I have a Dell laptop and a Dell desktop.Desktop: Superb machine. I bought this thing almost two years ago, for under 1500, and spec-wise it is still a top notch machine. I have had zero problems with her, every program I throw at it works fantastic and is lightning fast. LCD display, gig of ram, 3.2ghz HT, 320 GB Raid HD, etc. Basically the works at a bargain basement price, no complaints. And this is considering I bought it when the Prescott was the architecture of choice; arguably the hottest, most poorly designed system ever.Laptop: Overpriced peice of trash. Works like crap. Becomes hot as a coal in about 10 minutes. Battery lasts for about 30 mins if that. Weights a ton. One thing is that the thing is hard as rock, I've accidently dropped textbooks and on this thing and it doesn't even feel them. Overall, though as far as PCs go, when it comes to laptops IBM makes hands down the best quality laptops when you account for weight, reliability, and design. With student discounts you can get a solid T60 for under 1.5k. I paid significantly more for my Dell laptop because I wanted top of the line, but shoddy designs made all my high end specs and components work like *&^% anyway.Bottom Line: Desktops, Dell is unbeatable. Laptops, Dell sucks it up.
I have a dell inspiron 6000 and someone spilled a whole glass of soda all over it...It was jacked up for about 12 hours until it dried out. It is currently in working condition. Other than that, I have had no problems.
SteveJD and Harvey - are you saying this just because of your own experience or do you believe this to be a widely accepted opinion?
hmm the z60t is kinda old (came out last year?) does anyone know if Lenovo plans to release anything new.. i want a state of the art laptop for the next 3 years
whats the advantage of the Duo Core.. more battery life? Or is it just for games and 3D design?
