    The HP has 20GB more hard drive, a dedicated graphics card (albeit not a great one) and double the RAM of the Lenovo.

    The Lenovo is .1kg lighter, half a centimeter thinner, has a fingerprint reader.

    Oh, and the Lenovo isn't an HP.

    :P

    If you want quality, lenovo, if you want better performance, hp.
    I personaly would prob go with the hp, but if you want it to last long, go with lenovo

    Namaskar,

    I personally feel that between the two, the HP is better than the entry level Lenovo. The Thinkpad line is superior.

    If you get the HP, which I personally prefer, get the 12 cell battery.

    No, I was definately taking a jab at HP.

    I would recommend the Lenovo over the HP, but that could also be because I just bought one

    Lenovo's 3000 series are good notebooks, but Lenovo's quality shines in their Thinkpad line, not the 3000s.

    I'd probably go for the HP if performance is what matters to you and you don't mind being a bit more careful with it. The Lenovo if you want a sturdily built laptop (as compared to others in that price range, the 3000 line is very good) that'll take a moderate beating (though not the kind that thinkpads withstand) then the Lenovo would be good.

    However, it sticks out of the bottom.
