    Default Which of these 3 laptops is best?

    Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E530 3259T7M

    Samsung 350V5C-S09AU

    Toshiba Satellite Pro L850 (PSKDLA-0CE00S)

    All 3 around the $1300 mark. Never owned any of those brands (currently have an Asus) but overall, which of those is the "best"?

    My brother has a Lenovo Edge E530 and it looks and feels really solid. If you buy it off lenovo.co.nz you can also upgrade the screen to 1600x900 for $12 which is really nice.

    I recently bought a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E530 3259T7M to replace my Desk Top which had expired. It came with Windows 8 and a whole lot of rubbish. Wiped the lot and installed Windows 7 Ultimate. No problem downloading the drivers from Lenovo. Very good so far. Has good sound and clear screen. The Keyboard is a bit odd, the F keys operate with the FN key. Pause/Break is reached by fn P, no pause key. Cool running.

    The lenovo has the best cpu (only marginally over the Samsung), the other two have the better graphics card.

    I take it you got a free copy from MSDN or something like that? Nobody in their right mind pays the asking price for Win7 Ultimate.
    Intel Core i5-3470 CPU
    8GB DDR3 RAM
    1TB HDD
    AMD Radeon HD 6870 graphics card
    Enermax Tomahawk II 500W PSU
    Antec 300 case
    Win7 Pro (Action Pack :D)

    surprisingly quick even without an SSD

    I'd go with the Toshiba. They seem pretty reliable ..

    Yeah you're right got the 635m confused with the 630m. 635m>7670m>630m.

    Lenovo seems the way to go
