qwwerty9363yI would love something like Thinkpad X62, but don't trust it in terms of support, parts, etc.. + you must do the LED mod yourself anyway.
ajit55519373yMost of the thin, good looking laptops are for retarded people. Read somewhere about why Microsoft Surface Laptop did not have USB-C ports, because they were concerned that users would use mobile chargers to charge the laptop.
No customization, everything is soldered on motherboard, CPU/GPU, RAM, even disks nowadays. Battery is glued. Any issues, pay through the nose to get it serviced.
All retarded people want super thin laptops with low profile useless chiclet keyboard, worst thermal management like Apple and everyone is copying without any brains.
Flygger20283yI'm pretty happy that I got my T460p at work, as that ticks pretty much all the boxes of good things :)
idk I love my MacBooks
Condor344133yCurrently using an HP Compaq nx7010 for that exact reason. Mainly because it was gifted to me and I could still run Arch32 on it, but it quickly replaced my other laptop because the keyboard on that thing.. it's a pleasure to type on. Just like a desktop membrane keyboard, and good travel unlike those stupid chiclet keyboards with butterfly switches. And.. I mean, parts are easy to procure and cheap! Apparently these things sell for just €30 for a whole replacement laptop. I don't really know what I'd replace it with either to be honest.
