T450 #1: Performs worse and worse over days if not rebooted and has strange issues with monitors and docks
T450 #2: When put to sleep the HDD spins up every 10 seconds.
P70: When put to sleep it BSODs
Custom #1: Sound issues once in a while even though it recognizes playing sounds.
This doesn't even touch my problems with W7....
And those are the ones I can think of right now...so what can I give the FRUIT credit for as much as I despise them?
MacOSX Sierra....well it just works. There's no stupid sound problems, slow downs over time, BSODs...and unlike Linux the programs I want to run actually are on the platform. That doesn't mean I'm switching just yet...but that isn't a NO yet....though if I did I would Hackintosh a ThinkPad.
And I'm just going to put this out there....my 6-core i7 w/ GTX 980 custom desktop...well it gets its butt kicked by a 2013 MBA w/ a 1.7GHz ULV i7 and integrated graphics when running Fusion and Chrome....and I can tell you that is ALL W7 just being a pain.
Somebody at MS needs to go revive Terry A. Davis and get him to reprogram the Windows operating system...and it better be led by a Project Manager who has a sense of competence in making a USABLE OS(probably why Apple makes decent OS's is because they pulled a W10 with MacOS 9...oh what a P.O.S what was)
The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
