I don't know if this is "equivalent" to what you
currently have, but I have
a Lenovo T-420...it's not "new" as per se, but I've had it for quite
time and it's not given me any problems. (Its been in service since F-16)
and I've had no problems with it. Plus parts for it are easily obtained
online and its built tough. Bear in mind this is the "i5" CPU. HTH
Thanks, what I currently have is a Vaio C2M/W
It has a Core 2 Duo processor, I think I'd be challenged to find
anything currently manufactured less powerful! Screen size and hard
drive space are about the only things from it I'd really compare to,
since screen size varies by intended use and some cheaper SSD fitted
laptops have quite limited hd.
