well, it seems that it is time for my 2¢.

Until the xx20 series (X220, T420 and 520, designed by IBM) the ThinkPads were great. The xx30 series were mere acceptable; since xx40 series (designed by Lenovo) I am through with Thinkpad.
My wife still happily runs a X201 - what a fabulous machine, albeit a bit old.
I for one run and carry my good old X220 (8G RAM, M.2 SSD + 1 TB HD, new WiFi) and love it (except the screen resolution only HD). Both machines run Linux-Mint.
If my X220 or the X201 of my wife should pass away some day, it will be replaced most probably by a comparable machine from HP or Dell.

hth, Christoph
