any recommendations for a developer friendly laptop that is cheap but not so cheap i’ll regret it. i’m lost in a twisty maze of LPDDR and i7 model numbers. i assume that all windows trackpads are equally terrible.


@lee.justin.m I recently bought a used Thinkpad W540 for ~$550 on ebay, and it’s pretty fantastic. Not super portable - get T-series if you want that.


As a counterpoint - I've had a lot of issues with Lenovo's ThinkPad drivers over the years, and they seem to have a bit too much BIOS customization leading to strange behaviours, especially with displays and audio.
