thinkpad old vs new.jpg
803 KB, 2500x1301
So now that ThinkPads are officially dead, what laptops are the ThinkPads of the future? EliteBooks? Precisions?

Yes, older ThinkPads are still good, but in five years your trusty T-series or X-series from before 2011 will be only good for basic tasks, not for full-time computing. The current ThinkPads being released won't even last five years, let alone 10+ years like the old ThinkPads that refuse to die. In the past couple years, Lenovo has made a firm decision to make ThinkPads into a purely consumer brand, not the business-class brand of yore.

This thread isn't for shilling ThinkPads. It's for shilling alternatives.

Why I still use my x41 for web and never find is slow? setup is everything - I fully expect an x230 to be usable in 5-10yrs... how fast do you need your porn? Its not like you will be designing the next apollo rocket with it... you will still just be shitposting on 4chan....

I was talking about the new ones currently being released.

Your X230 will probably end up becoming a web browsing computer in 10 years, and you will be looking for a replacement for actual computing tasks. Don't forget that the X41 was also a top-tier machine when it was released, just like the X230 is now.

What I find really annoying is that now almost all notebook are 16:9.

Even business notebooks. 16:9 is just bad for everything but media. I want at least 16:10. I find 3:2 and 4:3 the best. But no notebook has these. Only the Macbook Pro has a 16:10 screen but I don't like it otherwise. So my only option is using an old notebook like the X201. It's fine but I would prefer a higher res screen and more modern hardware.

Yep, I was sad when my old T30 died. Now I have T61p with 16:10 and it still feels wrong after a couple years of daily use. Can't even imagine the horror of 16:9. If it really comes down to it, I'll get old Thinkpad and run in text mode or framebuffer console.
