I am curious on people's thoughts if business class laptops are worth it? I haven't owned a non business class laptop in a very long time. I currently own a thinkpad and will need to get a new laptop in the next year or so. I am debating whether to go with something that is not a business class laptop, but concerned if it will hold up. I have been impressed with the daily abuse my current laptop has taken and it still works.
My only issue with the business line is the tech support I paid a heavy sum for through Lenovo turned out to be garbage. It seemed like the only thing they would do is replace the hard drive, which was not the issue. Each time my computer came back screws were either loose, missing, or falling out of the machine. It took numerous returns and angry phone calls and emails to finally get the main issue solved (replacing the screen). Once it was solved I have not had any future issues (replacing the screen).
I use my laptop for everything work and non work related. I am constantly on the go with it, thus it needs to be used to those occasional bumps and bruises.
