Nice one. Enjoy. I am a serial Thinkpad user... my advice was hardly going to be free of biasUpdate for those who care: ended up with going with neither
I found a newer thinkpad, t14, it's an i5 but 10th gen so it should be a lil faster than the t490
Scored it for even less than either of the other two so I'm happy with that too
I think you made a good choice. They have served me well.
I had to look up the T14... I was unfamiliar with the line. The standard 14" ThinkPad line has been the T4xx. It has incremented by 10 every year for the past decade. Once you get to T490... where do you go? I suspect the T14 is the 4xx series but they've been forced to update the naming system . I could be wrong.
I wont say whether to buy a Lenovo or not. I have enjoyed them but I'll let you judge your own needs. If you do decide to buy one, they run sales often. If your purchase is not urgent, watch their site and you may be able to score a good discount. The have big sales occasionally (e.g. Black Friday, end of financial year, etc...) and smaller ones frequently. The sales are a bit ridiculous... to the extent that you might be led to believe those are the 'normal' prices and the non-discounted prices are 'special' markups. @inferno 's comment about getting the previous year's model is on point.Heard good things about Levano, is it worth more shopping?
