Just a reminder that Lenovo bought the IBM Laptop/Desktop portfolio, along with their engineers. This doesn't necessarily guarantee ongoing quality but does give it a good starting pedigree.

I've had a couple of Lenovos, one very cheap one (don't bother) and one Thinkpad. The quality of the charger was good on both, no noticeable RFI. The quality of the charger is likely the most important part when buying a laptop for DX-ing. This is a while ago though.
Dell is good (I'm writing this on a new Latitude), but is it better than the Lenovo you pointed at? Impossible to say.
