Lenovo didn't make the Thinkpad, IBM did. Then IBM sold their laptop division to Lenovo for some stupid reason.

I quite like my 380ED brick :D

I like the concept of the controllerless console though. Could be quite interesting if it worked.

Levano, Lenovo damn, it all looks the same. It will be an interesting venture though. Lenovo have no experience in the gaming market so they will either be spectacular or a failure

Lenovo are the quiet achievers of the notebook world IMO - you don't hear much about them because they don't have billion dollar marketing expenditure, but I've used their gear exclusively at work for the past 6 years, and it's never missed a beat.

I guess they're kinda like an anti-Apple - function over form.

And personally, I like their design - reminds me a bit of SWMBO. . . .chunky, and something to hang on to. . . . :xmouth:

IBM, not lenovo.

Can you even get Lenovos in NZ? I don't recall ever to have seen them in any shops?

Definitely Thinkpads are some of the toughest laptops ever made.

If I dropped my laptop like that it'd end in tears. :(
