Bye Thinkpads

It is painfully obvious that someone at Lenovo (when it seperated itself from IBM) had decided 2.5 years ago, models with numbers 60 and above should start falling apart after 2 years. Some parts that were metal before were cleverly replaced with cheaper pastic parts that would wear out due to wear and tear after 2 years. It is literally falling apart on me. My older Thinkpad that is more than 4 years old is still holding up well, aside from its lack of horsepower. What I hate above all else is when a company will intentionally retard their products, in this case going against their motto for being tough and reliable, so that they can make a few extra bucks on maintenance. In the end, they betray their loyal customers. I'm no expert on those things but it would seem like that would hurt them in the long run.

I'm walking away from Lenovo, formerly known as IBM. Bye.
