Play nice, and respect other peoples' needs without belittling them or getting ecstatic and irrational. You don't need to like other peoples' preferences and needs, but you do need to respect them in kind.Bibin wrote:roll your face around in the mud.
Not everyone uses these machines in the same way, and there's the fault in only offering one model for everyone. If I don't like what they release, I don't buy it. I've already got several "classic" ThinkPads that suit my needs very nicely. Five or six years down the line when things progress enough in my line of work to finally not need an ODD, I'll probably pick one up used as a collectible and call it a day.
I'll continue to use my T420 indefinitely if necessary, that was the point of my buying and upgrading it at the start of the year before this initiative was announced.
I really do want to be able to buy one of these things - to, as has been said - hopefully prove to Lenovo that there is a market for something like this to allow additional, more specific lineups to be resurrected. But I can't justify spending a four figure sum on a machine I only find partially useful - again, because I've already got machines that are serving me quite nicely, without the feature compromise.
That said - this is my own preferences for a personal work unit. I'd have no issues whatsoever buying them in bulk for my clients...
