Been thinking about getting a thinkpad instead of building a new pc to replace my old one and using those for my 3 drives would be nice, actually I need only two slots, one HD I can fill with data and store it safely. Are there any drawbacks on these things?

no. i have T420 that is literally always by my side. i recommend getting something with 1920x1080 at least however. it is the most comfy experience for shitposting, browsing, music, video, reading ebooks, saving imgs, retro gaming, reading manga etc. cost me 100 bucks plus 500g ssd and two 4 gig ram sticks. (another 100 bucks) i use it more than my HTPC workstation that is completely decked out. hell i barely even use it anymore unless i am editing video, doing heavy DAW work. fuck modern video games anyway.

Is it fair to say that thinkpads are the Lada Nivas of laptops?

I recently purchased a i7-3820QM and a caddy for my T530. When I get my paycheck next week I'll buying another stick of RAM.

I'm still considering installing Linux, I've used windows for so long that I'm a little hesitant to make the switch.

Anyone know a good stand/arm to replicate that space station battlestation look? I'm using x220's and so far it has been far easier to hoard laptops for this project than it has been to find suitable reasonably priced arms for this

Previous thread: >>66698901
If you're looking for purchase advice, state your budget and requirements (e.g. size and performance).
Don't buy anything OTHER THAN IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad T, X, and W/P Series if you want the Real Business Experience™

>Other business laptops are welcome in /tpg/ (Dell Latitude/Precision, HP EliteBook/ZBook).

Libreboot-compatible models:
>T60 (check lcd), X60(s/t); X200(s/t. -s requires soldering), T400(s)/500; W500.

Modern models:
>X220/X230 - 12", 768p, cheap and light
>T420/T430 - 14", 900p, widely available, socketed CPU, both Coreboot-compatible (Ivy Bridge CPU support on T420); Quad Core Compatible, Old keyboard swap on *30 series
>T520/530; W520/530 - 15", 1080p, DTR, 32GB RAM on quadcore models, USB 3.0
>T440p/540p; W540/1 - Last Thinkpads with socketed processors, easily replaceable trackpad (W541 doesn't need trackpad replacement)
>P-Series - 15'' + 17'', 4K display, up to 64GB of RAM, Xeon CPU option. Expensive.

Why ThinkPad?
>Used machines are plentiful and cheap
>Excellent keyboards - tactile feel and quiet
>Great durability: magnesium rollcage for structural integrity, with high quality plastic body panels
>Utilitarian design: e.g. indicator LEDs, 7 row keyboard layout on older models
>Docking stations that easily turns your laptop into a desktop
>Easy to repair (most models), upgrade & maintain thanks to readily available service manuals for every model, spare parts easy & cheap to obtain
>The best TrackPoint™, great for those who type a lot or hate swiping their fingers all over a touchpad
>Excellent GNU/Linux & *BSD support

>people keep posting this even though the bottom "ThinkPad" is an E-series and not comparable to X, T, W, or P-series.
