speak for yourself but no one else. My laptop runs Linux Mint 17.3, all devices work because it takes 5 minutes of research to find laptops that will work. I don't do games. OpenShot and gimp are good enough media apps for me, vlc for viewing. SageMath works well, it was made for Linux. Spreadsheets with LIbreOffice are fine.

Self-inflicted? Yes. Problem? There is where you'll get lots of disagreement. The American Dream of a single-family house on its own lot is still very, very compelling for the majority of Americans. Many - I'd say a clear majority of - Americans want no part of a European-style rabbit warren, no matter how much our betters in the Northeast tell us it would be good for us.

We build out because we can, and because that's what we want. Yes, we know that's not conducive to mass transit, and we don't care. Europeans telling us we're doing it wrong get very, very tiresome.

plenty of male actors and rock stars pose for glamour shots and show off their bodies in movies and photo shoots and concerts.

plenty of women actresses and porn actresses and models want to be evaluated based on their looks. they want to show off what they have and to be considered beautiful. they want to be a sex symbol / sex object ( and plenty of men in entertainment want exactly that too)

it is puritanical for certain types of feminists to try to complain about this.

Note I say certain types because there are other types that embrace the porn and glamour photography and art.

eh, plenty of gay men will say women look like pile of ugly bloated marshmallows and that the lumpy bumpy male figure is where it's at. And plenty of straight women will say ditto even if your mom liked the female porn.

The particular type of feminist who whines about judging women on appearance seem to miss many woman love to show off what they have and want to have great appearance. In general, most women want to look fabulous, they spend a ton of money to do so. Face masks, lotions, hair care/trimming/removal/sculpting, makeup, cosmetic dental work, clothing to accent or alter perception of body shape, breast implants....well the list just goes on and on for usual woman.

The going price for the T430 on eBay seems to be just over $150. I got one for a friend; while I didn't remove the Windows 7 Pro install that it came with (for his use case, Windows is the only supported choice), but it seemed to eb a good, solid machine. I wouldn't mind having one for myself to run Linux on if Second Life ran on Intel graphics on Linux systems.
