Trackpoint is my favorite feature of my Thinkpad.

I myself can vouch for this, I had a Thinkpad A series notebook for over 4 years and never had a single problem with the Thinkpad itself. I did once get a bad ram module from Crucial that caused my Thinkpad to crash. and when I called IBM tech support my call was answered in one minute by a knowledgeable guy who found the problem immediately.
You just can't go wrong with IBM notebooks, they are way ahead in quality and support of any other Notebook PC vendor.
