For those of you who are having significant issues with your W520 (sudden death, inability to wake from sleep, etc), please provide us with your date of purchase.
I would like to know if the series is improving in quality as time wears on. Are early adopters the ones with most problems? Is the production process improving at all? If so, Lenovo should offer to replace machines from earlier in the manufacturing process since there are obviously inherent, permanent problems.
As I said, please post your purchase date. I'm curious to see what becomes clear, if anything.

Purchase date may not be entirely accurate, as it depends on the way the purchase was made (e.g. purchased from a store stock room)
The system serial number sticker (bottom of the laptop) will have the year and month printed next to it.

Right on the money. See mine was actually manufactured on 11/07. Must have been in storage for some time I guess before I got it.
Ordered config 8GB RAM (1x4GB, 2x2GB), now (12GB, 2x4GB, 2x2GB).
