Sold my rMBP13 for an X1.

An rMBP with OS X "just werks" and was 90% of the laptop + OS that I wanted but the X1C5 with Arch is 99.9% perfect. However, you have to be willing to put in work to get everything working exactly the way you want.

I got the 1440p screen so my effective resolution is only 1280x720, which is slightly less than the effective 1280x800 of the rMBP. It's not a problem for me because I mostly use my laptop to write software so I spend all of my time in terminal emulators. 1080p might be better for the additional screen real estate but you may miss the "Retina" font rendering.

this is the 2000s MacBook, right? how does this hold up? I'm planning on buying the 2011 one.

my mom owns the Air. pretty nice. a little too thin, though; feels like I can drop it anytime.

>> No.62897475

Yes, 2009
64 bit processor but only upgradeable to 4Gb of memory in this model
HDD easily upgradeable to 512 SSD

How does it hold up? - Pretty fucking well, I can't see any reason to upgrade. This thing is a beast, i've used and abused it as far as loptops go (using it in the rain, dropping it onto hard tile floors etc (i'm a beast)) It's more or less unbreakable. If you can get a deal on it you can' really go wrong.

how does that happen?

I'm a little hesitant since the aluminum ones heat up like a bitch. I imagine the plastic MacBooks won't support newer OS's, though...

my friend's selling me his 2011 MBP for $70. worth a cop or should I look elsewhere?

>> No.62898649

For $70 it's not a bad deal. Just don't be surprised when you can't run something that's still supported. It might be worth dual-booting loonix or Windows on it.

As far as the MBPs are concerned, anything non-retina should be easy to change the thermal paste on. Using high-quality paste should help the heat issue, at least that's what I've seen.

I have the 2010 model with 8Gb ram and ssd. 2010 = intertial scrolling + sound output from the displayport unlike the 2009.

Also unlike the 2009 model the other anon has mine broke by a single drop of alcohol which sorted out the keyboard. I had to replace the entire bottom half of the laptop (motherboard and and screen transplant essentially).

Other than that i agree, it runs perfectly, 320M can play 60fps 1080p or regular 1440p youtube. Is pretty quick. Animations on the desktop are choppy sometimes. 7/10 its ok.

As someone who has owned both ThinkPads and Macbooks: DON'T. What the fuck are you thinking?

ThinkPads have objective terrible screens. They are audibly loud, and the battery life on them is just a meme. You MIGHT get 24 hours with a battery slice and 10% brightness with an SSD on an X230, but you sure as fuck aren't going to get that kind of life in normal usage.
