Its a toss up between the macbook, macbook pro or a think pad. What do you guys think.
MBP or thinkpad. Based on price, thinkpad.
Im having trouble justifying spending the money on the MBP...which thinkpad would you recommend?
I picked up a T61 15.4 widescreen, core 2 duo T7500 2.2, 1 gig ram, 100 gig 7200 rpm hd, dvd burner, bluetooth...$1146. It should get here fri, I cant wait.
only for a shitty paperweight.
Im not buying a shitty laptop...it was either between a macbook or a thinkpad and I got a good price on a thinkpad.
lol @ shitty
You guys just sound bitter with your constant and never-ending dell hate. Companies change, grow and learn from the past....especially when sales drop. Isn't it possible that the company that burned you so badly in the past has evolved?? Where's the forgiveness in your heart?? Where's the love??
lol ok...but seriously Dell isn't nearly as bad as you guys make them sound. Fuck I've heard way more probs about those fucking Macs that are supposed to "just work" than the Dells.
Just got my T61p... loving it! Just got my RAM upgrade today, and it makes the laptop so freaking awesome. T7500 2.2 3GB (well, 4GB, but i only have Vista 32bit ) 80GB HDD, Vista Ultimate. It ended up being a bit more than Randomguy's, but work paid, so i don't mind much.
yea I ended up with 3GB myself. Wanted 4GB, but no point, really.
I gotta get more ram in mine...whenever it gets here damn you Lenovo, I want my laptop .
Mine did take a while... i placed the order on Sept 30th, didnt get it till Oct 18th. About 2.5 weeks. Not bad, but i am a very impatient person when it comes to new tech toys.
Its total garbage...they said it was going to ship on the 24th, so I check today and the website says 30th. I call up and the idiot says that its gonna ship the 26th. I ask him for written verification (email or something) and he said hes not authorized to do that...so frustrating.
I ordered a z61t last monday, got it yesterday

edit: oh and winXP pro, didn't have any bloatware when i got it, too.
