      It’s like 8 years ago or so, I had the InfinityBook with a skylake processor.

      Bluetooth stopped working, send it in then it worked and stopped again, then send it in and it worked and stopped again.

      The microphone had broken noises, tested it even under windows to be sure it’s a hardware problem.

      Discoloration where the hands are left and right of the trackpad.

      Plastic bezel around the screen fell off, the tape was bad quality.

      Ah I wrote it down last year here:

          Probably any of the ThinkPads I had. They were sturdy and just ran everything I put on them. Second place would be the Dell XPS 13, I like it because it is very small and light, but in the one I have now they already had to replace the motherboard after a month and when holding it with one hand it bends and sometimes does a click on the trackpad, but I don’t want to send it in a second time because I normally don’t use it like that.

            Oh, cool. I’ve been planning to get a second-hand L14 Gen 1 with AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U, 16GB (2x8) SODIMM RAM and 512GB storage, although I do have a choice to pick a slightly expensive X390 with Intel Core i7-8665U, 16GB soldered RAM and 512GB storage.

            At least from my perspective, I could upgrade the L14 to 32GB and 1TB, but if I were to get the X390, I could use it as my main device to SSH through another second-hand ThinkCentre or a similar mini-PC.

            Since they’re both imports from the USA, I wanted to avoid paying duty and tax by having it bought through a distant relative from the US. Only if there was a way to buy second-hand laptops from China to India.

              Do not get the L-models. They’re cheap, have crappy build quality and I daresay that thinkpad skimps on the non-obvious parts that will hinder performance - even though the machine looks powerful on paper.

              Put your money into a better product instead.
