD, because it is perfect right now. Fn-F4, backpack, school. Fn-F4, backpack, home. Never let me down. Always up’n'running. This tool is amazing, and it’s not the last in its series.

  309. Kabby Dymmott on March 24th, 2011 6:06 am

    After a great deal of research on the Web I have decided to buy a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge. My home computer is very old and slow, so I thought it would be a lot easier and more functional for my home business if I were to set myself up with a ThinkPad rather than the traditional and more cumbersome desktop computer. I believe the ThinkPad will be the workhorse I’m looking for; reliable, fast & durable for all applications. Therefore to be in the running and to actually win a ThinkPad would be a dream come true. Thank you for the opportunity.

  310. Ian Orford on March 24th, 2011 11:27 am

    Great Post Luigi Thanks! Let us know if you upgrade to SSD goes well!

  311. Jason Prejean on March 24th, 2011 12:41 pm

    I currently have a ThinkPad T61 15.4? with 2.5GHz Mobile Core 2 Duo CPU, 4GB Ram and 320GB 7200rpm hard drive. This is the best laptop I have ever used. It’s a real workhorse and solid as a rock. I love the keyboard – very easy to type on . I recommend Lenovo laptops to everyone who asks for my opinion. My next laptop will definitely be a little smaller – I’ve been eyeing the T410. I’ve been finding the larger 15.4? size T61 a bit hard to handle now that I’ve been having some issues with my hands and have actually dropped my T61 a number of times. A lesser laptop would have been put out of commission but my solid T61 still works great

  312. Allens Tremblay on March 24th, 2011 7:45 pm

    Opps, forgot to mention my Thinkpad model, it`s a T60 !!

  313. Michael on March 24th, 2011 11:08 pm

    As a student going into university, I would like to own Lenovo’s ThenkPad T420 because I need the efficiency and long battery life during courses. I think that the ThinkPad T420 would be a great tool to have in Business school because it would help me get organized and increase my efficiency. Perhaps I will one day aspire to work with Lenovo to market these amazing laptops.

  314. Shailesh Doshi on March 25th, 2011 4:38 am

    solid, dependable and a real workhorse

  315. gofar on March 25th, 2011 8:03 am

    i never had any thinkpad or ibm notebook series before but then i look for what the best notebook suits me, after a hard searching and comparing with other brand i said this is the one, this is the one i have been searching for! thinkpad T410! networking, gaming, office even romance! you name it.

  316. matt on March 25th, 2011 12:48 pm

    my first thinkpad was a T-30 then i moved up to the T-41 and know i am using a T-61 which i love and use for everything i well never use anything but a thinkpad model. I would love to buy a new thinkpad and pass this one down to my best friend who is using a T-41 i think you just cant kill them so far the only thing i have had to replace is the power cord. keep up the good work lenovo.

  317. larry hoberg on March 25th, 2011 5:57 pm

    I currently own a Thinkpad x100e and a Thinkpad Edge 14. To me quality and feel are very important along with performance. I particulary like the keyboard and the general overall feel. The Trackpoint and touchpad provides excellent ponting options. I also have a Thinkpad keyboard that I can put on my lap and connect it to either laptop via USB which maybe located 2 or 3 feet away, thus I don’t have to reach for laptop keyboard in this configuration. I was worried that the quality would go down once IBM sold it to Lenovo. The quality ,however, seems to improve with each new model; with the UL approval, the extended battery life, spillproof keyboard to mention a few. I am hoping that they will also introduce models in the W series that are equivalent to the older W series – dual screen, wacom pad etc. The support software and support is excellent.

  318. Richard Hepworth on March 25th, 2011 6:18 pm

    My first laptop was a Sony Vaio, and very nice too, but when I got my ThinkPad T42 I was totally knocked out by the engineering beauty of the design and construction and the superb feel of the keyboard and joystick – a joy to use.
    The T42 has become my workhorse and it has taken over from my PC (a Dell) but alas it has become a little long in the tooth with limited memory that I have to keep managed to prevent it filling up.
    A ThinkPad T420 would solve my memory shortage problem and also allow me to work faster.
    To win a ThinkPad T420 would be a dream come true.

  319. Andrew Wedekind on March 25th, 2011 10:10 pm

    I currently use a Lenovo Thinkpad for school and I usually have a great distaste of laptops, but the Thinkpad that I have has performed quite reliably and I don’t think I could ask for a better Laptop. The Lenovo Thinkpad that I have hasn’t BSoD on me unlike some of my friends who have laptops outside of Lenovo. When I accidently damaged the screen of my laptop I was able to get it quickly fixed by the warranty. Overall my experience with Lenovo products has been nothing but pleasantness.

  320. pahruddin on March 26th, 2011 10:26 am

    I like lenovo, smart & faster, I have Notebook lenovo G460, and I have plan will buy one more Lenovo for my wife, I Think Thinkpad my plan next time… in my think is Thinkpad.

  321. luhaorui on March 26th, 2011 10:33 am

    My notebook (an lenovo, but not ThinkPad notebook) was broken, so I need a new notebook. In 4 years of using and observing computer, I am not satisfied of other kind of notebook’s quality. So I want to use ThinkPad rather than other notebook for my next computer. I hope the ThinkPad will be the best notebook which is reliable and fast i have ever seen. My old notebook has a 14′ screen and i think it’s the best size and T420 satisfied my requirement. It has all the newest features such as the 2nd intel cpu, usb3.0… which is not realized in T410. This features are attractive to me. the best computer I’m looking forward is a T420. I want to buy a new one but I’m a student and I’m not so rich. So I want to grasp the chance.

  323. rg on March 26th, 2011 12:05 pm

    these things are tanks both in their ability to perform well but are also highly durable. i still have a 2003 thinkpad r40 built by ibm that runs well after being dropped, kicked, spilled on multiple times, and generally abused. still runs perfectly after years of mishandling. incredibly easy to work on, have taken it apart numerous times to replace hard drives or rinse it out after a spill and with proper drying times has continued to push along. my new mac required a new keyboard after its first spill, something the thinkpad is apparently immune to. thinkpad.. keep on truckin.

  324. Yann Malato on March 26th, 2011 12:33 pm

    I own a T400 since December 2009 and what I love the most on my laptop is the awesome screen quality. I could configure the laptop to my needs and I could still upgrade it without any problem (SSD in place now).
    The robustness of the laptop is also quite reassuring. Overall, a very good ThinkPad!

  325. Zhengyi Liu on March 26th, 2011 5:43 pm

    I used X40 from my high school for about 8 years to my graduate, it was stable and comfortable. Now the only qualified competitor again apple is thinkpad. I need high speed, stable system, low noise and long life battery for my study of computer science. And I am a Chinese, I support lenovo even it needs to work harder to protect the thinkpad logo.

  326. adrian on March 26th, 2011 6:23 pm

    Well i got a thinkpad edge 13 its not perfect but its above most similar laptops in build quality, screen protection could be improved.I like the keyboard i think lenovo/ibm still make the best keyboards for laptops, i like my AMD configuration i got the machine at an amazing price! And i am hoping that new products will get even better in terms of build quality!

  327. Gunawan on March 27th, 2011 8:29 am

    Lenovo Thinkpad is the character laptop had i never met

  328. Sushant Mohan on March 27th, 2011 11:40 am

    Thinkpad laptops are simply the best in short to say. They are the most rugged laptops and best suited for people who expect the most ergonomic use of a laptop rather than eyeing at other aesthetics which don’t mean anything to a system’s perfomance. I always love the keyboard of a thinkpad it keeps on impressing you everytime you use it…. In short thinkpad is THE best for people who really expect the performance.

  329. Martin Spacek on March 27th, 2011 12:16 pm

    I’ve been a ThinkPad lover ever since I first switched from desktop to laptop. My main qualm with laptops was always the keyboard. They all have funky layouts, with shuffled Home/End and PageUp/PageDown keys, and non existent F-key spacing. I use these keys all the time while editing text, and I couldn’t bear the thought of having to reprogram myself when switching between my laptop and a normal desktop keyboard. Then, at a student workshop in Japan with a lot of comp sci/machine learning types, I noticed many people had Thinkpads. I admired their layout, as well as the the little trackpoint in the middle of the keyboard which allowed them to somehow scroll and move the mouse without moving their hands. Just a couple of months later, I bought my first machine, a T41. I still have it, and still use it occasionally. I found that having two sets of mouse buttons on the machine, another almost exclusive ThinkPad feature (and a polar opposite to the silly MacBook Pro), helps reduce hand strain. And of course, I’ve found the ThinkLight to be invaluable.

    My main machine now is a fully loaded W510, which I love, although it would be nice to have something a little more portable from time to time. Both of my machines exclusively run Ubuntu. Linux compatibility, solid build quality, and ease of disassembly are the other major reasons I swear by ThinkPads. A couple of years ago, I bought a used R51, cleaned and upgraded it a bit, and gave it to my Mom for her birthday. She loves it to this day!

  330. Tom McDaniel on March 27th, 2011 4:44 pm

    As a consultant I travel extensively – lots of time in airplane seats. ThinkPads work everywhere! The pointer stick in the keyboard is great for serious work on airplane tray tables and sitting in an easy chair in a hotel room. All this travel and extensive use is hard on computers. IBM/Lenovo service is great and universal. I have had units repaired in Kentucky, Nevada, Canada, and Washington. I am on my 8th Thinkpad (a T61) that is getting due for replacement., My older ThinkPads (IBM_1 through IBM_7 are all still working and serving useful functions in my family.

  331. Dan Gochi on March 27th, 2011 7:07 pm

    As a Java application developer by day and an amateur DJ by night, I have been counting on my Thinkpad as my all-in-one mobile computer solution. Thinkpads feature the security, power and reliability I need for developing my business web applications while having the portability and strength for the crazy night club scene. In both cases they have never failed me and I cannot wait for this newest line to arrive. The longer-lasting battery power will be great so I can develop on the go and continue to spin tracks through the wee hours of the morning.

  332. Ramu on March 28th, 2011 1:19 am

    Just i like its,

    more Quality.

  333. Donat Csikos on March 28th, 2011 4:38 am

    I have been using my T61 for more than 3 years, and i have to say, it is really good. Good machine, good support.

  334. Ken Molay on March 28th, 2011 9:49 am

    My T400 replaced my T41 and now it’s time to move up again to the Sandy Bridge chipset! I love the Thinkpad’s keyboard, trackpoint controller, and combination of speed, design, silence, and power. It’s the best business laptop series ever. I remain a loyal user.

  335. Peter Zhang on March 28th, 2011 11:45 am

    I have not owned a thinkpad yet, but is impressed by its design and all rave reviews about the machine. In this case, the word of mouth effect is so great that my next purchase is for sure a thinkpad.

  336. Grayson Bevil on March 28th, 2011 12:35 pm

    My dad got the T500 a few years and i have used it quite a few times. Ever since he got it i have always wanted a Think Pad. Being a college student, photographer, and Tech Geek i demand power and durability that only a Think Pad can deliver. I herd somewhere that the T410 is an almost perfect laptop. From the look at the specs of the T420, Lenovo just stepped perfect up a notch. I hope i get to experience such a amazing computer for my self! Thanks thinkpadtoday

  337. Cindy Qinn on March 28th, 2011 2:45 pm

    My company provide ThinkPad for work. For more than 10 years, I have had 600E, T30, T40, T61, and Now T400. By far, ThinePad is the best laptops I’ve tried. I did went to Staple to try other brand laptops and I’ve never like them like I like ThinkPad.

    Now, my kids are growing up and I am thinking to get them ThinkPads too.

  338. AR on March 28th, 2011 4:01 pm

    I like thinkpads because I believe they have superior build quality and longevity than other laptops. I’m coming off a Dell Latitude and think the T-series build quality is miles ahead. I’m not looking for flashy colors or anything. I just want a machine that melts away and becomes invisible when I am using it. The T-series does just that. Others do not. I have a Dell Latitude that I am not that happy with for various reasons, and I want to win the T420 to rid me of this monster. I have an old school T41 that I retired, but I miss that trusty machine.

  339. John Harris on March 28th, 2011 9:39 pm

    Ever since I repaired/troubleshooted Thinkpads in college as a student IT tech(we had the Thinkpad U program), I’ve been impressed with their functional design, great build quality, and lack of bloatware. Couldn’t afford a laptop for most of college, but now I’m shopping around for my own and Thinkpad was the obvious first choice!

  340. liuchong on March 29th, 2011 2:18 am

    sorry,i don’t know there can’t use Chinese character. so latest message show everybody a lot of ??????? therefore,i repeat in english.
    i was used a series of thinkpad laptop such as T41,T43,T61. i’m using T400 laptop now. i’m a thinkpad crazy fans. she always be good partner for our engineer.

  341. Christopher Wen on March 29th, 2011 3:08 am

    I want to win the ThinkPad T410 because i need a laptop for grad school and I’ve never owned my own laptop in high school. I’ve always used the same desktop since high school and i am now a senior in college going to grad school. I like Thinkpad laptops because although some may say they are not aesthetically pleasing, i happen to think that the design is perfect for those who are into serious work, academic or even some gaming usage as well as obviously the functional capacity of the thinkpad. My parents use the T61 as their work laptop and really like it. I have experienced the uniqueness and power of the thinkpad laptop such as the T61 and would like to have one for myself!

  342. Xiao Zhou on March 29th, 2011 9:45 am

    I just like the new T420. It is a really great calculating tool and has very stable and high performance. Nobody would want to miss it.

  343. youyi on March 29th, 2011 11:39 am

    I am thinking of replacing my T61p which has its display card problem. I decided also for another thinkpad whose quality is amazing except for this damm displaycard. I hope new generations of thinkpads do not have such problems!!

  344. Nelson Cortés on March 29th, 2011 2:27 pm

    I refused for almost 7 years to utilize a notebook Thinkpad therefore myself did not like its seriousness . I was 7 years using diverse brands and suffering as the lavish son and now that I am a consultant of business for Latin America I Know the only machine that can accompany me in this trip through the Bussines life is the Thinkpad Series T. Never I have used a Thinkpad before and I do not need more time to look at now I expect to buy or acquire the T420s ó T520

  345. Yang Zhou on March 29th, 2011 3:03 pm

    I love ThinkPads because they represent the function over form philosophy that I value. I’ve owned a T42p it was the most usable and most reliable computer I’ve ever owned. The T420 is yet another progressive evolution of the ThinkPad line with Intel’s amazing new Sandy Bridge processors and I’ll expect nothing less out of it than I’ve come to expect out of all ThinkPads.

  346. Howard on March 29th, 2011 5:18 pm

    I’ve been working in IT for over 10 years, and one of the benefits of being a Desktop Manager is that I get the latest models before they trickle down. So I have literally repaired and imaged hundreds of ThinkPads over the years and just love them.
    Started with the venerable bricks (600, 600a, 600e) then we got some thin and light T20/T21/T22/T23. IBM came onsite to demo their new T30 but we only used those for awhile before replacing with tons of T41/T42/T43. I still have a couple of those lying around the house and they work just fine with XP. Even my T22 I was able to give away to a high school kid to use for surfing and simply word processing. Of course still love my T60 even though one died with bad GPU which I couldn’t replace.
    With next day support, I have had IBM techs come to my house to replace cracked LCDs and even a mainboard. Whenever I call in the afternoon for a bad keyboard it arrives the next morning for me to swap. I love how I can confidently open the lid with one hand and not worry about creaking hinges. They’re taken more than their share of falls and keep on chugging away.
    My current company uses HP unfortunately, but I would love love love to get my hands on the new T420 to upgrade my T60 at home. It’ll definitely be another model that my little kids won’t be able to break.

  347. Almond Cariaga on March 29th, 2011 6:08 pm

    thinkpad offer absolute performance when it comes to work…i myself utilizes different types of IBM thinkpad including lenovo notebooks and some ideapads..i noticed that they can withstand on severe usage without affecting its addition, it is very user friendly when it comes to keyboard and mousepad designs i know that engineers took a long time thinking what is the best for the end users..I am a member of technical support team on an educational institution and not only notebooks are able to carry-out these features but also in our servers including legacy servers that until now, still running on smooth phase…

  348. Tran Duc Hung on March 29th, 2011 7:23 pm

    I love ThinkPads, i have use ThinkPads as T23, T42, X200 and now i using x201, it very good for my job.

  349. David Oakford on March 29th, 2011 7:25 pm

    I have a t410. like it very much

  350. David Oakford on March 29th, 2011 7:27 pm

    I own a Lenove Thinkpad t410. It is a great laptop. The only problem is the SMTP support is lacking in OS/2. Plus the wireless is not supported in os/2 either. besides that it is a great computer. I took it to India for 2 months and it worked flawlessly.

  351. FUN on March 29th, 2011 9:17 pm

    You changed the rules to your contest, you changed the item offered, and you changed the end date. That is ridiculous. I am seriously offended by this. As far as I am concerned, you are liars. You made a deal and you broke that deal. That is dishonest and dishonorable. I can’t believe you did that. How can I trust anything you say or do ever again? How do I know you won’t push this back again and again perpetually and never actually give a laptop away? How can I believe that this laptop is good? How can I believe that you will hold a legitimate drawing if you ever do decide to give away a laptop? How will I know that it isn’t refurbished? You lost all credibility by doing this. I have to think about whether I will continue to be in this or not. It is up to my greed or desire to win to offset your lie. Shame on you Mr Orford. Shame on you.

  352. Simon on March 29th, 2011 10:03 pm

    I’ve had a SL410 14″ for over a year now and I must say it’s the perfect companion for engineering school. It is fast, reliable, not too heavy, fits properly in the backpack with other books and papers. I have installed many software like matlab, pspice, maple and the run flawlessly, even in multiuple instances.
    I would like to get the t410 or t420 to enjoy more battery life due to the new icore CPU, that way I would go for a whole day at school/work without the need to plug it in.
    That’s it

  353. Qijin He on March 30th, 2011 7:50 pm

    I am thinking about buying a T series right now. The reason for my love into it is the stability it always possesses.

  354. Jonathan Baltasar on March 31st, 2011 9:07 am

    I have always thought the ThinkPads were a fantastic laptop, one of the very best! I have not been lucky enough to own one and after doing extensive research on laptops (even using the information found on this website!), I know I will be buying a ThinkPad as my next laptop. The quality, the performance, and the durability of the ThinkPad have won me over completely. I cannot wait to own one!

  355. Qijin He on March 31st, 2011 10:32 am

    I am thinking about buying a T series (either T410 or T420) right now. The reason for my love into it is the stability it always possesses. I hope the graphics is also OK. This brand has very good image and I am very happy to have a try.

  356. ghassan on April 8th, 2011 9:10 am

    i am using a t60p for the last 3 years, i am still happy with the performance but that was still IBM,, i am still not sure about the quality of Lenovo whether ThinkPad will be in the same level or Lenovo will have a different strategy.

  357. Vincent Huynh on April 8th, 2011 4:13 pm

    The Lenovo/IBM Thinkpad series has had a long line of success in the history. Considering how long they’ve been successful, they have a successful formula in their hands for their target consumers. Many of the features the Thinkpads hold are very practical and useful for different applications, depending on the consumers. The series holds a very professional appearance as well. If the brand and products continue with their good direction, then the Thinkpads will definitely continue for a long time to come.

    I wan’t to buy a thinkpad because i’m a physics student and I need to run some programs and made some compilation that require high level of precessing. I haven’t had a ThinkPad yet but a friend bought one so many years ago when he started the undergraduate and now, his in his PhD, he has change it after pass ~9 years. 9 years of performance with his laptop.
    I want to have a similar history to say.

  359. Anup on April 9th, 2011 10:49 am

    I’ve used ThinkPads for the past 2 years and I’m leaning towards saying that my X200 is probably the best notebook I’ve ever used, for me its ThinkPad or not. The build quality is excellent and the system feels very durable. It’s quite lightweight, although I’m only getting about 6 hours of life out of a 9-cell battery. The power is definitely there as well… I’m a system administrator so I like to carry a small, fast laptop with me all the time. This ThinkPad has never let me down. I can also run some light games on here, as well.

    Ergonomically it’s a great system as well… it’s got a full-sized keyboard, and the WXGA resolution is a great upgrade from the previous X60/X61. Typing and other keyboard work for long stretches is a breeze, although my hands do feel a little cramped from the short palmrest. The X200 also runs very cool… it’s a notebook you can actually use on your lap, if so inclined.

    If you’ve been looking at netbooks and like the size and weight, but wanted something with more guts, this might be a great machine for you. I recommend everyone in my office to switch to Thinkpads and until now as far as 6 people have switched to Thinkpads from their Dells and HP’s. ThinkPads are the way to go.

  360. david on April 9th, 2011 11:27 am

    i want to love my thinkpad i havent owned one yet. but the reviews look good and it will be my next purchase.

  361. Nadir on April 10th, 2011 1:02 am

    Most reliable notbook, it is solid both in structure and performance. Data is more secure ,bcz of of its hdd failure rate is very low. I don’t want take any risk about my data. I have been using T61 since 3 yrs. I never face any problem in this machine. I read the feature of T420 it is very updated features of the time and price wise is affordable.

    Thank you lenovo for having such a reasearch team always keep Lenovo such a compititive edge

  362. Eason on April 12th, 2011 5:08 am

    Thinkpads are the best laptops I’ve ever touched. Unfortunately, as a poor college student new models are always out of my budget. I love the classic style and awesome durability that the thinpad offers. The T line in particular is extremely exciting, though the Xs are a very close second. Winning this wold be pretty awesome.

  363. tomsawyer on April 13th, 2011 11:51 am

    i love thinkpad..especially the torture test..its amaze me so much.i own a thinkpad edge very happy with design and a powerful machine.
    i used to edit videos and slideshows as a hobby and sometimes to never failed me.we this very happy.More POwer thinkpadmaniacs!!!

  364. Srihari Sridharan on April 15th, 2011 12:01 pm

    I am currently using Thinkpad Edge 14 and it is an amazing machine to work with. I use it for my official and professional needs and it is the best laptop that I have used or come across. I am even thinking of getting an Thinkpad X220 as it is the best ultraportable to be released shorly.

  365. Joe on April 15th, 2011 1:46 pm

    From day 1 to the present, since introduction of the Thinkpad it is still bar none the best build/designed laptop.

  366. Are Willey on April 15th, 2011 1:53 pm

    I like the ThinkPad because it’s like an exotic sport car on my desk: sleek, black, and incredibly fast.

  367. Jeff Schaffzin on April 15th, 2011 6:06 pm

    I have used IBM products, primarily Thinkpads for as long as I can remember. When I was in college back in the dark ages (early 1990s), a friend showed me his 701C with the butterfly keyboard and immediately fell in geek-love.

    Since then, I have had the opportunity to use Thinkpads with a number of companies and became more impressed with them with each passing generation. Not only are they built to last (a major plus for this klutz!), they always had great keyboards (not mushy at all), bright displays and are incredibly easy to upgrade. I have liked them so much that I bought a number of them for my personal use and convinced family and friends to ditch their consumer-grade pieces of junk for these wonders of modern engineering.

    In fact, that friend that I mentioned at the beginning of this document has over 10 of them for personal use and has a bunch more that were given to him by the companies he has worked with over the years as well.

    PS I am typing this on my Thinkpad T60p that looks as good as the day I bought it… but I definitely am planning to upgrade soon… I wonder what I should get next.

  368. Vadim on April 17th, 2011 1:27 pm

    As a systems engineer, I need a fast, secure and reliable tool for the job. I have many years of use notebooks Lenovo thinkpad series from T50 to the T410s. In practice, I became convinced that in its class and price / quality ratio of the best products do not have.

  369. khalid on April 17th, 2011 2:04 pm

    I have always thought the ThinkPads were a fantastic laptop, one of the very best! I have not been lucky enough to own one and after doing extensive research on laptops (even using the information found on this website!), I know I will be buying a ThinkPad as my next laptop. The quality, the performance, and the durability of the ThinkPad have won me over completely. I cannot wait to own one!

  370. william on April 17th, 2011 2:43 pm

    I like the ThinkPad simply because it is the best. enough said.

  371. Lech Bekesza on April 18th, 2011 3:25 pm

    Lenovo Thinkpad T-Series laptops, in their ever-morphing composition but unchaning substratum, have been my constant companion for the past decade. To date, only my God and my wife could claim my higher allegiance. The machines have proven faithful compatriots in the daily battles of trying to get some thinking done in the midst of our ever-dumbing universe. By the way, the hinges are still as tight as they were the day I got my last model which is more than I can say for most parts of my body. Go Lenovo!

  372. Susan DeMaio on April 18th, 2011 5:56 pm

    What’s not to love. A quality computer with a great reputation, customer service is #1, a classy, professional design with a build quality second to none! I love the portability of the x series. The convenience of being able to carry it with you is great. The new version of the T series look fabulous. It’s nice to know that Lenovo is always ahead of the pack, bringing us top of the line computers.

  373. Zak on April 19th, 2011 8:32 am

    I purchased my first and only ThinkPad 310ED in 1996. Fifteen years later and it still works wonderfully. I am thoroughly impressed with its quality, user-friendly features as well as its good-looking lines. ThinkPad laptops rock!

  374. Mathew on April 21st, 2011 7:34 pm

    I recently got a used IBM Thinkpad, from back in 2002, and 9 years later it is still working. As a computer enthusiast I think ThinkPads are the best laptops availiable to both consumers and business users simply because laptop’s are rather frail and do not last as long. They need to be durable otherwise they won’t last. With laptops’s outer shell is just as important as the internal components especially if you plan to have it for more than several years. They’re simple, powerful, mobile and made of steel, tell me another laptop that has a ThinkPad’s level of Calibur…I can’t think of any.

  375. Tony Higgins on April 22nd, 2011 10:24 am

    I’ve been involved in IT since the birth of the PC, and I’ve used ThinkPads since they were first released. I have also (through my work) used virtually every other brand of portable – and when I spend my own money, it’s always a ThinkPad. Durable, reliable, powerful, and support that’s the best in the field – as an IT professional and consultant, I need everything that ThinkPad offers.

  376. Ronghui Li on April 22nd, 2011 10:27 am

    Thinkpads are well recognized as solid and reliable notebooks. At the very beginning I see a thinkpad notebook, I can’t help liking it. Among the various series, I think T and X series are my favorites. X220 has a great improvement compared to the last generation by providing an iPS choice. But the 16:9 ratio really annoys me. T420s is also a great model. But sadly, it does not have the iPS option. I hope Lenovo really have to think about the needs of the users and comes up with a perfect computers.

    I have had five Thinkpad laptops over the years. I think there is no better laptop in terms of reliability and features. My Thinkpads have survived drops, spills and an amazing number of crumbs — and they just keep on going. I can’t wait to try the T series.

  379. Justin on April 22nd, 2011 11:53 am

    I’m currently using a Thinkpad T60 as my main laptop. After getting very accustom to using the track point I really couldn’t imagine going back to using a regular track pad. I’m a student and clumsy at times so I need something very durable to withstand my clumsiness. Although my t60 is still going strong it would be nice to have something newer and more powerful. I currently do not have the fiances to afford a new one from Lenovo. Would really like to find out if the new sandy bridge chips are all their supposed to be.

  380. nathan on April 23rd, 2011 2:27 pm

    Thinkpads have pointernubs, and the scroll button — does anything else need to be said?

    I have an x61t with the 1400×1050 screen

  381. Aguang Dai on April 24th, 2011 10:44 am

    I have been using T61 for 4 years. Now it’s still very good, although maybe a little bit slow. It’s solid, stable. It’s always cool and quiet, that’s what I like it most. Now I’m looking for a new one, thinking about X220 or X201T. I already have another IdeaPad one, so I need a small, compact, light one which I can carry away all the time. Now it’s about the price, not about the quality.

  382. xiaobo gu on April 24th, 2011 11:59 am

    T and X series have better heat control and low noise,trackpoint is a plus

  383. Andy on April 24th, 2011 2:44 pm

    I would love to own one of these durable machines.

  384. Sergey Li on April 24th, 2011 10:09 pm

    When I saw specs for this laptop I was impressed by design and configuration. It is the best laptop combining excellent performance and price. Best value for business people who wants power on road.

  385. Tony on April 25th, 2011 11:29 am

    I love the Thinkpad because it is durable with a high performance and lower price compared to Dell and HP.

  386. Darius on April 25th, 2011 12:52 pm

    I love thinpad, becouse I think IBM (Lenovo) computers is the best!

  387. Raul Gonzalez on April 25th, 2011 2:21 pm

    As a very happy and proud past owner of a Thinkpad T400 but sadly had to sell it last year to cover my travel expensive to Germany to attend a court hearing to try to bring my Beautiful 3 year old daughter back home to the U.S.but sadly it did not happen her name is Theda Gonzalez she is a beautiful angel but her mother decided to
    despairer with her again just the day before the court hearing so again my daughter and I are still victims of parental kidnapping since May of 2009 for cruel and unjustified reasons and I haven’t seen my daughter since and at this point I don’t know her whereabouts in Germany because her mother and her family are doing everything possible to hide her from me and German authorities since there is a return order to the U.S. by the German Court in place for the reason she was taken out illegally from U.S. against my consent and in violation of California court custody orders of 50/50 custody and now I have to travel back to Germany soon to help search for my daughter and it will be helpful to me if i could have a laptop for my travel that is very durable and dependable like my old Thinkpad so I won’t have to deal with the difficult ordeal of not having a laptop with me in Germany to communicate with U.S. officials and all the wonderful people who are helping me bring my Beautiful daughter back home.
    Thank you.

  388. Sergey Li on April 25th, 2011 7:07 pm

    I never owned Thinkpad. I’ve had Compac in the past. Now I have aged Sony Vaio and Fujitsu at home, and for my job I use 5 years old slow Dell Latitude. Last few months I was looking at different upgrade options. I do a lot of simulation and I need quite powerful system. When I saw specs for ThinkPad T410 I was impressed by design and excellent configuration. It is the best laptop combining excellent performance and price. Best value for business people who wants power on road.

    I really love Thinkpad notebooks. I had an experience with sony, hp, toshiba notebooks before. But Thinkpad is best of the best. I have used x200s model which is a awesome and perfect one for me. TP 420 model is also a great machine for anybody to use it for business, study or entertainment etc. I strongly recommend you for buying Thinkpad notebook! Thank you Thinkpad!

  392. Tony on April 28th, 2011 7:16 am

    I have a thinkpad X61 which is so durable. I drop it on the ground several times and it still works fine. I upgrade the memory and hard drive and it show me a great performance. I like it very much.

  393. Jose on April 29th, 2011 9:14 am

    I hadn’t noticed about thinkpad laptops until 2 years. I didn´t figure out why people enjoy these laptops, so I decided to look for more things on the Internet and asking people who have it.

    What I really liked about thinkpad laptop is that these laptop are so resistant, I have it a thinkpad t41 that was a gif from my boss and these laptop worked excellent. Instead of other laptop that just have a life cycle of 1-2 years.

    Noawadays I’m looking which laptop suits me, but I am sure that no matter the laptop I choose that laptop will do honour to the name “thinkpad”.


  394. Mike R on April 29th, 2011 10:01 am

    Purchased a couple of L510′s for my two kids last summer. Both were going away to college. Both units have held up to the abuse a couple of college kids can dish out and have worked flawlessly so far. I’m confident that both laptops will last them through their college years and beyond.

Both units have held up to the abuse a couple of college kids can dish out and have worked flawlessly so far. I’m confident that both laptops will last them through their college years and beyond. Being that I’m sending two kids through College (Can you say poor!) which will last another 3-4 years(assuming they graduate within that time), it would be nice to have the T420 for myself as my home desktop is over 8 years old and living on borrowed time.

  396. Con on April 30th, 2011 8:27 am

    Thinkpad provides a best performance against laptops of other vendors with same configuration.

  397. Bryan Nguyen on April 30th, 2011 3:14 pm

    I have never own a Thinkpad in my life. However, I owned a Dell and currently using an Alienware for schooling and gaming purposes. The reason why I want aThinkpad is because it would be perfect for me to start dental school at Temple University next year. I need a laptop that is reliable, battery efficient, and durable to study and travel along with me on the subway. I know I can find all of these features in the legendary name of the Thinkpad. Winning the T420 would greatly help me to achieve in dental school. Which will translate into greater achievement for me in improving the oral health of underserved populations.

  398. Bill D on May 2nd, 2011 8:07 pm

    Let me count the ways I love ThinkPads: They’re build like a Roman road. They can stand up to the daily abuses I put them through. They’re well thought out by the Lenovo engineers; they’re not just a bunch of components screwed together like some other manufacturers (HP). ThinkPad are trustworthy and reliable machines. I currently have an ThinkPad x41t, a ThinkPad T400s, and I have an X220t on the way.

  399. LIU YI on May 3rd, 2011 10:26 am

    I have one X201i and will buy other one for my sister tell you why love the thinkpad?always good performance the light body and hard structure of course I like black things and not a app fan so….It is easy to choose the thinkpad

  400. fei gao on May 6th, 2011 7:44 am

  402. ze on May 6th, 2011 5:32 pm

    Thinkpad is the best laptop and the most trusted friend in the world.
    I have used the model, R60i, for almost 4 yours. It is cheap with high quality. Many of my friends used other models such as X60, T60p, Edge, SL 400 and so on. All of them praised the thinkpad with superb stablity and high level performance. It is obviously one of the best engineering design in the world. It is more than a laptop and it is more than an electronic product. It is a the creation of the smart and thinking minds of the humanity.

  403. Dorian Key on May 7th, 2011 6:49 pm

    I love the Thinkpad because it shouts out you’re serious about one thing: Business. I work in Corporate Finance and everyone uses Thinkpads here at the office and at home. It tells me I am serious about my work, corporate lifestyle, and success. It is the only laptop for the serious business professional.

  404. M Kushnier on May 10th, 2011 2:07 pm

    I use a T510 at work and love it, It would be sweet to win a T420 for home use.

  405. Jacob on May 10th, 2011 6:28 pm

    I love all thinkpads because they are durable

  406. Christian on May 11th, 2011 2:47 am

    I own a ThinkPad X61 tablet and a ThinkPad W701ds (the “Beast”) and I absolutely love both. The ThinkPad tablet has been invaluable at times in creating graphics and presentations because of its touch screen and stylus. It’s also handy for taking notes in situations where typing on a laptop might seem rude or out of place. My W701ds I absolutely LOVE because it’s just so damn powerful and well thought out. I even use the extra slideout screen and the Wacom graphics tablet a great deal. This thing eats MacBook Pros for breakfast!!! And both ThinkPads are just perfect for my consulting work because they are so well-designed and geared specifically toward business users – from the ThinkVantage utilities, to the spill resistant keboard, to security features and protection features.

  407. Dan on May 11th, 2011 8:22 am

    Bottom line – I have most other major brands and nothing compares. I have one for work and need one for home use.

  408. nolan on May 11th, 2011 3:57 pm

    I had owned Thinkpad X31,X61. And planning to buy X201.
    I like it’s appearance and performance.

  409. Bob Follmer on May 11th, 2011 7:25 pm

    For over two years our company supplied me with a Think Pad which I used. I found it to be highly reliable, easy to use, easy to carry and transport in my vehicle. I never during that period of time found it to be defective in any manner nor of need to be repaired. It has a solid feel and is the most reliable laptop I have used. Now I want my own personal one.

  410. M Kushnier on May 12th, 2011 6:43 am

    I use a T510 at work and I love the thing. It is more than powerfull enough to run all of my engineering applications. If Lenovo laptops perform this well on the job I can’t wait to try one out at home. Thanks guys for offering a quality product backed up by excellent customer service.

  411. Tim Pritchard on May 15th, 2011 10:19 pm

    I use to have a work furnished ThinkPad L410 and it was an exceptionally reliable laptop with incredably long battery life compared to my current **** Laptop. I never realized how great it was till it was gone.

  412. Joe Luppino-Esposito on May 17th, 2011 10:44 pm

    You have to love Thinkpads because they are so durable and reliable. There is no way you can get along with just a regular old Dell anymore. No consumer junk for me. If I want performance and a decent price, I go with Thinkpad.
    I’ve been able to bum a Thinkpad T61 from friends when my old machine died, and I’m dying to get one of my own. I’m a recent law school grad with a bar exam coming up, and I need something reliable to get me through two days of testing. A new Thinkpad would easily handle that, and very well, I can imagine.

  413. Craig M on May 18th, 2011 6:02 am

    Great keyboard, great durability. A new computer will help me introduce my child to computers, without the worry of him destroying my computer or physically destroying his – the durability of a ThinkPad is needed.

  414. Asadum on May 19th, 2011 5:29 am

    Thinkpads are too sexy and cool that i fell in love with them in first site yeah they are professional as well as Cool…..

  415. Kai Presler on May 19th, 2011 11:55 am

    I use nothing but Thinkpads for on-the-go work. Unlike more and more laptops, which focus more on “attractive” looks, I prefer the understated Thinkpad look. The design hasn’t changed in a decade, and I like it that way. Thinkpads also take a beating: I’ve never had one fail due to user damage. To this day, I still use my Thinkpad T42.

  416. NS on May 21st, 2011 8:38 am

    I have an older Thinkpad T30 and it has lasted me years without a single problem! I’m looking into buying a new laptop and it’s definitely going to be a Thinkpad because I love everything about them, from the look to the feel of it. I can’t imagine ever having a laptop of another brand.

  417. Christopher Douglas on May 21st, 2011 9:47 am

    Thinkpads will always be the best.

  418. Srihari Sridharan on May 23rd, 2011 10:21 am

    I own a thinkpad edge 14 and it is really amazing at work and home. Thinkpads are truely professional and great in quality.

  419. Kim Farrell on May 24th, 2011 5:21 pm

    I have been doing extensive research before obaining my next laptop. I read and read numerous articles about various laptops, and got quite frrustrated with all the confusing and contradictive opinions/advice. But then something wonderful happened, I just knew – this content feeling took place in my soul,, because my choice became crystal clear,, “get the Thinkpad Notebook – I had found my answer . It became clear that Lennova produces high quality laptops, with excellent keyboards and nice screens, which stood out amongst all the others I reviewed. I am absolutely certain that Lennova Thinkpads are superior and will last for a long time. This is what I want in a laptop computer. To further support my decision, I noticed when making a deposit at my Bank (Wells Fargo) that their new computers were all the Lennova Brand. I liked their keyboards, I liked their screens, they were just as I had imagined them to be. What an awesome job Lennova is doing in the computer field!

  420. Ronald Singson on May 25th, 2011 12:02 pm

    I love ThinkPads for their understated elegance and sturdiness, its looks convey a sense of purpose and meaning. To top it all, its got the best keyboard on a laptop, a joy to type on and the evergreen trackpoint. The new T series represent the epitome of the Thinkpad evolution and would love to own one. Am still hanging on to my beloved Thinkpad z61t.

  421. . Aldwyth on May 25th, 2011 5:00 pm

    first computer was IBM laptop back in 93? loved it – taught granddaughter how to spell name on it. still working great – regular upgrades until many years later drove off with it on the top of car. like first love, you don’t forget your first computer. want to do it again!!

  422. Eugenio Ramalho on May 29th, 2011 5:20 pm

    Great its a only word… im from Portugal so sorry abut this kind of english…
    About 1 year i had a Thinkpad T21, 6 months later i had a t40, and now i love my t61, im so in love with this wonderfull machines, that i cant stop buy more and more, i no that new model wil be suprise me, now im without cash to upgrade to another Great laptop, that give so much satisfaction an hours of pure pleasur.
    The touch is everything, no another laptop make feel like that, i feel that is alive to make me company.
    Thank you IBM/LENOVO for existing in our lives and make the World a better place.

  423. Bert Scalzo on May 30th, 2011 4:10 pm

    I’ve been using Think Pads for over a decade. I love the X and T series. I recently made the mistake of trying a non-Think Pad. I kept the unit just 30 days and then sold it on eBay for a $450 loss. I just ordered another Think Pad and I’ll never make the mistake of straying again. There is only one notebook for professionals – and it’s the Think Pad.

  424. Oren O. on June 3rd, 2011 1:23 am

    If computers were people, Macs would be the pretty little number out on the dance floor you’re trying to get with tonight. ThinkPads would be the towering lumberjack who just barged into the club reeking of man-sweat after a long day of single-handedly chopping down a forest the size of Arkansas using only his hand as the axe and who uses you as a toothpick to…oh and that’s more than fifty words. And I have a T410 right now so I’ll already be more or less used to my new T420 when I win.

  425. Rojon on June 3rd, 2011 5:20 am

    The only Laptops I have owned over the last 6 years have been Thinkpads. I still have and use my IBM Thinkpad X41 which I originally got in 2005. Just this month I bought a Lenovo Thinkpad X220 and absolutely love it! There is and never will be a better laptop than a Thinkpad because they have lived up to their reputation as being the best in quality! Furthermore, I have never met a person who owns a Thinkpad and regrets it. Although I absolutely love the ultra portability of the X series, undoubtedly my next Thinkpad will be a T series!

    I have only had handy down laptops most of my teen life. My old laptop which was a 2007 Gateway finally stop working. I have been searching for a new laptop and so far the Thinkpads are the best. I really would like to win a thinkpad edge with intel processor 7i and fingerprint scanner. Over many weeks of research, thinkpads have blown my mind with there great quality and performance specs. I love thinkpads and hope to have one for a long long time.

    I think I’m in love. It’s not a woman… but just as beautiful and stunningly captivating. It’s not a car, and yet it is exquisitely stylized and exudes an aura of overwhelmingly impressive functionality and power. The object of my desire: a Thinkpad!

    I would like to win the t420 because me doughter is going to college and needs a laptop realy bad . I have known that the quality of the thinkpads are superb that of any other laptop. Needless to say they are really nice and have a very high quality feel .I have used thinkpads at work for programing purposes and liked them alot . I have used hp laptops but dont last much at all not to mention dell. I really would like to win this laptop so that I can give it to my daughter.

Got something to say?
