I'm looking at buying a new laptop, and I have my options narrowed down to two in particular. One is the Samsung RV511-A01, the other is the Lenovo Thinkpad Egde.
I'm a college student who uses my laptop all the time. I carry it from home to work and school, and it sees (easily) upwards of 10 hours of use each day. In fact, for it to be any less is odd for me.
Both laptops have similar specs, though the Samsung is an intel i3 core at 2.53 GHz and 15.6 inch screen, while the Lenovo is an i5 2.66 GHz with a 14in screen.
My main focus is durability and reliability, and I was told that the Lenovo is extremely durable. however, it's also been getting some bad reviews due to faulty parts, none of which seem very consistent. The Samsung has been getting good reviews, though.
My automatic tendency is to lean toward the Lenovo's hardiness, but I know next to nothing about these namebrands (except for Samsung's excellent track record with cellphones), and I'm on the fence between the two of them. Does anyone have any help or suggestions? Price is less important than durability.
Thanks in advance to everyone who replies. =D
