I got this lovely Lenovo Ideapad Flex 15 for the cost of nothing at all after helping the previous owner transfer her data off it & wipe the drive. (A failed windows 8 recovery had left it bootlooping to a kernel panic, and it was set not to allow booting from USB, so she chucked it in a closet for a few months and got a new machine.)
Quad-core i7, 8GB DDR3, 500GB SSHD. Far and away more powerful than anything else I own. It was kinda grungy when I got it but after a solid couple hours cleaning it looks great. The big display and numeric keypad are going to be a godsend for tracking. It's not completely perfect, the backspace key is a little intermittent and its purported touchscreen functionality doesn't seem to work, but who cares.
Oh yeah, and since I wiped the drive I got to load on my choice of OS.
...Yep, I went there. 😈
Ironically I'd just ordered 16GB of RAM for my actual Macbook Pro before scoring this thing. No matter, always room for two. 😁
