I have the extended warranty which lasts until June of this year. I've had it since June of 2008 and let me point out how outstanding Lenovo's warranty is: they try to help you fix it and if they can't they will send you a UPS box and then have it back to you in less than 3 days. Okay, here are the good things: its fast, has a decent sized hard drive, and a nice graphics card. I can play starcraft 2 when I have time on the lowest settings SMOOTHLY. Keep in mind this is a 2008 computer! But one thing I have to mention is that 3rd party drivers are required to play on it. The Quadro cards are strange, in that sense. Finally, it has broken 3 times on me. Once, for a hard drive failure Another time because the keyboard's A button was broken (they just sent me a new keyboard) and once, because of a motherboard issue. Lenovo stands up to its history, and is extremely reliable.
