So I used to swear by Thinkpads, and used to use Lenovos for a very long time. However, nowadays I have to second-guess any of my Thinkpad decisions.

Lately, all lenovos that I've been using (X and T series) seem to be super unreliable...physically. Things like the touchpad will start to wig out after some time (so I have to disable it in the firmware). I use the keyboard pretty often, and ever since IBM sold their Thinkpad line to lenovo, their keys tend to fall part from exhaustive usage. Touchscreen is also super unreliable after a year in that it will occasionally think that you're touching some part of the touchscreen.

If you're a heavy computer user, and don't want to be planning to buy a laptop once a year (Although, I think this is the average lifetime for a laptop). I'd really consider something else. If you're only browsing the web, you use an external mouse, and are okay with having to replace it in a bit. Then you're probably fine.

I think it's okay for an entry level laptop OP. If you don't need anything too high tech, I would suggest you get that one

The big PC makers all have competent engineers and they occasionally will produce a good product, particularly for their top spec machine. For some reason people really latch onto this concept with Lenovo, but generally ignore other excellent pro grade hardware, notably from HP and Dell. I've worked with these three brands and have to say on average the HP are the best, followed by Dell, with Lenovo taking third.

You can certainly point to exceptions of this trend, and there's good and band from any group, but on average you'll pay more for less with Lenovo.

With all that shit talking out of the way, the idea that should be lauded is buying a top spec machine used rather than the walmart special garbage new. You can do this with practically any brand and come out ahead, especially when you figure that even if something needs to be replaced it won't break your budget.

Duuuuude! A Lenovo T420 is totally righteous. It's the highest of high tech, which is of course why they called it a 420. It even has a touch-sensitive bud tray built right into the middle of the keyboard. That is a Good Choice my man. Nothing says "I am the Bong Lord" like rolling in with a 420.

Might be late to the table with this reply, but yes OP, absolutely a fantastic choice in every possible way. Upgrade the HD to an SSD upgrade ram to max (8gb I think). Install linux (devuan preferably ) and rock that puppy!

>i am a retard

Yes you are. A T420 is in fact righteous and a good choice. They will last. (and the touchpad is nothing but a bud tray - you will disable it and only use the red pencil eraser mouse because if your sleeve so much as brushes the pad the cursor jumps across the screen)
