Comment: Re:Thinkpad X-series (Score 1) 479

by lemonylimey (#22330144) Attached to: Best Laptop for Going Around the World?
I have an IBM X40, and a year ago I had a bicycle accident, being thrown off the bike at 20mph on to a concrete path. I landed smack on top of the X40, which was just sitting in a unpadded courier bag. Damage to laptop: Scratched corner. Damage to me: Sprained knee, fractured elbow.

It's a tough laptop.

The extended battery really does give it a 7 to 9 hour life, too.
