Mornin' guys and gals!
I've been writing with a mate who's advised me to get a Lenovo as my new work and gaming laptop.
My budget is 1400$ (7000 Kr. in Danish currency + Danish prices are slightly higher), and I've narrowed it down to two choices.

They are practically the same. Same pixels, although the Ideapad has a 17" inch screen and is slightly prettier than the Thinkpads IBM style model.
Just wondering if anyone has experience/knowledge of Lenovo, since I've researched and heard that they
are incredibly well made and reliable. My previous laptop was a HP pavilion dv7 which ended up glitching and being repaired 4 times in a year
So it's incredibly important that my next buy lasts long and doesn't mess up just by using WoW and Cubase 6.
But yeah, just wondering if the newer Ideapad G-series would keep cool and serve as well as the Thinkpad model? It costs slightly less, so might
aswell save a few pennies if so.
P.s It has to be a laptop I'm afraid. I'm a musician so PC mobility is a must.
Thanks for any feedback! And have an amazing day everyone
