Dude;I love IBM thinkpads.the T series if you can swing it are a corporate class Laptop Top of the Line.If you cant go quite that much.the A,R or G series will compare with anything you can buy from Dell,HP Acer and such.The service you get from IBM after the sale is next to none from what I Hear.Look @www.thinkpads.com.The administrator of this site is Bill Morrow.He sells new and used thinkpads and may beat anyones price and he will stand behind them.AS will most anyone else at this forum

There's a whole lot of lappys on that site, along with a couple of IBM's. Both of them were in the four-digit realm.

Just be sure to get a lappy that will last you for a while, hardware wise (CPU, memory, HDD).
