Buyers Remorse

Date:April 13, 2012
"I'm very dissapointed in this particular model.
One of the best machines out there, if only it was reliable. I had only Dells over a 10 year span prior to this laptop and no problems. I have had this t420s for 8 months and had a hard drive, a fan, and the Nvidia card all go out on me.
I'm a Computer Engineer myself, and I believe the fan is too small to cool the i7 quad-core and 2 graphics cards adequately. It's much smaller than any fan in my Dells, which only have 2 core Centrinos at best. This is why the fan is noisy. But be warned that if your fan suddenly ceases to be noisy, you will overheat. My graphics card suffered a nasty burn because of it.
Just make sure to buy the extended warranty if you are considering this machine."

Best Computer I've Owned

Date:August 14, 2014
"I bought a refurbished Thinkpad T420s and I absolutely love it. It has a touch screen, is extremely fast and has outstanding performance. It works better than the $500+ laptops out there.
Lenovo is the 2nd best rated computer manufacturer and seller in the world and I can see why. I personally think it should be #1, but Apple has a monopoly with the variety if their products.
I highly recommend this computer to anyone who uses laptops for casual or business use. It's slim, lightweight and packs a punch! I am now a Lenovo loyal customer. Their customer service is also phenomenal.
I wanted to see if I could have it delivered faster and it was already scheduled to be delivered by the date I needed it by."
