My boss is looking for a new laptop to use for traveling and for weekend. He is not very well with change and so I am avoiding Windows 8 like the plague. He wants something around 14” to 16” screen. I think he will need around an i5 Intel processer. He don’t need a fancy graphics card or anything else gimmicky, just something he can use for MS word and power point. Our budget is around $400 to $600. He also is takes horrible care of his stuff; he has broken 2 Ac adapters by dropping them and his old laptop screen is not able to stay up on its own.

 

Anyone have some laptop suggestions?

 

So far I have liked “Acer Aspire V5-571-6614 Notebook”

However I haven’t found any reviews yet.

Does he have a budget and i believe Lenovo's Thinkpad line of laptops would be able to take the "belting".

Like I said above our budget is around $400 to $600. What is so good about Lenovo's Thinkpad? I have not heard of them before.

The ThinkPads are well known for their durability and reliability. The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge would fit the budget and the uses.

Hi, Why a Lenovo Thinkpad, They are a business model. The Non Thinkpad laptops by Lenovo are not business models.

 

What sets a business model apart, Durability, Data security features. Hard Drive impact protection mechanisms.

Also Lenovo has a large Repair network in the USA. That means that instead of shipping it off if you ever do need warranty, You take it to the local "Authorized Service Provider" (ASP). They Overnight the parts that are needed.

 

Many levels of warranty. If You get the accidental damage warranty.

 

I knew a ASP that was rebuilding a laptop that got left on the roof of a car that was then driven off under that warranty and fell to the ground. You can imagine how many parts that one was in.

 

Good Luck

Roger

 

They are a bit pricier than consumer models, however having used both, Thinkpad :thumbsup:
