I have a Lifebook T902 through school, and it's a piece of junk. Build quality is poor, with my biggest complaint being cheap plastic used throughout. If it falls at all, it's going to break, period. My school uses a lease program and will replace damaged machines as opposed to repair them. I am currently on my fourth machine in two years after a laundry list of issues, from a bad hard drive to a faulty motherboard to bad speakers to a broken chassis. To put this in perspective, I have squeezed four years out of my Dell Latitude E6410, still running, and only replaced the DVD drive and battery.

That said, I have used one of their traditional, that is non-tablet, notebooks, and it was all around a better machine. I don't remember the model of this particular machine, but that was about a year and a half ago. All the issues I have had with their tablet machines are the same as I had with the similar Gateway convertible I had before it.

I do not know if they are any good after separating from Siemens in 2009.
My 2007 Fujitsu N6400 series laptop was the best I ever owned. 6 years of blissful perfection! It has actually lasted 7+ years, but in the 7th year I needed to change out the fan since that was periodically starting to grind. It was one of the last XP machines from the start. BLISS.
HPs have been crap.
The Lenovo is a little scary, maybe its Windows 7 is the issue but sometimes it just doesn't recognize an inserted SD card or USB item. Also SLOW, Long boot, long waits loading software.

What blew me away from the start with the old Fujitsu was its silence. The Lenovo is similar. I suspect the less it needs its fan the better for longevity.

The same web designer who recommended Fujitsu in 2007 now says Asus is top brand.
