Rights are only necessary in the context of a state. States are not necessary. Necessity is conditional. You need [thing] in order for [other thing]. When it's said food is a necessity, that's shorthand for "food is necessary for the continuation of life." Necessity is a spook if you don't have defined parameters. OP is a faggot.

Sucks for you. I got a Vaio VPCEB23FM for 80 bucks, replaced the battery for 20, replaced the sound card for 30 (USBs were part of it and busted), and got a new motherboard for 30, upgraded the cpu from an intel i3 to an i5 for 35, and upgraded the RAM to 8GB for 40. Totaled out at $235.

I restored a broken Laptop i got a (HP 7400) C2D T4200 2.0Ghz machine with 4GB ram and 160HDD
it didn't support a ssd though too old.
Gave it too my mum because i needed a SD card reader and the stupid thing didn't support it.
finding anything with DDR2 is rather easy but they don't upgrade and i'll rather have something newer.

Normies want macbooks, normies keep macbooks and normies even buy old macbooks so they can be seen with a macbook.

Recommend T420 or X220 with 9cell battery plus battery slice if they really want some hours out of it
Let them use my X220 for the weekend
They love the battery life and it plays all their shit fine
Show them places to buy from
See them the next weekend
they bought 13" macbook pro

I travel for a living, which is why I appreciate Thinkpads. Build quality, durability and a hell of a keyboard.

Jose Roberts

I still like Thinkpads, just not the ones you're going to get for $250. I have an X1 Yoga for work and for my non-travel machine I have an X230 that I bought new and have been using for 4+ years now (bought September 2012).

That being said build quality has fallen off a bit
X1 Yoga touchscreen went sporadic on my first machine
get a brand new replacement from work, within 2 weeks the trackpoint dies (sporadic clicking/movement). disabling it stops the problem but the scratchpad sucks and I'm totally reliant on a bluetooth mouse

Also I travel for a living too (travel fell off in 2016, coming back up this year, but I did 120+ flights/yr from 2016-2017 and I'm almost Marriott Lifetime Platinum [750 nights/2million points] at age 27). So I appreciate weight in addition to make greatly.

My only computer is a T60, and that does all I need a computer to do. If I ever do upgrade the only demand will be that I want something fanless.

Jason Mitchell
Jason Mitchell

Interestingly, the only issues I've heard of involving current Thinkpad lines always come back to either one of the cheap 'education' models or the X1.
I've got a T420 I got myself recently as a stopgap solution, but I'm enjoying using the thing so much that I think it's going to be my daily carry for the foreseeable. It's a little heavier than an ultrabook, but I'm prepared to make that trade for the toughness of the machine. I see portability as being a combination of durability, size and utility. No good nailing size but flunking the other two.

I am, in-fact, a proud owner of a Thinkpad T420 (which I had initially acquired for under $90 in excellent condition) but this thread is really stupid. Even if I were to upgrade all the components, I would still be unable to run a lot of high-end software. Everyone's usage of a computer differs greatly and to suggest that someone's needs can be met for the same price is absurd.
