  • I used to work for a major university that offered Dell and Lenovo laptops with four-year support packages to the students. Dell was more popular with the students, but a large number of Lenovo Thinkpads were purchased as well, many because we’d had the chance to speak to parents about their superior build quality. The Dell laptops had a higher number of hardware failures which very often meant replacing the entire motherboard or LCD display in order to repair. We saw our fair share of Thinkpads, but their problems were typically virus issues or other software issues caused by the students. The Thinkpads, most of them T-series with bracing that protected the internal components better than the Dells, held up against students who were less than careful. The majority of issues that were thought to be hardware were more often related to dust or other debris that was easily removed to restore performance. Thinkpads are rock solid and incredibly reliable machines that were wise investments for the parents, allowing them to focus on tuition and books without having to worry about buying a second laptop to get through school. It’s safe to say most of the Thinkpads survived all 4 years of college and past graduation. They were also a fantastic investment for the university as it cost less to support the warranties on Lenovos than on the Dells, not only with parts and repair, but also in time spent on speaking with their owners panicked over losing their assignments or other data. Offering Lenovo Thinkpads was one of the best IT decisions the university made!
