They can be acquired for $200 or less on eBay and make good Linux laptops

Buyers remorse and the need to belong to a community.

Thinkpads are the MLP of laptops

No, they're the dragon dildos of laptops.
Big, heavy, easy to clean and the fit nicely up your ass.

Because they have nothing else.

Although I don't use Linux as a desktop. My laptop is a 13" MBP that I have been using for three years now without any problems. I think I will use it for two more years before getting a new one. Prior to that I had a white unibody macbook that worked fine for two years until I destroyed it by spilling tea all over it. My colleague sitting next to me is using a MBP from 2008. That's 6 years and counting, only expenses were getting a new charger and some rubber pads off ebay

Why cant you just pull your dick like everybody else?

Your anus wasnt designed to eat huge reptile cocks. You're not going to be able to keep your own shit in if you keep this up. Just pull your dick so you dont have to wear diapers as a 40 year old.

They're fucking durable. I used to work in secret service and at one time i blocked a gun shot to the president head with a thinkpad. Too bad the president still got shot at the end. The second gunman shot him from opposite direction.

That night, i typed my report and my resignation letter with the same thinkpad. The only thing broken in that laptop was the hdd bay door. The rest of the laptop worked flawlessly.

i was muh thinkperds only for a while, but i made bank off doge and btc and the macbook is a quality machine. i have 3 PC desktops, 2 pc laptops, and the macbook. linux, mac, win, all have their strengths. being a fanboy accomplishes nothing
>>
>>45445812
yeah because hauling around a 20lbs thinkpad is much more convenient. top kek

what's your counter argument in this case? it's reliable. if I spread the price I paid for it over the span of it's life time it's just around 200€ a year, probably the same price you all pay for your deadbeat thinkpads

Because it was cheaper than the equivalent I could get.

Also, god-tier keyboard and durability.

if I want a laptop for movies and word processing for as cheap as possible is a linux booted thinkpad genuinely my best option?

Haven't owned a laptop in five years tbh and I'm kinda lost.
>>
>>45447771
Yeah, probably.

It's kinda weird to see how well my t61p performs in comparision to newer laptops.

- long battery life

- good value (unfortunately, the demand from neckbreads inflates used market prices)
- easy to maintain or upgrade

They are genetically inferior. They suffer from mental ailments.

Anyone see the new thinkpad w series work station that was just announced? Are you hyped yet /g/?

worth it for the price? i need just a cheap small notebook to carry around im open for suggestions
>>
>>45445793
I also have a 13" Macbook pro that I only use for editing photos, I'll never buy another because it's more than enough to run anything I need as is.

I also have two thinkpads that I take around town with me (not usuallly at the same time) that are also more than enough to do everything I need and are very durable and have good battery life, I estimate my computer usage is about 70% thinkpad and 10% mac, with my phone being the last 20%
>>
I liek muh 'Pads because they are durable, easy to build from organ donors, easy to upgrade, have excellent Linux support, have hard drives which are exceptionally easy to swap, have Ultrabays for moar swappage, have well-designed docks, great keyboards, and in general are convenient as fuck.

I can scatter them everywhere to always have a PC at hand. I dock my main T61 and run external monitor/keyboard/mice while enjoying dat battery as builting "UPS" since power outages are common in my area. I have 'Pads in my shops, both houses, both trucks, and they don't cost squat because I build and sell other 'Pads. I have a faster Dell XPS and a desktop for AutoCAD but my X200 w SSD and 8GB also runs AutoCAD 2015 surprisingly well. (If you have a .edu email you can download it free from Autodesk.)

I can afford any notebook I want and not notice the expense, but 'Pads just work so that's what I use. I'm a conveniencefag.
>>
Thinking of getting a pad, but can anyone tell me the real difference between 20BLS00400 & 20BL000BUS besides the $30ish price difference? I plan on using linux & an SSD/ram upgrade if that matters.

They look the same. One is just a "mini" and the other is the normal. No idea what the real difference is.

Shit feels like 1 pound at most. Hit the gym bruh, or stop spouting shit out your ass even though you've never touched most thinkpads.
