Cannot tell you how many broken Lenovos I have bought just to part out on Ebay recently. Based on my own experience owning one I can tell you that the touchpads are frustratingly bad and the system boards love to fail early. Don't confuse these cheap models with the ThinkPad models IBM used to sell, they are waaay different in terms of quality and reliability. Now if they included a free square trade warranty MAYBE I'd consider one.
