What's the difference between Lenovo and IBM Thinkpads and which do you prefer?
>warranty honored by IBM
>he thinks this means IBM engineers will personally fix your chinkpads
IBM: old as fuck, nice keyboard and design
Lenovo: Newer, with utter shit keyboards
If you get an IBM good luck doing anything with it except looking at wikipedia
IBM pays contractors to drive to your house and replace parts on your ThinkPads.
Or if it's something retardedly easy, like a keyboard replacement, they'll just give you the part and let you to fix it yourself.
That's a Snap-On tier warranty right there.
IBM thinkpads stopped being manufactured around 2004.
The latest model, T43, uses a Pentium M, is a souped up Pentium 3, meaning it lacks cpu features like nx bit, pae, and sse2.
You can't run modern operating systems on them and the only purpose to keep using them is to flaunt your autistic hipster pride.
T4x models also had a nagging design flaw in where the motherboard could be snapped in half if you lifted the computer from the front with 1 hand.
Agreed, have to recommend Dell Latitudes over Thinkpads nowadays
>Bundles vanilla Windows instead of the bloated monstrocity Lenovo ships
>Doesn't give users malware
>Actually have good solid keyboards and hardware, very easy to customize, lots of parts, batteries etc available for every model
I have a 5 year old e6410 that takes a LOT of abuse every day but still works great. I can probably milk another few years of life out of it too.
If you include the Lenovo-manufactured ThinkPads that still have the IBM logo and design, then maxing out the CPU and RAM and adding an SSD is enough to make a decent laptop for general productivity stuff. My X60 can run Eclipse, Firefox, and LibreOffice at the same time, which is more than most people need. Anyone here should have a desktop to do the heavy lifting anyway.
i think the real question is how komari still fits into her fifth grade swimsuit
Maybe the tiny minority of Thinkpad users who are from /g/ and are CS Majors/NEETs? Everyone else uses Windows because it runs the things that Thinkpads were made for (Office, stock trading software etc). Retard.
>overly optimistic cartoons for adults
How is it that retarded normies like you can comprehend idea of different genres in music or movie industry, yet fail to apply this same idea to anything else.
Norms HATE it when you enjoy something that doesn't involve blowing all of their money getting black out drunk and being forever in debt or being cucked by their whore gf. So they have to call you a loser so they don't have to think about their own shortcomings
They are wrong though. And I don't mean chinese cartoons, western catroons aren't always for kids either.
It's like assuming every single song is either pop, rap or dubstep because that's what you mostly hear in TV. It's called ignorance and nothing to be proud of.
>It's called ignorance and nothing to be proud of.
Society proves you wrong.
Most people are proud of being computer illiterate, or math illiterate, or even literate illiterate, because "at least i'm not a nerd, LOL!".
I'm not joking, people really do act this way.
In my high school classes, it was completely normal to have trouble reading passages out loud if the word was longer than 6 characters in length.
Those are the 66% of your high school peers who will never get a degree, and be stuck making at or below median income. Unless they're female, in which case they can just marry someone with their shit together.
These are not people to model your life after.
>T4x models also had a nagging design flaw in where the motherboard could be snapped in half if you lifted the computer from the front with 1 hand.
daily drove T4s for a long time and this literally never happened
likewise they aren't totally useless unless your only usage of a computer is mindlessly sucking e-celeb cock on youtube or playing gaymes, in which case you shouldn't be here anyway
And my point is that the culture you're describing is largely composed of barely-functional people who are by and large uninteresting and, in any case, have almost no overlap with this Tibetan throat-singing message board.
No, I don't post anime outside anime boards.
I'm just saying that it's a bit pointless to discourage people from pursuing their interests on a message board dedicated to people pursuing their interests.
I am also easily baited and a bit slow due to recovering from a blackout-drunk party over the weekend.
>i don't post anime on an anime imageboard
well that's dumb
>I am also easily baited and a bit slow due to recovering from a blackout-drunk party over the weekend.
I find most anime fans autistic, but the crossover between /g/ and anime creates the kind of autism I not only tolerate but truly and deeply connect with on at fundamental human level.
Don't take that from me.
That's why you need the IBM logo. You can out-hipster the hipsters, and it's even rainbow colored.
It also lets other /g/ folks recognize your elite meme mastery so you can both awkwardly avoid eye contact while sipping your cappuccinos.
>You can out-hipster the hipsters, and it's even rainbow colored.
Nobody is even hipstery enough to be impressed by that, they are all basic bitches in uggs, yoga pants, scarves with that weird shitty light material, pony tails, and with macbooks.
Non-non-biyori ... I think. It's been a while.
