Is lenovo as good as the old IBMs?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I need to get a laptop for college, and I was impressed with IBM's quality on my father's old thinkpad he used for work. I realize that Lenovo owns/is IBM now, but its a China based company. Is the quality still good, and whats a good cheap model (around 500/600 dollars)?

My dad has had 2 IBM lappys so far... both have been put through the trial of kids... Broken screens, dropped on countless occasions, been battered with dodgeballs, and other unspeakable things, we fixed the screens and still worked good as new!!

There are no new lenovo thinkpads under $600. The cheapest is their 3000 series(which is unrelated to thinkpad) which the C and N models are about 699.99(on sale right now for 649.99).

It depends on what you are planning on doing with it.
