LOL ... Go back and read my post clarifying what was meant by the term ... PS I worked for the PC Co back then and I will never bad mouth an Aptiva they did exactly what they were supposed to do and did it well. Beyond case design the internals were virtually identical to the "business class" PCs. The primary difference was support level and shipped OS options. I bet if I looked hard I could find a Scraptiva in my collection along with the logo my friend made for them. I will also point out that I am typing this on a Lenovo Thinkstation using an OLD model M keyboard. Old loyalties die hard.Geez, that was the ONE LINE that IBM/Lenovo had to make to compete with the other crappy 'home' computers out there. I wouldn't judge the book by that paper cover.
I have one Lenovo that was on 24x7 as a server at a hotel for 10 years and that has now seen another 10 years of duty after being rotting in a utility chase for at least 5 years. And the workstation Lenovo for that hotel that was connected to that same server is also still going strong today. Lenovo's normal/business line is just as good as Dell/HPs except they were a little faster on the same specs or at least felt faster.
