@ln I'm surprised how usable my X220 still is
love this compute
@f2k1de it's my daily driver and I love it
I have no idea what I would replace it when it irreparably fails one day
Elen's X210 is great on paper, and amazingly fast and energy efficient when it works, but it is far from being rock solid :/
I need ports, I need smol form factor (❤️ 12") need to be sturdy, repairable, and have a Good keyboard.
I'd love a Reform with a powerful processor, preferably Ryzen... but that would require a mainboard redesign
@uint8_t X230 mit neuer CPU die mehr als 16 GB RAM kann wäre auch super. Weil alles über x240 ist Mist. Habe da schon viele gehabt und das ist alles moderner China Schrott.
@f2k1de I'm sure I'm biased but among X201, X220, X230, I like the X220 keyboard the most; it has all the keys, big Esc, big delete, browser navigate keys (yes I actually use those) and the keys feel so good. I also really like how the F-keys are aligned with the numerals
good news is that it's possible to install the X220 keyboard into an X230 (just the embedded controller needs to be educated a bit)
@f2k1de having an expresscard slot is also good so I could use an eGPU if I had any :D
@uint8_t oder für bis zu 5 gbit/s uplink
@coopdot it needed bios hacking and covering a pin on the card! But it works great.
