    I'm thinking about getting a Lenovo to replace my Dell Latitude 9100... does any retail store carry them? And i dont mean the 3000 series... i'm talkin the ThinkPad line. I may not buy it from the retail place... but i feel the need to touch and feel it before i pull the trigger on something as pricey as my build will end up being.... even tho my boss will be paying for it.

    Thoughts?

    I haven't seen the ThinkPads in retail. Only the 3000's. However, if you find one, you will be very impressed with the build quality (not necessarily the styling -- but the build quality is solid)

    Thats really why i want to find one and kinda 'feel' it out... my coworker is getting a new laptop before me... and he's priced out a HP with some nice specs for ~2k. I really want a Thinkpad... cuz i've heard great things about them... even if they cost a little more.

    Lenovo website shows these places in Baltimore. I've no idea where in Maryland you are, this is just an example.

    Even if you can't "feel" one before buying I think you should still get one. Buy it online.
    The new T61's look pretty nice.

    Well, the Office Depot near my house had one 3000 series... and it felt like a) ass or b) someone beat the shit out of it... either one.

    Johan, thanks... i will take a look at Lenovo's site to see if i can find retailers near me.... i didnt even think of checking that before.

    Get a T series not a 3000. If youre buying it because you want "solid"
