Yes, it will be as reliable as the Toshiba .. until it breaks

If you're worried about breakage, buy a (business) model that has a three year warranty on it. But then, that machine'll probably cost a little more, too.

If you have an IT geek wifey who used to work for IBM, you shouldn't have much to worry about. If she can't fix it (if it breaks), she probably knows a few people who can.

If you want to figure out why your computer doesn't work, take a look in the mirror. Mine works just fine, and always did. Computers aren't stupid, but people are.

"My 10 year old Dell w/ windows XP works just fine, I don't know why everyone bags on them so much."

Because most people ain't got the sense God gave an ant. That's how Macs get bought.
I guess I'm just a dumb ol' throttle twister and button pusher then.

This whole dudes-wearing-kilts-outside-of-Scotland thing has totally killed my plaid-skirt fetish.

Good.



besides kilts are NEVER plaid. They are either a solid colour or Tartan.

I bought the Lenovo U330 Ideapad. The keyboard is very similar in feel and alignment to the Toshiba so I hope my spelling errors are only caused by my stupidity and not the placement of the keys.
It's loaded with the XP Pro. I have the ability to update to 7 Pro, but something is telling me to wait a minute for that. Anyone play with 7 Pro, yet?

Most that I've polled say they like it - but I'd still keep the safety on, were I you. XP Pro is stable and compatible with about 99.975% of the Windows-based programs out there, and I haven't yet heard anything about the DRM-crap (which was my biggest gripe with Vista).
