I wonder which is toughest... TP, Let's Note, or Sony VAIO

#1 Post by Yukikaze » Tue Aug 21, 2018 5:22 am

A while back I saw YT vids of Toshiba's factory/testing lab (they unlisted the lab ones soon after) where all the equipment was shown - including one where motherboards are heated and checked for circuit cracks. But as for hinge testing and all that, Panasonic hasn't shown us much. Sony did show some pics and info years back and the new VAIO actively promoted it (Azumino Finish checking too) but only last year we saw Yamato Labs' testing and so which brand is toughest? Sony began testing because IBM was doing it.
Modified T470 to look like TP Anniversary Edition; TP 25; E550; T540p; wants a T420 or P1 to see what's good.

Sometimes I wonder, how these tests are being carried out. For example I have never seen a Thinkpad T61 with firm hinges, they are ALWAYS wobbly. If they properly tested those things, there is no way they could have passed those tests. I mean those hinges start to develop a play literally within a few weeks of use, on a machine that would be like what, a hundred open-close cycles?

So yeah, I am sure tests are being done, but I am also certain, that in many cases they forget to account for every variable. Or maybe skip the whole testing, thinking "well this hinge (/some other part) is almost the same as on the previous model, we can surely skip this time wasting testing procedure, and save some money".
Laptops after the 4:3 aspect ratio era are non-existent to me.
