Thank you all !
X-series Thinkpad are the only laptops I own since 2004, as I've always been fond of this category. Small, light and long battery life have always been my main criterias when it comes to laptop computers.
I've personnaly used and abused a few of the machines you see on these pictures (especially the X31 and the X60, while at university and while traveling), I bought other models recently cause I love to restore and revive these great and sturdy machines
My X31 will forever be a great companion, and surprisingly linked to many great traveling memories.
Been doing a lot of backpacking through Europe when I was in my 20's, and my X31 was always in my bag, she never let me down !
I remember beeing writing an email in Sweden in 2006 or 2007 with the X31, in Luleå, to tell family I was ok. It was in July, midnight, and the sun was still in the sky. I remember this specific episode with my X31 in my mind
X220 seems so wide when standing next to the rest of the batch...
Yes, I think many of us here miss the 4:3 ratio...
I still frequently use the X60 (as a ssh console, to monitor my servers) and the X40 (to write / type mails while listening to music)/
I also own another X31 with a dead and removed screen, used 24/7 as a light linux server (basically a Tiny tiny RSS server).
I didn't include the X30 in the picture cause I wanted to show sort of an evolution (X30 share almost the same design with X31).
Incoming soon to this family : a X24, unknown state, bought 10€...Should be in the mailbox in the upcoming days.
On my to-buy list now :
- Thinkpad 240X (or Z if I'm lucky enough)
- Thinkpad X301
- Parts to fix my 701C, this tiny black box is an ultra-portable in my opinion
