I’m not even mad. I’ll just play Star Citizen until it CP77 comes out.

The media cover the left is getting is becoming ridiculous. You're either willfully ignorant or just dumb if you don't see it.

And now I'm getting 30k crashes every 15 minutes. It was becoming fun.

I've been playing for several hours at a time the past few nights. It's slowly starting to become playable. The more I play the more I wish I'd bought a Cutlass.

Why? Why do they have to send their gamers a message? Can't they just leave them alone to play the game? Why do they have to be 'educated' in leftist tropes?

Anyway, you just lost my money. I wanted to be entertained, not lectured.  >:(

Companies don’t really care about the diversity. They care about their income, and dressing up like a girl and chopping your wiener off is really hot right now. If you don’t play a game purely for anti-SJW reasons then you’re not much better than the indignant SJW cancel crew.

Just started watching Star Trek TOS for the first time. Currently on episode 9. In one of the first episodes there was a villain Kirk had to fight, and he made a gravestone and hole that Kirk was supposed to fall into, but the gravestone said James R. Kirk. Any Star Trek loremasters know what's up with that?

Just got it. The trackpad sucks complete ass compared to my 7 year old Macbook. Battery life is ok. Build quality of the laptop overall is amazing. I might return it and get another Air like I should have done to begin with. If it wasn't for the jank trackpad I'd 100% keep it.

I returned my Dell XPS 9500 and got a 2020 MacBook Air. You won't regret doing the same. If trackpad quality is a big deal, nothing is even in the same realm of existence as the MacBook. The new keyboards are pretty good too, although the butterfly keyboard on my work MBP was starting to grow on me.

Yeah, agreed. Generally the Thinkpad one is decent compared to some other brands, but it just fails any time you need it to be precise. If they just copied Apple’s trackpad tech it would be a pretty dank laptop.

Hmm, this may be a difficult decision. The flippy screen is awesome for watching videos and doesn’t wobble at all. The keyboard is hella good. The chassis feels very sturdy, all carbon fiber maybe? It’s hard to tell. But it feels like a very lightweight, super durable plastic. As durable as aluminum, if not more so. I’d be really sad to lose all these ports too. And the jet black finish looks really nice.

Oh, it says it's made out of magnesium on the bottom.

It's in transit. Currently waiting to leave the UPS distribution center in Alaska. Hopefully a polar bear doesn't eat it.

I went into a Walmart many years ago whilst on holiday because I wanted to see what real Americans looked like. You wouldn't believe how big they are in real life.  😱

Obesity and general cultural degeneracy have become normal here to the point that you don’t notice it on a day-to-day basis. It was only when I started watching videos of Japanese and Chinese city life that it hit me how disgusting American society has become. People here really are rude, fat, and narcissistic to a higher degree than most other developed countries. But that’s probably just the skinny privilege talking.

Yeah sorry, I don’t want anyone to live in a world where medical bankruptcy is possible.

And I don't want to live in world where you never exercise, smoke 20 cigarettes a day, drink 6 litres of coke and have take away meals three times a day until you eat yourself up to the weight of a small family hatchback, and then have you pass me a share of your medical bills. BUY INSURANCE, YOU FAT BASTARD!  >o<

In America you can walk into any given Walmart and see a bunch of fat poor people in sweatpants loading their carts with garbage. If they weren’t such idiots I’d have more sympathy for them. The culture here makes it impossible to sustain a nationwide universal healthcare system.

Sorry you think it’s nonsense, but no I won’t go away.

And I'm sorry you apparently can't infer the specific brand of collectivism I'm referring to.

Why would I let you get away with lazily communicating your desire to destroy things?

The only thing you did is show you can't follow a discussion. If you wanted to get me you should have posted something else entirely.

Society is based on some degree of collectivism

Yes, and cars have four wheels. I'd appreciate it if you'd keep your usual nonsense and non-starter arguments out of this very nice thread.

Also, if you think Biden is a Marxist, then you literally have no idea what Marxism is.

Biden is whatever the goons behind him want him to be. Also, Thork is right. The disease of collectivism must be rooted out and destroyed with extreme prejudice.

Whoa, I ordered mine on the same day. We’re thinkpad twinsies.

Yeah except you ordered the worse ThinkPad.
Clearly y'all haven't had the fun of a P52 and its "defective" Thunderbolt port.

My first laptop was a hand-me-down IBM Thinkpad something or other. It must have weighed 10 pounds or more.

I have no idea, I haven't received the laptop yet.
Chy-na

I ordered it 3 days ago and they estimated 5-6 weeks before I submitted the order. I'd say I'm well within the realm of expectations here.

Lenovo tends to use actual NVME drives these days so if your ok opening up the bottom screws, ya can usually replace it yourself.

I never got the MacBook. But I did finally order an X13 Yoga. I got the model with a 128GB SSD that I’ll be upgrading after, since it looks like Lenovo copied Apple and charges ridiculous sums for more storage. That confuses me since you can’t upgrade MacBook storage after you order it, but you can with the Thinkpad. I also got the 400 nit “low power” display. Since it’s a custom configuration, it’s taking longer than normal to ship. Also, the estimated ship date has changed every single day since I ordered it a few days ago. Not sure what that’s all about.

I ordered a T14, also with the 400-nit display, and also with 128 GB storage (Lenovo has always tried to scam you on upgrades at order time). I got the AMD variant with a Ryzen 4750U, objectively the correct CPU.

Didn't see the AMD option available on their website yet for the X13.
