Why are thinkpads so sexy? Nibby, chime in on this one.

Just ordered my Mom a lightly used X220 for like $80. She finds herself travelling a lot more lately and the battered old T420 she’s been using has been annoying for her to lug around. She wanted something more portable and with the old-style keyboard so this fits the bill.

I’ll be migrating her to an SSD too. The HDD she has has been with her for three laptops now and it’s gonna eventually fail. Does anyone know any good utilities for automating this?


I’m still researching replacements for my Lenovo Y510. I ideally want something like the P51 pictured at the top but those cost a grand USED so that's just a pipe dream.
