Getting a new laptop soon (next 1-2 weeks) and...I like what I've built at the lenovo website, do they make a quality product?

Lenovos are great.

And a bit of friendly advice:
Check the BIOS when it arrives.
Disable Computrace permanently under the Security options, if it's there.

IBM was bought out and assimilated with the Chinese company Lenovo. Don't think that because they are run by a Chinese company that quality control has suffered as a result. Lenovo laptops are of a very good quality still.

Bump for the computrace question

Sounds like some kind of tracking software, and based on the fact that it's under BIOS security, I'm guessing it's some kind of physical location tracker or something.

I've never heard such nonsense in my life.

IBM sold its PC group, a nigh-defunct sector of the company to Lenovo for a rather small fee. Before Lenovo took over the mainstream didn't even recognize the "Think" brand.

IBM as a whole is several times the size of Lenovo, there's no comparison. There never was. IBM selling a dying part of their company to Lenovo nearly 8 years ago isn't even worth mentioning since it was Lenovo that basically built the "Think" brand up to what it is today, top of line.
