And this is the problem with individual anecdotal evidence. For every horror story you can find, you can also find a wonderful success story -- although Kelly has no actuall experience with the Drew Laptop, so her evidence is a little hearsay.
Drew is dealing with a pretty good company, and the thinkpads are usually a very solid product. I usually have a hard time finding someone that is not happy with their thinkpad, and when they are unhappy, it is because they aren't that great with computers to begin with.
