Lenovo vs HP laptops

I ordered this Lenovo G560 Series 067999U Laptop from amazon last night at a score for $399.99

this morning I saw this HP, and the only thing that made me second guess myself was the fact that this one came with a HDMI port. for the same price.. meh...

Consumer laptops suck cock in general. I hated my piece of shit HP laptop. I've heard great things about the HP business line though I've never tried them. I don't know how well Lenovo's consumer line is, but it might be shit as well lol. Regarding processes, my two thinkpads (one from IBM and the other from Lenovo) both included a shit ton of processes. I did like their "tool box" where you can manage everything from one program. I dumped windows altogether though. :\

I disagree. I have an IBM built X60s and a new Lenovo built X200 Tablet and the Lenovo is equal if not better.

Oh God, I wouldn't even buy those for $200 except to resell or give to my non-existent grandmother who doesn't need anything special. A netbook with crap specs is one thing... I only need it for web browsing and e-mail. But if I'm buying a 15.6 laptop like what you have there, I'd rather just spend the extra $200 - $400 and get a proper machine. That's just me though.

Nonsense considering Lenovo had been manufacturing IBM-branded laptops for years.

That doesn't mean everything they make is gold, but many of the venerable thinkpads of years past have been manufactured by Lenovo and stamped with "IBM"

i've had both lenovo and hp consumer level laptops in the last three years.

I had to get the keyboard replaced twice for stuck keys on the ideapad and hp laptop's casing replaced for the battery tabs that broke when i clicked on the battery without using the release lever

Yup those are the worst. With the short shift keys and weird vertical enter key. Fuck the french.

Were they able to ship you the replacement parts or did you have to send in the machine? If so, how long did it take?

I had to ship it to the repair facility and they both sent me a shipping box to put the laptop with prepaid shipping label. repairs took roughly around a week.
