You generally can't go wrong with a thinkpad. Depending on what you want to use it for, second hand ex corporate give a lot of bangs for your buck.

Yeah ive had a few thinkers in the past, I like them but these clevo laptops are using desktop cpu's, most of them are 6 cores @ 4.1, I actualy have a need for a machine like that.
The penguin z2 looks nice bit I wounder if its good quality

Thanx for the repplies guys, yeah I think ill get the penguin z2, I was looking into the system 76 gazelle, its the same computer as the penguin z2,
Except for the hardware.

The system 76 gazelle would cost me $869 and has a 4 core cpu,
even though it claimes to give the option for a 6 core cpu, it wont let me select it?! :roll:

The penguin z2 would cost me $1075 and comes with a 6 core desktop cpu, And whats even better, A TUX KEY!!! :mrgreen:

So I want the penguin z2!
