IBM used to have a laptop business, until they sold it to Chinese company Lenovo a while back. Since then, their product have continued to enjoy high reputation among customers and most models offer excellent value. “Lenovo’s G470 laptops are entry-level machines with a lot of features for the money. Your choice of 2nd generation Intel Core i3 or i5 processors are backed up by up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM and either 500GB or 750GB of storage. Select models can be had with a Blu-ray drive, while Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and a 6-cell battery are included on every system. You’ll also find HDMI output, four USB 2.0 ports, a 5-in-1 card reader, and 802.11n WiFi on every model.” And today you can have a Core i3, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD configuration for $499 after $300 in rebates.
