I bought this laptop because of the ThinkPad brand is known for its build quality. A friend's HP laptop was starting to fall apart only after 2 years of use and that definitely contributed to my buying decision. Another friend was recommending the Sony Vaio but that was too rich for my budget, however this Lenovo SL410 isn't too expensive.
