Agreed! May not be the most modern looking and shiny devices in the world, but they are so well built,well supported and well specced.

I love my work issued X201s Im a converteee! their style and appearance have hardly changed in all the time theyve been on market, but they do have a certain retro style charm now :)

theylll have to prize it out of my cold dead hands on system refresh time!

I think the ThinkPad will be around when other brands have come and gone. It's a great device.

ThinkPads are brilliant. I adore those keyboards. If I didn't want this really exotic laptop config I have now I'd have gone with a ThinkPad too.
