I've got half a dozen X201T's, X220T's and an X230T. I prefer the new keyboard. Feel is equal. I don't use the missing 7th row of keys.

I love the backlight on the X230T keyboard. I love having the "Delete" key isolated at upper right.

I converted from the X220T to the X230T in August, 2012. I've been a ThinkPad user since 1995.

Good to go!

All the major functions work too. Loving the keyboard already. Gonna take a while to force myself to use the nipple though.

What thinkpad should I get for programming? Was thinking of a T61, but doubt it'd be powerful enough

I want some advice on thinkpads. I've looked at the used guides and I feel they are lacking in actual advice. I know for certain I want an X series thinkpad.

I don't know which model.

I figured the x200 would work but it only has a core duo and I can't imagine that would perform well. Am I wrong? I plan to put an SSD in whatever I get.

Is the X201 or X220 worth the extra money?

All I want is something to work on for school and watch chinese cartoons and movies off a Flash Drive.

Also.

For example, would this be pretty good?
>>
Is there a way to change the cooler or the fan so It doesn't get that hot, My x201 gets around 45-52C while watching 1080p, and a few firefox tabs open, Is it the fan that suck or the layout or why is it so bad?
>>
>>45310707
I got my x201 for around $300 ish here in sweden It came with 8GB ram and i5, I put in a ssd and it just works wonderful!

>>45310585
It even has a digitizer, I think I'm going to buy one

Don't know much about it though

>>45310717
that's normal for a laptop

and pretty good as well

>>45308898
whats the thinkpad with the longest batt life?
>>
>>45310585
they are 12.5" laptops... 1366x768 really isn't that bad on them

I own one and regularly use a 27" 2560x1440 monitor. The screen size and resolution on my X220t really don't bother me at all.

Along with my opinion of the Yoga is that it's shit.
>ULV CPU's
>soldered RAM
>no docking port
>no DisplayPort
>small, nonswappable battery
>no trackpoint buttons
>no screen latch
>difficult to access hard drive
>dragging the most sensitive and important part of the laptop (the keyboard) on shit while in tablet mode

Yoga is dumb and retarded and has nothing in common with ThinkPads that /g/ approves of and likes.

I was wondering howcome my x61t get so much warmer.
>>
>>45310829

X220T. 20 hours with slice battery.
>>
>>45310883
non-tablet should be better

The X220t only has 3-cell and 6-cell option for the regular battery. The non-tablet can take a 9-cell.

And then the slice is the same, 6-cell for both.

i just want a laptop with 10+ hrs batt life
>>
What's the best option for extending battery life on the T420, currently with a 56Wh?

Does the 9 cell 94Wh stick out much / prevent the laptop being level?
>>
>>45310937

x220+9-Cell = 12 Hrs.
x220+9-Cell+SLICE = 20 Hrs.

It sticks out this much. It is flush on the bottom. It's also very sturdy you can pick up the laptop by it quite confidently.

>>45311009
Those are very generous numbers, maybe at idle and if you have the CPU undervolted and brightness down a bit.

I get about 6 hours from my X220t with 6-cell, which is still in good condition. With the slice I would expect to get about 12 hours.
>>

and yes of course, hours are taken at the modified battery saver setting.
>>
>>45311174
It's a 62Wh battery, with pretty much the exact same internals and specs. It is comparable.

Rule of thumb is that you can get about one hour per cell. Obviously varies with condition of the battery, what you're using it for, and what your power settings are...

But 12 or 20 hours of battery life is not realistic under usage at all.
>>
>>45311260
T430s almost best laptop ever here.

cons display

other wise love the fucker, get 10 hours bat life from it
>>
>>45311070

>they are 12.5" laptops... 1366x768 really isn't that bad on them

I don't know. The X-series is really tempting because of the great price/performance ratio. But after using a modern laptop with high ppi it's hard to go back. I always hated the pixelated look of low res screens and love how the new high ppi screens have almost the clarity of magazine. But I also have a limited budget. Sure I could afford it but with a X220T for example I would have a lot more money left so I wonder if I shouldn't just bear with it. It's a hard choice since I can't try any of the laptops out myself because no store I've been in has them. Only the consumer non-thinkpad models.
>>
>>45310844
For CPU intensive tasks, isn't a desktop better in both heat/performance ?
Is a screen latch really necessary ?
And what's wrong with the keyboard in tablet mode, it looks awesome
>>
what's a good price to buy a x61t. can't seem to find that thinkwiki pricing guide.
