    Default Thinkpad vs Thinkpad Edge vs Ideapad ?

    Hi,

    i am a .Net programmer and i'm going to buy a notebook as my old laptop (HP Dv2000) is not working anymore.

    first of all i know that THINKPAD IS THE BEST.
    what i am asking is if someone can explains the pros and cons of Thinkpad, Thinkpad edge and Ideapad so i can choose better with lower price.

    what is really important for me is long life (over 4years) with work everyday (15-20 hours).

    new Thinkpad edges is very interesting and a bit lower price than Thinkpad T-Series, so i'm wondering if Thinkpad edge is better than ideapad, i go for thinkpad edge?

    and ideapad have better cpu with lower price than thinkpad, so is it worth paying more for thinkpad and get lower cpu ? ( i do not plan to drop anything on my laptop or throw it away )

    i am really confused these days about buying notebook
    Thanks in advance,

    If you're working 15-20 hours a day, a ThinkPad will probably make it four years, but you may not.

    If you really want a solid, well built notebook with good support, I'd suggest sticking with the standard ThinkPads meaning the X, T, W and R series while it lasts in the outlet.

    The IdeadPads are fine for what they are, but they're a consumer based notebook, which will not offer the same levels quality as a ThinkPad.

    The Edge aren't much better from what I've seen, but experience with them is somewhat limited.

    Good luck and welcome to NBR. Feel free to hang out and contribute where you can.

    In Australia, lenovo do not sell the R series, we have the L and SL instead. Are they meant to be a replace the R series?

    L series have replaced both SL and R series.

    To the OP, i think you should consider the regular Thinkpads classic as Zaz have pointed out.

    Get the T series.

    And, for what it's worth, no one plans to drop anything on their notebook, but it still happens!

    So, does this mean that the L Series is considered to be a "real"/ "regular" ThinkPad given that at least the R Series was/ is considered to be a "real"/ "regular" ThinkPad?

    L series is pretty much same as the SL series, other than the software aspect. So unless you consider the SL series is a real Thinkpad, then the answer to your question is no.
