We use Lenovo with an internal wireless card  used with net motion; they work well. At the price we paid we can replace several before we reach the cost of a true ruggedized unit.

Subject: [gis_info] GIS computer question/recommendation

I'm hoping someone out there might have some insight on a recommendation for a new GIS laptop. Generally looking for something with some kick, but I'm not running GIS processes that are going to be setting any records. I'm considering a Dell Latitude e6530 and the Lenovo ThinkPad W530.  I've had a trusted tech friend suggest leaning away from Lenovo but two GIS colleagues strongly recommending them.  Is there a consensus out there on Lenovo as being solid or best to avoid?  Thanks for any input- folks can just respond to me and I'll send out a single email with any feedback if there's consensus.
