What laptop brand does /tech/ suggest? First time posting 07/03/2020 (Fri) 16:10:48 No. 3078
I'm honestly up for any brand, I live in Hong Kong (no I don't support the neolibs that is currently getting ) so I could get some mainland brands as well.
>>3078 I have a Lenovo T450s and its great, Thinkpads have been getting less good as time goes on though Really depends on how much you want to pay and what you want to run, I'm pretty much stuck on Thinkpads because I hate using trackpads and need the trackpoint but I've looked at Huawei and Xiaomi and some of the higher end Huawei devices are really nice with excellent 3:2 screens and good Linux support If you're planning to run Linux and spend a fair bit of money on a quality machine System76 do Linux dedicated laptops that are supposed to be pretty good and they come with Coreboot

You have to tell us what you want out of a laptop. Does it have to be powerful, durable, affordable, large, portable, etc... Laptops are pretty shit these days though, because they are produced more as a fashion accessory than as a tool that needs to be handy and ergonomic.
My intent is to have mostly desk work so a good monitor and RAM is nice. I don't plant to game on it so a dedicated GPU isn't my concern. Budget is <550USD
>>3104 T, W, E or P series thinkpad Check out /tpg/ on 4chan for specifics, T440p is current reigning thiccboi, socketed upgradeable processor, cheap for the machine you get, good expansion options T470 should also be doable with your budget but that generally has a 2c/4t ultrabook processor which is fine irl but isn't as nice as a proper quad core If you don't want a thinkpad a new line of Ryzen mobile processors just came out that are meant to be very good, you could probably get an entry level machine with 4th gen ryzen for that kind of budget, or pick up a higher spec machine 2nd hand
