I just find it funny how the average "consumer" can make such wide and all encompassing recommendations based on limited information. I would like to think I have a education view on this subject; visiting manufacturing sites in Japen, China, Taiwan, US, analyzing competitive info, reviewing fault rate data from service providers, etc.
But even with this experience I could not make some of the statements some of you are making.

Useless post, You have all of this experience with three companies and yet people who do not have the experience like you do are actually responding to OP while you're over in some corner with fan blowing on you trying to make you hair flow in the wind like you're some god and better than all of us.

To be honest you have no reason to post in here when you do not contribute to OP's question.

BTW OP Lenovo is good brand (for business users) on laptops.

I have already earlier in the thread....but thanks. But, my hair was wet as I just got out of the shower, but thanks to your post it explains why it dried so quickly.

Edit: Re-reading my post, it comes off 100% douche. Won't take it back because its out there.

My point is, offering personal experience is one thing (purchases made, history first hand with pcs inclusive of family and maybe a stretch of friends). You can provide feedback that is personal and should be void of statements like "ALL TOSHIBA's SUCK!"

Then you have those that "I read that HPs are horrible and that Toshiba's are the best quality". Again, no value in posting or making wide sweeping generalizations on Vendors our the brands/sub brands.

Then you have those that take it all in and make wide statements on product that they have never even owned.

My point is (my last line in my post above) that even with my personal experience in the field, I can NOT make statements like those I see in this thread and in other similar threads. NOT that I am uber... it it was, I would be proclaiming the generalizations stated above.

Something that is "high quality" has nothing to do with empirical data - "high quality" simply means that it is something that the customer wants. If I want an IPS screen, I don't care if there is a magical laptop out there that is made from unicorn hair and fairy blood which has a 0% failure rate and can transform into a dancing Ninja Turtle - if it has a TN panel, it is "lower quality" to me. I'll still take the laptop with a 15% failure rate if it has a nice IPS screen with low reflectivity.

Furthermore, you made the mistake of assuming that every person in this thread, besides yourself, is an "average consumer". You made that generalization even though you have less knowledge of us than we do of laptops.

It's not like you have at any point offered any evidence for your claims, other than "I'm a pro." I cited a study and you offered no rebuttal to it.

If you want to contribute to this thread you should offer some form of empirical evidence, that goes for everyone.
