Good PC laptops/brands? - Page 3

post #21 of 27
If you open the Hardware Maintenance Manual (HMM) for any Lenovo laptop:
If the part is a CRU########## then it is a Consumer Replaceable Unit.
If the part is an FRU########## then it is a Factory Replaceable Unit.

Any CRU you change does not void the warranty, but Lenovo will not offer support for it (which makes sense. If you replace your memory, Lenovo is not going to offer warranty service on the new memory).
Changing an FRU does void your warranty technically.

Ehh, that's interesting. Thanks for that.

Yup, great suggestions above, i have the Lenovo Y580 (700-1000$ depending on configuration), It looks like a decent laptop, but packs a good amount of power. You have the option to add an Msata SSD, and still have a HDD for media storage, and the 660m GPU in it overclocks like crazy lol... Normally people get an average of 1200Mhz from 835Mhz. It's just the best for it's price range hands down.

Here's mine... biggrin.gif

If you haven't made up your mind (or he hasn't) I would consider Clevo. These laptops sell under the Sager name but are very powerful and you can put on or take off anything that you want.

Edited to say: My work uses lenovo think pads exclusively. I did however, try out for two weeks the Carbon X1. I have to say that almost nothing compares to a high end lenovo.

I was sad when I had to give it back though we already have had a couple more come in. I am not a fan of windows 8 so I haven't had my hands on recently. The great thing about my position is trying new products since there is a dedicated budget for trying out new products.

Lenovo and Apple are 2 good laptops brands (http://thebestlaptopbrands.com/ research)

You can go to your local shop, find out what laptop you like and go on thumb.gif
