Educational Models?

2008-07-25, 13:00 PM

Hi,

 

I've been going through tabook.pdf looking for T- or R61 14inch wide models, and it seems most are labeled as "Educational".

What does that mean? How does it reflect on their warranty status?

 

 

Looking for a Lenovo notebook is VERY complicated...
Solved! See the solution

Anyone? <(

 

Is this a delicate topic or something? The wrong board maybe?

I don;t think it is a delicate subject. I don't know the answer or I would tell you. I don't think you are being ignored. Just the person in the know has not seen your thread yet.

Probably it's just that no one who read the question knew the answer.

 

Looking at tabook, it doesn't look like there's any difference in the warranty.  Some of them do come with different pre-loads that include educational software.

I don't have an answer regading the term "educational" (yes, I've seen it on older machines and no I have no clue what it's about) but my advice would be along these lines:

 

a) If you're intent on purchasing a new ThinkPad, the warranty can always be extended/upgraded at the time of purchase, or even later. I'm fairly cartain that Israel can't be far behind U.S. offerings when it comes to these issues.

 

b) If the target is a used machine, buy one with some warranty and extend it.

 

As with anything else, just make sure that the ThinkPad you're buying is the right one for you.

 

My $0.02 only.... 

Cheers,

George

Education refers to the market that the product was designed to.  These systems typically have different configurations specific for that market.  For example here in the US an education model typically includes a firewire port.  There is absolutely no difference in warranty or preload.

I would recommend Lenovo to launch unexpensive laptop for educational purposes in order to help poor student for leanring.
