    Alright, champ, buckle up!

    Think of a ThinkPad, a laptop, and a Chromebook like different types of cars.

    A Thinkpad is like a big, strong truck. It's really tough and can handle a lot of work. It's great for people who need to do serious stuff like work or school projects.

    A laptop is like a regular car. It can do lots of things, like play games, watch videos, or do homework. It's good for everyday stuff.

    A Chromebook is like a small, speedy scooter. It's really fast and good for basic things like browsing the internet, checking emails, and doing simple schoolwork. It's not as powerful as a laptop or a ThinkPad, but it's super easy to use.

    So, ThinkPad is big and strong, laptop is versatile like a regular car, and Chromebook is quick and simple like a scooter.

      I'm not a child that tosses his Nintendo Gameboy so hard it makes drywall holes. What's the appeal of "a tough, hardy laptop that won't break"?

        just because you don't plan on throwing things around doesn't mean you should intentionally choose something more fragile. anything that is designed to be portable should have some degree of thought out into the toughness, because in the real, outside world, shit happens and you are not in 100% control of everything that happens around or to you and your stuff. to think otherwise is childish.
        if you don't want or like having stronger stuff, more power to you, but to call someone a child for wanting something strong is just sheer irony.

        dell took over this ages ago, and even lenovo stopped using Thinkpads for that market over a decade ago. they have more rugged devices for that, but everyone srill buys toughbooks anyway.
        thinkpads were never engineered for really "outdoors" or "worksite" tasks anyway, they were just designed to be good enough for the majority of envirobments, which is the same reason they have a bunch of ports, because one boardroom might need HDMI while another needs VGA, etc. less relevant these days, but they still keep it up with USB A and ethernet, etc.

    In any case, try to get a thinkpad if you value

    >ridiculously HIGH durability, my daily was a T500 from 2008 a year ago
    >the overall IQfy feel + a e s t h e t i c s
    You will be the "unfrickable" person in any room, I'll guarantee you that, but at least you will have style.
