just wondering if there is any thinkpad retro collector in the forum.
love at first sight was at an Expo, during the 90s. Full of desktops and there it was...a black thinkpad laptop, the only laptop at the expo
I was so small that i cant remember what model it was, but i bet it was a pentium1 thinkpad. And from what i recall they were showing on the expo some voice recognition software (something very common during the 90s that did not work, and people never used). The price was something that only rich people could afford
then time passed and i got a thinkpad T22, that i still have, nice pentium3 laptop but the screen has too much resolution! 1400x1050... too much for win98! and if you lower the resolution graphics look jerky with letter deformation. Still it has an S3 video chip, and i have no idea how that chip was able to run games decent at 1400x1050
Then i fell in love with a T430. I still use it every single day. Its the only laptop that i sold, passed to other brands...and went back and bought another T430 because i missed it.
It is heavy, it is bulky, nothing like those new thin laptops that they sell today but i still like it so much that i bought an HD+ cable and bought another LCD to increase the resolution a little bit...and i use it everyday.
any thinklove you want to share?
