I finally bought the new laptop I've wanted for a couple years.

Thinkpad x270 (2017) 7th gen i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, double battery and FHD screen.

Itnis pretty much the same spec as my x270 I have for work 😄

I am very uncomfortable about spending £500 on it, but hopefully it'll keep me going for longer than the 2014, 4th gen i5, 4GB RAM Acer Aspire S3 has.

I do not want to hear about other, cheaper options, thanks.


The Acer has been great for the past few years! And it still works.

But the 4 hour battery, 4GB RAM and physical size no longer stand up to the usage pattern I have.

@s Ohh, throwback! An acer aspire was my first laptop, in 2012. Two years later I bought a very second-hand Thinkpad … which is still hanging useful at chaos events, for random volunteer tasks.

@rixx This acer was my first laptop too!
I got it in 2014. Just before I started my degree.
Its been through a lot with me.
