Are Thinkpads really the most reliable laptops, then?
From what I've learned of other people's experiences with Dell, they're not much better.
All of this makes me ask the question: Is a Thinkpad the best choice for a Windows laptop if you're willing to pay a little extra up front to not have to deal with hardware issues later on? Neglecting all other factors (specs, looks, etc), are Thinkpads the best laptops out there?

The bottom line is you can be very comfortable buying a Lenovo laptop. You can expect a sturdy, long lasting laptop and excellent customer service.
I think Thinkpads are certainly a very good choice for a Windows Laptop. Concerning the hardware issues with certain machines like you mentioned, sometimes I can't help but blame Windows.
I need a decent dedicated GPU in the laptop and an i5 to make me content. But I'd really rather pay a couple hundred bucks more now if I have to and get a solid machine than have to keep sending my laptop for repairs over the years. I don't like changing laptops too quickly and I plan on keeping whatever I buy at least three years or more.
Simlarly, Lenovo make lots of different models of thinkpad some of them are rubbish and quite a few are good. but it does not mean the other manufacturers make products that are inferior. It reall depend on what you want to use it for and what features you are after.
I only want to know in terms of stability and reliability of hardware. In terms of specs, the W520 is appealing to me. I'd be happy with that machine.
That being the case, I'm currently using a Bootcamp Mac Book Pro so go figure.
