Why does /g/ love thickshit and hate thin? You guys must lack complete social awareness to lug around some ugly, bulky ass shit in public.

>muh durability

I don't have the motor skills of a monkey with down syndrome. I've had my sleek thin as fuck ultra book for a couple of years and it's still in perfect condition.

Is the whole thickness thing just some autistic edgy contrarian shit?

Thinner laptops have objectively inferior keyboards. Thats reason alone to despise them.

Use a fucking desktop if you want larger, more powerful hardware. Laptops aren't meant to be complete powerhouses like those shitty gaymen blocks with neon lights, dragons and shit. It's as bad as wearing a flame shirt or playing a 3ds in public.

I would rather have a machine with a fuck load of ports and a huge battery over novelty form factor.

Some of us need to do more than browse Facebook and complete art projects. I need a computer capable of handling modeling and numerical computational programs, as well as portability.
>Mac can do that!!1!
I also need a computer that can run industry software.

I'm to poor to into gaymen pc, so my thinkpad T420 gets me through. $250 for great specs, I can't complain. And the utilitarian design has grown on me I have to say. Though it still kinda hurts when I lug it out of my backpack and all the qt macfag grills give me weird looks.

normal people dont care what crap people haul around, besides if you're done with college most buisness laptops arent sleek tiny ultrabooks but rather thicker laptops that work with docks

Odds are if a laptop is thicker it's going to have a better keyboard, better hardware and the hardware is going to be easy to access if i ever want to upgrade something or replace it. I don't really mind carrying around the extra weight because im not a fucking pussy man child and normies dont judge other people based off of their laptops that's something /g/ does
>>
>>51512251
And their design MO totally misses the point, so what's yours?

Shaving a few millimeters off of the thickness means fuck all when you're trying to work on an airplane, a car/bus or otherwise sub-optimal environments that subnotebooks are designed for. It might be thinner, but it's still hobbled by an awkward 12''+ 16:9/16:10 display that destroys any actual gains you'll get from them over older, thicker systems.

That's not even mentioning the fact that subnotebooks used to actually be reasonably powerful and featureful even with a small size, and the cancerous "thin is in" mentality annihilates that utility with mindless "progress" for the sake of progress dictated by consumers who don't even need a subnotebook for their use case in the first place.

I own a thinkpad and I still think it isn't durable enough, but it's not bad for what it is. My X201t is the best damn laptop I've ever owned.
>>
>>51509575

With respect to the physical dimensions and weight; as long as it's between 13 and 15 inches and under 4 kilograms, it's all the same as far as I'm concerned. Lugging around anything under 4kg is basically the same as lugging around the messenger bag or backpack while empty.

With respect to 'ugly' and 'complete lack of social awareness'; first, aesthetics have always been extremely subjective, and secondly, it really does not matter as long as it isn't quite literally disgusting. Does it have maymay h4xor stickers all over it and is covered in Cheeto crumbs? No? Then its fine. Nobody ever gave me shit over my thicker-than-an-inch laptop during the year and a half that I've had it. However, I've gotten loads of complements over my apparel and also for losing a shitload of weight and not being a fat fuck anymore.

Thinking that not looking chíc and modern is a dealbreaker is just as bad as buying a Thinkpad only because of the edgy /g/ contrarian aspect (which does actually happen a lot). It's a fucking *tool*. It's not for showing off to your college buddies, nor for looking like a counter-culture faggot. It's for doing computation. The thing with the best specs, battery life, and Linux compatability I could find within my budget happened to be a barely used top-line Dell Precision. They're kind of thick. I simply don't give a shit.

In my geophysics major, the computer lab has the powerful workstations booked for a whole fucking month. Then you've got the general use computers which are dual-core first-gen Core i Pentiums with like 2GB of RAM. I need to constantly compile FORTRAN and C source. I usually measure my compile and runtimes in 2-minute intervals on my laptop; on the general use desktops, its more like 10-minute intervals. That's why I have a laptop in the first place. Though being able to SSH into a shitbox, dumping a bunch of non-urgent work onto it and checking results two days later is always nice.

Ultrabooks and/or thin laptops have a tendency of not being built well especially in the sense they don't ever have as good heatsinks or fans as a standard laptop. Thinkpads are thick for a reason. Anything much thicker than that, especially op's pic, is dumb. Going the other way with it and having an old ass 90s laptop that's thick for the sake of it being thick is stupid. Get a getac or toughbook if you want to pretend that matters.
>>
>>51509919
You know, the Thinkpad would look much better if all the ports were black, or at least the same accent color and if it was more square. Newer Thinkpads are much better looking.

if you think anybody but you gives a fuck how bulky your laptop is, you're delusional

there is no point in being this obsessed with this inconsequential, superficial shit because unless you're a salesman trying to make a slick impression, LITERALLY NOBODY GIVES A SHIT ABOUT YOUR AUTISTIC SHITFIT ABOUT THE SIZE OF OTHER PEOPLES LAPTOPS

just saying, OP
>>
I don't like thick devices. I like PRACTICAL devices. Thinness requires sacrificing durability, modularity, performance, and battery life. It may look good, but it leads to a bad experience.

I keep my laptop in a bag. Thinness does not make it more portable. So there is no point.

Apple can get away with them being thin because of the metal body, but the airs are pretty on the edge - I've seen some heifer completely fuck a macbook air by sitting on it.
>>
>>51509919
Well I mean
there's so many more useful ports on the thinkpad too, if it's fat and has functionality I'm okay with that.

Because making choices because of what lifestyle you appeals to you is just the same as every choice made on what lifestyle appeals to you.

But when you buy a gadget because you need to get shit done. It becomes a superior way of choosing your tools.

> I don't have the motor skills of a monkey with down syndrome.
what are you doing for 4chan then?
You see, that exactly what I'm talking about. You're here because your lifestyle makes it necessary to be on 4chan to be accepted or just edgy.
Thats gay.

PS: We are not here to be appealing for you when in public.
Stop beeing so self centered you little piece of shit.

It seems like they're talking about killing the MacBook Air line specifically, not every MacBook line (MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro)
