ThinkPads are great for businesses, their reliability and build quality exceed those that have the same market focus..

I'm still using my Thinkpad T61p that is about 5 years old. It still runs great.

I even play Starcraft 2 on it, with low settings mind you. biggrin.gif

Please, which ones are better? Want to go buy an HP Pavilion instead?

As long as you have Thinkpads and not Ideapads or the Essentials line (the essentials line is not bad compared to other cheap consumer laptops really) then they are some of the best on the market.

Most likely will be the same price, difference in manufacturing wage has to be factored in.

....US armed forces.... NASA.... Countless number of fortune 500 companies.

T/X/W series meet all mil specs minus submersion.

One of the lowest failure rates in the industry.

Im really wondering if there will be a price increase.

Ive currently got a T420, had a T60 and a T42 before that. They are great laptops and its good that they are producing them here.

As for pricing, consider the amount of time it'd take to assemble all the components in an assembly line style. I can easily see each worker making 2+ laptops an hour.. so what, $7 in extra cost, minus shipping cost per unit, minus import duties.. honestly, companies' reasoning to save on labor is preposterous on a unit basis, and now you're seeing some of the greediest companies (not speaking of Lenovo) shipping jobs from China to Mexico, because Chinese are paid too much! So.. hope for wage increases in China. I'd guess $4500 a year is all they're worth considering you can get someone in Mexico for just a little more, not to mention Mexicans can speak English way better than Chinese (again, no offense; Spanish has a lot of similar sounds to English).

And hope your Lenovo get out of your travel truck at the end of the day in one piece.

You didn't state whether Ideapad or Thinkpad. Ideapad is their consumer line. Either way, tablets aren't their main purpose. Their Thinkpads are still built really strong and they have the Thinkpad Japan design team retained from IBM. Foam suitcase won't help if you spill coffee on your laptop, if you drop it outside of the case, or any number of likely scenarios. I'd trust a Thinkpad in build over pretty much anything, short of Panasonic Toughbook.
