Other business laptops are welcome in /tpg/ (Dell Latitude/Precision, HP EliteBook/ZBook).

Modern models:
>X220/X230 - 12", 768p, cheap and light
>T420/T430 - 14", 900p, widely available, socketed CPU, both Coreboot-compatible (Ivy Bridge CPU support on T420); Old keyboard swap on *30 series
>T520/530; W520/530 - 15", 1080p, DTR, 32GB RAM on quadcore models, USB 3.0
>T440p/540p; W540/1 - Last Thinkpads with socketed processors, easily replaceable trackpad (W541 doesn't need trackpad replacement)
T440s - best design/price
>P-Series - 15'' + 17'', 4K display, up to 64GB of RAM, Xeon CPU option. Expensive.

no video inputs besides coax, would have already got that hooked up otherwise, unless I'm a complete brainlet and theres some way to locally put video into a tv that only has coax, but as far as I can tell it seems pretty difficult nearing impossible

They can if they can simulate a pulse with his dead bodies finger prints before the 48 hour timer is up.
Plus unless there is another zero day exploit those israeli hackers won't be of much help, say what you will about Apple but at least they don't buckle instantly like Microsoft and Google

I have literally no idea what I did to make it work. Following the nvidia guide breaks X and everything else. Having Nouveau anywhere near the system fucks shit up. No guide works.I gambled which packages to install and somehow I got it working.
But Debian is autistic towards non-free stuff. I have a thinkpad and it forced me to get some wi-fi driver on a usb stick during install even though the package is in the official (non-free) repositories.

Some genious has been constantly posting questions about external graphics cards so i decided to give a concise answer to his questions. Yes you can , Yes it has been around for a long time, i'm talking HD 5870 long time, here is the ebay link

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Laptop-Expresscard-34-To-2-PCI-E-x16-slots-Riser-Card-for-Network-Graphics-Card-/191547810648?hash=item2c9923a358:m:mqwgpNsctQe8t4ASjkU9ahw

Just buy a decent tier thinkpad with an expresscard slot.

There isn't a problem using it like this, but if you drop it one more time you're probably going to regret it. I suggest getting a new bottom plate if you can find one. If not then take the bottom off, hot glue gun the pieces back together or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hj_tBDLctQ8
