Not our experience!
The company I work for has been getting these T61's in since they came out and have repeated hardware problems. I had the mobo replaced on mine within 1 week of delivery and it still isn't running quite right (not to mention the case wasn't quite put back together properly). One of my staff has a new one and it refused to work from day one, again forcing a repair. There have been reports from other areas of similar issues and our desktop team have complained about them no end.
