I've never had the opportunity to see a T-Series and Thinkpad Edge side-by-side. I use a T500 for work and love the build quality. How much is quality reduced for the Edge series?

I was waiting for the new T420/T520 to come out, but could be tempted by a Edge (or older T410/T510) if the price is right.

I just tried pricing a few budget yet quality 15.6" options, say 4GB RAM, camera, nothing too special, and I couldn't get under $600 without comprises... I'd say the current FS and Source deals are much warmer.

T420/T520 with Sandy Bridge processors should be out in a couple of weeks. http://www.lenovo.com/us/products/profe ... t520.shtml already has a preview. I'm thinking of selling my Macbook Pro and going back to Thinkpad... Hopefully RFD will have a nice coupon to help out. ;)

Didn't realize these were coming out so soon. It looks like they haven't done any physical design changes to the T4/510 series, but that they're refreshing the hardware, should be interesting to see how it turns out.

As for this coupon code, I just ordered a T510, and this one saved me about $30 compared to the visaperks.ca code. Plus I'm sure this supports rfd in some sort of way :)

The other 15" offers floating around right now are good values without question. For some people, the trade offs with those off shelf units like cheaper/plastic chassis, worse keyboards (and being stuck with bilingual by default), no Trackpoint, etc. make a difference.

True, I did pass up on the Acer at Futureshop after looking at it because it didn't look solid enough, even though I trust Acer units in general. Thanks Andrew

Make that thing happen Rehan. I'm also due to upgrading my m1330 (contemplating to get XPS17 till 4/4/2011). :)

They do occasionally, but they also price bump to compensate. I find these "special deals" are at most 3-4% better than the ongoing deals.

T420 and T520 are now available on the site, but the coupon isn't working for it. :( Looks like there might be some pricing errors there too.

AndrewRFD -- any chance you could confirm with Lenovo whether the coupon should work on these models?

Holy... that's unexpected.

Don't be surprised if it's not intentional though.
I was a little premature... hadn't actually tried the coupon, although I did see them listed after I clicked the RFD link above. :o I edited my last post after that.

The possible pricing error I was referring to was 5 years of ThinkPlus warranty for $99! That itself might make it a hot deal even without the coupon. :D

Still on the fence. How long do the coupon codes usually last? 1-2 weeks?
