Ask any laptop enthusiast what the best name in laptops is. They will all admit that Thinkpads are the best.
Thinkpads are legendary in several areas:
UltraNav - This refers to their keyboard and mouse. The keyboard is soft, silent, and will last forever. The mouse offer either the standard finger tracker or the eraser head option. The eraser head is far superior to the finger track once you get used to it.
Frame (T-series): Thinkpads are durable, strong, small, and lightweight. They don't break. They last forever. They have a plain, simple, and professional look to them.
Software: They are not jammed packed with every OEM software you could ever imagine like most OEMs. They come with Thinkvantage and that is it.
Security: They have an IBM security chip on them that offers the best security on the market.
HDD Protection: They have an accelerometer that senses abrupt motions and shuts down the hard drive to protect it.
I am missing some things, but I hope that gives you an idea. Nothing can really beat a Thinkpad T XXp notebook.
