I've been tasked with replacing my sister's laptop, but she has zero respect for technology and quickly breaks everything she touches. Here's a laundry list of things she's done to the last machine, that was not even a year old:

*Paint on the screen
*Melted case from hair iron
*Bent CD tray
*Several Jammed Keys
*Several Missing Keys
*Caved in USB port
*Can't close properly
*Shattered hinge
*Gum(?) in fan vents
*Only turns on if slammed against the ground (for the last six months)

The point is I need to find something that's hardy enough to survive her disrespect, and cheap enough to not cry over when it doesn't anyways. Are there any laptops known for being impossible to ruin physically that are destitute tier? It doesn't need to be a good machine at all, it just needs to survive.

It's cheaper to train your sister into functional human being.

Panasonic toughbook maybe? Still not going to be paint-proof, though, and if you stick gum in the vents it does get stuck there, but at least it can take a bit more roughing than your average laptop.

Get her a ruggedized laptop. Even Thinkpads wouldn't hold such beating.

Is she retarded?

No just hideously spoiled

buy a used toughbook from ebay

Maybe you should teach your sister to take care of here shit.

Dude, get her a panasonic tough book off eBay and let her beat the holy hell out of the thing for a few years.

what the fuck

Obviously they aren't old enough to own anything that isn't purely made of dense plastic. Here you go.
>>
you could try a x131e, windows or chromebook version, they have a rubber ring around them, keys that you can't pull out, the pointing nipple will be dead in a week but other than that it should hold out, they're like $300
>>
>>45369883
Look for mil-spec laptops or other hardened laptops like >>45369985.
Since you mentioned that she's spoiled, money shouldn't be problem so you can probably even have someone paint it in pastel pink or some shit. I think an iron would still damage them if it was placed on an open laptop but I could be wrong. You could also just buy a stack of shitty chromebooks or some cheap chinese garbage with a volume discount and give her a new one every month or two or something like that.
>>
I am being completely serious, maybe a mac would be good for her because if she actually likes the computer instead of seeing it as a tool she might handle it with more care.

Other than that a t420 maybe. They are though as fuck and pretty cheap.
>>
>>45370297
Well, is she damaging it because she wants mac? (I'm not sure if you're too autistic to tell or not.) If so just get her one if that's what you want to do.

Like some posters above said, consider getting her a ruggerized laptop.
I've been a happy owner of Panasonic CF-29 and so far I haven't had any issues at all with it. It fell down a few times, I've used in rain and in -20 Celsius, nothing bad ever happened.

how about you beat her for being a little shit

Tough book.

Don't keep getting her things. Let her learn a fucking lesson instead of enabling her just because she's female.

Abduct her and make her the first victim of your rape dungeon.
Females like her should breathe to serve only one purpose.

Makes no sense. Given opees stories are true she will break it aswell.

Go to your local junkyard and look for something that looks like a computer. Nick it and give it to her.

She put fucking gum in the vents! Unless this thing has none she's probably going to do the same which can very well overload the processor.

>>45370089
I agree with this post. She's obviously either under the age 10 or a complete fucking down syndrome infested wreck.

Can I use it to call in a kill-streak?

>>45369883
Instead of trying to get one really solid laptop, get a stack of super cheap pieces of shit from alibaba or craigslist, then every time she breaks one just pull a new one off the pile.

get one of them mil laptops and paint it pink.

Do laptops not fare well in low temperatures?
I often use my chinkpad in about 5-10C, sometimes going back and forth between places that are 5-20C, would this transitioning worsen mtbf?

Tsundere case, anon.
Trust me, I'm an expert.

>Do laptops not fare well in low temperatures?
laptops are fine, HDDs aren't.
Pretty sure there are (or were) panasonic toughbooks with a heating device that was meant to heat up the HDD before starting it in cold.
>>
>>45371780
Oh, I have an SSD, I should be fine then?
I thought maybe there was something to do with condensation or repeated temperature change wearing out the CPU.
>>
>>45371824
>or repeated temperature change wearing out the CPU.
repeated temperature change happens everytime you turn on, use and turn off your computer.

>Oh, I have an SSD, I should be fine then?
you should be fine SSDs don't have any moving parts and considering reliability of them even if it caused some wear your SSD is probably going to be dead before temperature does any damage to it.
>>
>>45371610
My iPod's screen broke one winter in the cold. Dunno if it was bad luck or the cold. I didn't bump into anything, but it was in the pocket of my jacket, away from my body warmth.
>>
The really funny thing is she will get a (very expensive) Toughbook or equivalent and she will complain about it being ugly.

Why your parents will pay for this device is anyone's guess, I bet even they don't know why they're doing it.

Get her an iPad 2 off Ebay.
>>
>>45369883
Toughbook
>>
Thinkpad X131 series.
They are underpowered laptops built for school children.
