fiery hot computing take Show more
The meme that "ThinkPads are over" is rooted in a belief that Lenovo made ThinkPads worse than they were under IBM.
Other than the X240, T440/T540, W540, et. al., they really didn't, IMO. Today's problems are the same shit as we saw 15 years ago, and the same shit as we saw 25 years ago.
It's just that everyone else's laptops used to be worse, or people remember cheap consumer models (that IBM didn't push that hard), and now everyone's upped their game.
