How the fuck are you supposed to hold it without accidently pressing the edge?
Pic related is fucking cringe, they expect us fingertip holding the thing and drop it on the first day?
>they dont expect us to drop it
Based on design. Which one looks better?
I feel BTFO once more, tricked into a Xiaomi by /g/, into NEEThood by /r9k/ and into bitcoin by /biz/ and fucking men thanks to /fit/
Iphone X BTFO competition. Its 2 years ahead of its time. Galaxy s8 is horseshit now
ITT: alternatives to the Iphone X "future"
Now that Protonmail is banning accounts for violating their "rules", isn't encrypting emails and sucks, what are some better alternatives?

$999. Gotta say, I'm somewhat surprised. I thought they would have the balls to ask for $1500.

I would make the switch to linux but I dont want to lose 90% of my vidya library.
I'm gonna be stuck on my 2500k for ever I guess.
When will you grow out of your teenage contrarian phase and admit that chrome is the best browser?
Do you steal from work?
I time all my bowel movements during company time and I also jerk off in there sometimes.
I also automate things I was being paid to do by hand and and purposely don't rewrite our build scripts so they stay super slow and I can watch an episode of anime between complete rebuilds.

Completely Official /tpg/ T440p buyer's guide
CPU - i3 dual, i5 dual, i7 dual, i7 quad. Middle is pointless, latter is marked with MQ. I've never seen an i3. Easy to swap. Most commmon ones - i5 4200m, i5 4300m, i7 4700mq. Best upgrade is either a 4712mq for equivalent wattage to the dual cores or 4710/4810/4910 for higher clocks, depending on which one you can find for cheap. Only big difference between those is clocks, 4700/4800/4900 work fine as well. Note - haven't actually seen proof of a 4712 working, it's not on the official compatibility list but it should work.
RAM - PC3-12800 1600MHZ DDR3, two slots, both swappable. 16GB max, pretty sure that's a Haswell limit.
Storage - one internal SATA 2.5 bay, one internal M.2 2242 SSD slot, optional one 2.5 drive in the DVD """"UltraBay"""" drive bay. It might not be clear where the drives in the one you're buying are, ask if you want to know.
Screen - 766p/900p TN, 1080p IPS. 1080 swap is cheap, not a big deal. B140HAN01.1, .2 or .3 are recommended. IIRC it's matte/glossy/semi-matte in that order.
Battery - 6cell or 9cell, later has a rear bulge. Worth it.
Trackpad - if you want the classic style, swap it for the T450 one. Just remove the backplate (2 screws), the palmrest (7 or 8 screws) and replace the touchpad (4 screws) which is a component of the palmrest. Reassemble and done.
Keyboard - modern Lenovo chiclet, can't be swapped unlike xx30 series. By chiclet standards it's pretty damn good though.
GPU - GT730M. Pretty much pointless, I'd avoid it. Can't be swapped without swapping the motherboard.
Extra - GPU model has a different heatsink, it keeps it a tiiiiiny bit cooler. Few degrees, but if you're right on the edge of throttling after a quad core swap it might be worth a shot.
