an unhealthy obsession of Thinkpads?? I’ve been an IT Tech Support Technician since before laptops ever existed. The first laptops we ever purchased were IBM Thinkpads. To this day, I can pull one off the shelf, plug it up and it will boot. These are 15 – 16 year old systems, how many Dells or Toshiba’s that old can do that? These systems have had a hard life, in the hands of a Sales force that beat the crap out of them. The company I worked for bought out several company’s that we inherited Dell, Toshiba, Acer and HP laptops, all that were constantly dying and we would replace them with a new Thinkpad. They are built like tanks and can stand up to abuse, unlike most of the laptops built today. The T and X series Thinkpads are excellent systems and for my money, that’s what I own.
