@hund I'm wondering if the new thinkpads are as good as the old (I don't have a plan B for my computers).
@jalvarez It depends on what you define as the older ones. It probably varies from user to user as well. :)
@hund Well, for me, the robustness of something implies reparability (unless it is so robust that it never breaks :P)
Nowadays, the perfect combo (for some manufacturers) is design products to fail right after the warranty expires and make them impossible to repair.
If all manufacturers follow that trend in the future, it worries me.
@jalvarez It's absolutely a trend for a lot of companies, but we're also seeing a surprisingly large trend of the complete opposite as well. Consumers are only getting smarter and more educated. :)
