Level1Techs is a community designed around sensible utilitarian individuals and what better way to show that than through our mutual love for our slate rectangles.
The Thinkpad is a pinnacle of business laptops. Its no-nonsense style, coupled with the stellar keyboard and enterprise support make it the epitome of a workhorse.
To quote 4chan’s /g/ board’s own /TPG/,
Used machines are plentiful and cheap
Excellent keyboards - tactile feel and quiet
Great durability: magnesium rollcage for structural integrity, with high quality plastic body panels
Utilitarian design: e.g. indicator LEDs, 7 row keyboard layout on older models
Docking stations that easily turns your laptop into a desktop
Easy to repair (most models), upgrade & maintain thanks to readily available service manuals for every model, spare parts easy & cheap to obtain
The best TrackPoint™, great for those who type a lot or hate swiping their fingers all over a touchpad
Excellent GNU/Linux & *BSD support
All Thinkpad users are welcome here, from the vintage to the modern. If you’ve got an old x60 that’s been used and abused, post about it. if you’ve got a brand new T480s that’s been compiling source code like a workhorse, post about it!
This is not the place to post about Thinkpad news or Lenovo releases, please use the other threads and posts for that.
By THINK I mean take everything into consideration. I refuse to make the sign more specific. If a man just sees THINK, he’ll find out what I mean. We’re not interested in a logic course.
