Why are Thinkfa/g/s as bad as iFa/g/s?

You build a cult following around a piece of hardware that is not particularly exceptional in any way.

It's some useless status symbol that doesn't fucking matter or make any difference.

So, why keep shilling out for this piece of shit?

Never cared about thinkpads until I got one at work. Best laptop keyboard I ever typed on.
>>
>>47645739
Best laptop keyboard is basically the same as the least shit smelling turd.
>>
>>47645759
have you ever typed on a thinkpad?
also clitmouse actually makes me more productive when coding so I don't have to leave the keyboard.

>>47645817
Yes I have typed on a Thinkpad. It was worse than my $100 chromebook.

Thinkpad

>god tier linux support
>modular so you can replace anything and upgrade several parts, including cpu on a lot of models
>great battery life on the x series

Macbook
>overheats enough to use as a stove top
>throw it out and buy a new one if you want to upgrade
>made out of easily bendable aluminum
>priced at double what it's worth

That's why.

MacBooks will always bee the best laptop available and any one who denies this is just jealous.

>B-b-but I want something ugly b-because who wants something that looks n-nice?

YOU
ARE
JUST
JEALOUS

Get over it. Either save up or just say "yeah Macbooks are nice but not worth three times the price to me".

>nu-uh der shit for homosex xD

Thinkpads are alright for $400-600 though.

Because dell won
>>
>>47645925
That may be a little of an overstatement. MacBooks can't be the best at things it can't do better than a dinosaur Dell computer.
>>
>>47645925
MacBooks? No. MBPr's? Yes.

Best except for dollar value. This is the secret of the TP.

Also best except for being able to use a dock.
Because
you like
can't.
Unless you buy some shitty 3rd party thunderbolt "dock" that's really more of a port hub than a dock, or you pay out the nose for something nice.

Also best except for number of USB ports.
Because I kinda use those.

>mfw my $250 X220 does all these things

- ex MacFag

Whoever offers 16:10, is the winner for me

>>47645560
>implying i bought it as a Status Symbol
I bought it Because it's cheap, has the Best durability and is pretty much the Best piece of Hardware you can get (if you arent into gaming of course)
I May seem to use it that way Because everytime a Laptop of a collegue brakes down or something doesnt have Linux Support i say
>that wouldnt have happened if you had bought a superior thinkpad
But Thats just for the lulz

>Decide against MemePad
>Nab a Dell 6220

The only problem i had with the x220 was with the wifi drivers on Windows. It works perfectly on Linux though
