Haven't put the 16GB of RAM yet but dropped #Debian into the system. This thing is a beauty. Next purchases will be the backlit keyboard, 9 cell battery, and the SSD. Those will have to wait though.

@catdad This is my new (used but new to me) Thinkpad x230. It's from 2012 but it's way faster than my last work laptop.


@art @catdad That's so cool!

I have a Thinkpad Yoga 11e (3rd Gen) right now, and picking up an x220 or x230 is a really appealing option as an affordable upgrade. Especially because of all the upgrades it can handle.
