Looking for comparative feedback and thoughts regarding whether to get a Lenovo T420 or Dell Latitude E6420. Both have similar specs and are priced similarly.

Basic setup: i5 processor, 4-6 GB ram, nvidia gpu, 500 Gb hd, dvd rw, wireless, bluetooth.

Your thoughts?

Clevo 150HM or 151HM ....

if ya gonna say ya never heard of Clevo, I bet ya never heard of the company that makes the laptops for Dell and Lenovo either.

The vast majority of laptops on the market are manufactured by a small handful of Original Design Manufacturers (ODM). Major relationships include:

Clevo sells the same designs to dozens of "re-branders" including Sager, XoticPC, Eurocom, RJtech, RKC notebooks, Pro-Star, PowerNotebooks, Origin PC, AVAdirect, V3 Gaming PC, Falcon Northwest, CyberPower, iBuyPower, System 76, PC Torque, Puget systems, Vigor Gaming, M-Tech, XTreme Notebooks, Smooth-Creations, MALIBAL, Widow PC, Hypersonic PC systems, Micro Express Computers, Jinco Computers, DevilTech, ChiliGreen, and many many more.
MSI follow similar re-branding practices to Clevo, although on a lesser scale, and also preserve their own MSI brand. Lotus is one MSI re-brander.
Quanta sells to (among others) HP/Compaq, Dell, Toshiba, Sony, Fujitsu, Acer, NEC, Gateway and Lenovo/IBM .
Compal sells to Toshiba, HP/Compaq, Acer, and Dell.
Positivo Informatica sells to Samsung, Sony, Siragon, Toshiba, HP
Wistron (former manufacturing & design division of Acer) sells to HP/Compaq, Dell, IBM, NEC, Acer, and Lenovo/IBM.
Flextronics (former Arima Computer Corporation notebook division) sells to HP/Compaq, NEC, and Dell.

Thanks Jack. Actually have heard of Clevo. Never thought to look at them directly. Chose Lenovo & Dell as they are advertised as business class systems and figured the build quality would be better.
