Lenovo thinkpad or ideapad for college?

Im going to be a college freshman this fall and Im deciding on what laptop i should get. i want something powerful and worth my money, so not a mac or dell. I am going to be a math-economics major so Im not sure if i should pick a laptop based on what Im going to study.

Right now Im leaning towards this:

I feel the Thinkpad is too much for the business man and the Ideapad will be more for a collegekid, but still be powerful and get the job done.

let me know. thanks.

From what I understand the thinkpad will be a hassle to update now, it’s really a matter of what you’re using it for. If you’re just typing assignments and watching youtube/hulu then you can go cheap because most anything on the market will do that just fine. But if you’re going to play any kind of games, image or video editing you might want to go big. Personally I use costco.com to look at laptops. You can customize an hp, return it in 90 days for a refund if you don’t like it and comes with a free 2 year warranty (yes you would have to ship it in for the warranty.) If you want a lenovo all you need is this, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834146556 Otherwise add some specs that you want and we can help more.
