I'm done with Thinkpads
After 15 years of using Thinkpads daily, I've finally had enough.
My 11 month old x201 has suffered from:
- USB port failing and then falling out (the really useful yellow one that stays powered on during standby)
- Keyboard light failing
- Screen going washed out for no apparently reason, then fixing itself, all apparently at random
- Overheating when sitting on desk during high CPU, causing shutdown with no warning and losing my work, so I now have to run it upside down.
I'm sick of the crap build quality which has been derioriating with every new generation.
Lenovo support tell me I have to send it off and wait a couple of weeks to get it back fixed, and that the USB port falling out is my own fault.
And then there's the stupid widescreen display and lack of HDMI.
Much as I hate Sony, a Vaoi Z will be replacing this heap of junk. At least I'll get a decent screen resolution.
