"I agonised over buying a Mac or PC. I'd been running XP on a tired old HP; my kids had crashed 2 Vista disasters and my wife was burning hard-drives on an HP. We bought 2 Macs - They worked which was a plus; no fuss anther plus.
But would they communicate seemlessly with my corporate world? "I don't think so"
Enter Lenovo. Blow it- I've heard they are the best and that's what I'm going for. 11 months later and my L412 has impressed me so much I've just bought my daughter an Edge because she too prefers the Lenovo to a Mac. It just works; is fast; has all of the connectivity of Outlook and MS Office that I need in business and I'm not struggling saving things to different formats because business loves Microsoft but Mac is pretty
It is phonominally well built-In fact it's not built it's engineered. My old HP's and Dells were nothing like as solid and they'd creek and the cooling fans would be running all the time. This is a great machine. It fires up fast and has useful features like Lenovo Internet Connectivity which gets me on-line in a wireless network as I travel a lot.
Battery life is about 4.5 hours which is enough and there is a useful 'Stretch' tool that kicks in when you get to about an hour of life.
What more can I say - it just works; performs well; is light; functional; great keyboard and stands up very well to travel and all of that airport security.
Only criticism is that 2 of the USB ports and the DSL connection are hidden below a lip which is a bit fiddly at times but otherwise I love it
