I can't stop buying thinkpads.

Corporate square reporting.
Currently using a t440 thinkpad that office had given me for a year; always wanted a thinkpad before my company gave me one.
All I can say is it's a terribly dependent machine. Not sluggish at all despite running it with usually 6 spreadsheets open and multiple applications. It doesn't crash nor does it blue screen, and it's really really solidly built.
Cons really are it's purposely built to be a business machine; so the screen, sound, and overall "entertainment " value of the thinkpad is almost nil.
I've used dells and a vaio prior to this lappy and all I can say is thinkpad is the best laptop I've tried to date working and productivity wise.
Apple MacBook Pros rock for me.

>Middle of the road specs
thinkpad x61t is a decent Wacom Cintiq Companion alternative, if you're into art, that is.
otherwise, a regular old x201 would do just about everything a regular adult would do, at the cost of the ability to vidya, which doesn't mean much.
These are business and work machines, not fucking toys
Do people still need heavy duty machines to do their work these days? Apart from CAD, engineering, science, creative.
Thought everyone was using slick Thinbooks, you know, goes with the Starbucks posing crowd
Probably the last authentic sturdy looking Thinkpad is the W530. It is the last Thinkpad with lid lock and the keyboard light with the authentic style keyboard and the wireless, HDD led indicators.
The W530 was also the last W series laptop to support the easy to ejectUltraBaymodular system. Newer models would come to be incompatible with older UltraBay hardware, and would require the use of a screw driver, resulting in the exposure of sensitive electronics when swapping UltraBay modules, thus diminishing the "hot swap" flexibility of the design considerably.
Macbook is more like this
The reason people like the Thinkpads is because they are built like tanks.
Anyone here still love+using vintage tech in the face of their peers?
Meanwhile, on the International Space Station...
