I remember looking at PC catalog for a new laptop for my uncle a year or two ago. I saw few Lenovo desktops and laptops. I thought they were just a small PC manufacturer that no one really knows about. Funny how things change so quickly overtime.

They were announced 3 weeks ago as the world's 3rd largest. Now they're the 2nd largest. Unless that article was a typo.

I'm not surprised, the build quality of Lenovo products is very good. I know a few friends who purchased notebooks recently (one for $800 AUD, the other for $850 USD) and they are both very pleased with it. The former used to use a netbook while the later used to use an Asus G73.

That says quite a lot to me, so props to you Lenovo. Just don't let your market position go to your head and start cutting back on quality.

ThinkPad line is indeed very good built quality and perfect for typing... specs rock, too. X201 has a netbook form-factor yet packs an i5, good battery life, lots of RAM and keyboard is just great. Prices can be too high at times, but I see actual build quality you're paying for, it's worth it.

IdeaPad line, however, is a bunch of underpowered ugly POSs with poor driver support. I never got Wi-Fi to work on my mom's S10-2 under pre-installed XP, so I wiped it and installed Win7 - all good. Why not do it from the start? S10-3 had Starter on it, at least...
