Purchased so I could finally play...well, any games. The laptop I had before it could handle basically nothing, and this one can play new shit even - though I might need to turn the graphics down a bit for it to be smooth. And then it does all my other computer stuff as well.

I use an old HP 635 that I opened up and upgraded. Now it has an AMD Phenom II quad-core cpu @2.2 ghz instead of the previous dual-core @1.8ghz, a solid state drive, and 4gb RAM. Could still add up to 8gb of RAM but it's not really a concern of mine.

Also put ElementaryOS on it for another breath of life (and it's pretty imo), and installed PowerTOP and other battery saving tools to make the old battery last ~3 hours from full charge (assuming moderate use).

The only reason I would care to upgrade is the weight, otherwise this is all anyone really needs if they're not gaming.

Actually not as flimsy as you'd think. I can pick the entire thing by just the display and rotate and shake it without it turning.
I honestly thought it have to change the way I used a laptop, but if you don't intentionally rotate it, it feels like any other hinge, really.
Nah, it'd be nice if there was one, but it's pretty much like any other laptop without it

As seen here, holding it with one hand, partially rotated without it continuing to move though it's weight should cause it to continue to rotate.
What I'm trying to say is, the hinge is really stiff in all directions, but not impossible to accidentally rotate. Just not as easy as you'd think.

Like the build just sucked or what?

>> No.54710089


Horribly engineered. Shit is just shoved inside with no mind to how it ends up. So, for example, it the weight was heavily biased toward the rear.

Flexy everything. The case flexed, the keyboard flexed, etc.

Shitty finish. The keyboard had some godawful semi-gloss that looks nice at BestBuy, but feels shitty and loads up with fingerprints and smudges.

Constant crashes. For no particular reason, it would just bluescreen. I was able to reduce the frequency by changing some USB setting in the BIOS (disabling "Enable Legacy USB" perhaps? Don't remember). Reporting this to Toshiba resulted in an "oh wow, interesting" non-response.

Shitty sound. They did some promo licensing bullshit deal with Altec Lansing (not even an actually respectable audio company) for the speakers. Well, they sounded like shit. They were just generic drop-in speakers. Compare that to, for example, a Macbook Pro, which will have a very carefully engineered chamber to maximize performance. A Lenovo T420, on the other hand, has simple drop-in speakers, but at least they don't try to market themselves as something they're not.

I have a battlestation and several crappy test laptops, but the laptop I recently acquired is a very gently used (original battery had 4 cycles on it) ThinkPad x220. Upgraded with SSD and 16 gigs RAM.

I needed something that could run big boy desktop apps, be really portable, and have a huge battery while I'm on trains and planes and far away from home.

Dual-booting Windows and Loonix, for image editing, graphic design, and general shitposting.

Six years going stronk, only had to replace the keyboard once because I spilled a drink over it.

I guess I'll just wait until some relative gets a new laptop and gives me the old one (they always do) to "upgrade".

Dell Latitude E6420, and I use it basically for everything because it's rock solid and gets the job done.

And with the CompleteCare warranty if I needed service Dell would send someone to my home to fix it. Or I could just destroy it right now by throwing it off my 3rd floor balcony and watching cars drive over it shattering it into a million fucking pieces, call Dell, say "I dropped it, I need another one..." and within 72 hours I'll have a new one at my door, no questions asked.

Why bother with any other company or products?

Yeah I was always hyped about these toys since childhood.
HP Probook 6475b
Finally bought a used one for 200€, last june.
It had quite good specifications for my taste:
Processor: AMD 2,7GHz
Hard drive: 500GB
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 7520G
but it freezes every now and then and I don't know why (sometimes within a minute and sometimes within 4 hours, it's unpredictable).
I brought it back to the seller which he was supposed to repair it. He "repaired" and tested it 4 times now, but it still keeps freezing. He even said he swapped the ram and hard drive after repairing it.
Also gave it to my friend but he had no luck either, we just formated the beast a few times.
I've written down the errors but they're long gone since I gave them to those guys along with the laptop.
Now it's just sitting ducks, harvesting dust - I don't use it anymore, except sometimes for skype while playing on main PC or doing other minor things, all I can do is just feel sorry for this machine because it can't work to it's expectations.
Now that I doubt that I can repair it, I've been thinking of selling the parts so I don't stand out as another asshole who sold a malfunctioning toy to another unlucky man.

works for what I do, needed a cheap laptop to remote around, almost nothing is really run right from the laptop. there's also a couple things that concerned me at first that I later learned were by design such as the power button having a light pipe with no LED because it's a cheap system in a re-used case.

HP DV7, Arch Linux, light browsing.
would not recommend any consumer grade hp laptops, only business or enterprise grade, those kick ass.

that being said on a 9 cell battery i get 14 hours of good use.

i actually use a knock off wireless apple keyboard, its pretty dank.
it took some getting used to but my apple keyboard is tits.
