IBM = International BUSINESS
Lenovo is now producing consumer level machines.... too bad.... IMO, It's going to cheapen the Thinkpad brand.... Like Mercedes selling Yugo's so they can get in on some of that "really, seriously low end" action.....
But.... if you know about Thinkpads, and you like them, and you know why they cost what they do.... it's easy to buy one --just go to their web site..... They'll take your money, even if your 14 years old, and only want to surf porn sites... or P2P DVD's with your buddies
And you can get student discounts just for asking... 15% off, and they didn't require me to send proof (at least with me, and which I could have provided), just the name of the school.
