Hey guys I am a Computer Science student and I am interesting in getting a Laptop mostly for school. I have been looking at ThinkPad’s and I wanted to get so advice. I have about $1000 to spend and I will only be using this for school. As of now I am mostly doing some C and C++ programming using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. I want something that is fast and reliable that will last through my whole degree program (about 2 more years). Thank you for your help.
No I do not plan to play any games on this laptop. I have a desktop at home that is fully capable of playing games (ie Crysis). But for now i do plan on running Win7 64bit. Linux is an option for the future but for now i am planning on Win7.
