As many of you know, I started using Lenovo as a vendor of choice for both desktops and laptops earlier in 2012. There are several reasons for this change. One is because I think the design and build of Lenovo’s products is compatible or better than other computer manufacturers. Now, most people use (and some even like) Dell, and I am a Registered Dell Partner. Nevertheless, I have always believed in offering an option for my price-conscious clients, and Lenovo frequently beats Dell’s pricing.
Granted, Dell offers a wider array of customization options, but then you have to wait for the factory to build it for you. Lenovo, on the other hand, has determined a decent core set of options that appeal to a wide segment of my client base. There has been, so far, very little need to alter the basic hardware configurations. I discovered long ago that most of you keep your computers far longer than their normal life spans. I find it comforting to know that Lenovo computers will let me upgrade the memory one or two times to keep it performing like a newer computer.
So what is the headache? Well, that came during installation.
