    I think we'll see the full effects of Lenovo's takeover in the upcoming period. As the IBM inventory stocks dwindle, we'll see how the manufacturing quality stands up.

    The T43 you buy today was still designed by IBM.

    Anyone know if the Z series is designed by IBM or Lenovo?

    Well that kills the deal for me. I've been shopping for a new notebook for the last two years and I've narrowed it down to about 5. But now that I've read the posted article I can countout the T42 and T43. Now I just have decide between the dell D610, X1 and Fujitsu S6240. I should have a decision in another 12 to 16 months.

    In 12 to 16 months all of those units will only be available used.

    The Z is clearly a Lenovo design.

    You shouldn't count out the T42 and T43, as the article doesn't really apply to them. Future lenovo designed products may have a decrease in quality, but the existing models are still IBM designed. All this casts doubt on is the quality of the future Z series model.
