    that is because consumer technology falls prey largely to opinion, which is going to be based on personal experience (that is, only one person's experience with the product), advertising, etc. "this is better than that one cause i saw the commercial and bought it, and hey, it's not complete shit, it must be the brand to get."

    you're supposed to look at the monitor... anyways, as Ivy said, you could get a case skin.

    that makes two industry professionals (plus the handful i know who dont post here!) who agree.

    even if it is ugly as sin, you can make up for that in street cred. this is useful if you ever encounter a roving gang of IT employees... "hey, who's this girl on our turf? who does she think she is?!" "guys, it's cool, she's got an IBM, put away the staplers"

    this was my thinking, so i looked at what a lot of enterprises favor and went with an IBM lenova, it has been exactly what i expected. they have a reputation for being tough (they do also have magnesium frame bodies available) and reliable, even if they arent particularly flashy or "fun". the performance certainly isnt lacking either.
    Are you referring to the Thinkpad series (used to be IBM, now Lenovo)?

    I can vouch for these. I've used the T series for a while T20, T40, then T61. They are durable, light-weight and have long battery life. They also have a feature I have a hard time finding anywhere else--the little red button-mouse that I love, and other people seem to dislike (vastly easier to use than the touch pad, in my opinion).

    My corporation and others have started moving to HPs and Macs for many engineering users, lately, however. I think they have wider screens in general.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Yes, IBM/Lenovo is what was recommended to me.
