My college I'll be attending (UNC Chapel Hill) offers IBM thinkpads for students to buy at a discounted rate. The lowest price is 1700 for a laptop that has integrated graphics, a 1.8ghz core duo, 512 ram, and a 15.4 inch screen. That is a blatant ripoff. The only things I like on the IBM are the trackstick, and the fingerprint reader, both of which I can get extremely cheaper on the Lattitude D820, plus end up with the 512 Nvidia card, bluetooth, more memory(newegg) and a good feeling knowing I saved money.
