Rumor is that we are fixing to make a switch also. Don't know for sure, but there are a small test group getting ready to start. I think :)

Are you saying we're getting new laptops? lol

Have been with Thinkpads for 2 years and would not go back to any other brand. Lenovo appears to be keeping the brand in good shape.

I've also had a couple of recent bad experiences with Dell and appreciate the timing and detail of your post.
Other than Tom's channel, do you know of sources with non-profit pricing? Thanks!

Nick - I'd suggest shopping Lenovo gear through places like CDW.com and Insight.com and IBM/Lenovo itself. Typically a large vendor like Lenovo will not have a non-profit channel so it's left to the buyer to find the best deal through resellers.

Hasn't apple done the hard drive accelerometer and one button updates for awhile? ;-)

I don't know about Apple, but IBM has been using laptop accelerometers since 2003.

When I came to my current job as a consultant, I discovered they the company was an authorized IBM reseller. After using Dell for several years, I am now an IBM man with no regrets. I love the one button software updates especially (I don't know of anyone else that has that functionality). If you are looking for non-profit software/hardware, try this site: http://www.1computerbargains.com. They deal with churches and non-profits. Awesome prices!
