Okay, I haven't been following SSD sizes, 2TB is actually good, but expensive though. And the extra cost provides me with no benefit. The extra IOPS and throughput wouldn't get used. Better I save my money with a 2TB HDD and spend the remainder on food and shelter.

To me, it does not make sense to buy a high-end / top-of-the-line laptop and expect it to last over a decade. Tech is just evolving too rapidly.

in fact that quote was even in your post (as you replied to rugxulo about it) so obviously was the context. Besides this whole thread is about buying laptops isn't it? Wink

So, you are putting words in my mouth for what I said in another post. Great!

Did I even mention that the lifespan of such a laptop was 2 years?

It is implied by the 2 year time span for the comparison CPUs you mentioned. Suggesting it is far enough "evolved" to be worthy of serious consideration for upgrading.

Your twisted implication is simply stunning -- I am truly impressed.

That "thing" is called "quantum fluctuation". Unfortunately, we cannot extract energy from such a phenomenon (yet).

You weren't clear about the context, because to me the context seemed to be about purchasing "cheap laptops" often due to the "fast evolution", so I just explained why I thought that. Wink

Alright, So we got it wrong, no big deal, we are human and make mistakes. Could you please be kind enough to tell us the intended meaning(s) then?

Is there something special about Core 2 Duo? Why all the TET laptops use them? Do they lack some new backdoors that the Core i* line has?

I believe that most of the TET laptops are refurbished IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad laptops, which happen to use Core 2 Duo processors.

I'm going to stroll in with the devils card. Twisted Evil

Every macbook I've had my hands on has ran linux at 100% compatibility and beautifully, It's actually quite insane how well Linux works on a mac... LOL

Just pick up a 2010 model with a core2duo for like $200 and slap a new SSD in it... Maybe upgrade that DD3, most are sitting with 2GB and many models from that time frame can support 4 or 8GB depending if it's a macbook or macbook pro (macbook pros were also available with nVidia/Radeon graphics if that matters to you although I'd avoid the pre-2014 radeon models as those had issues with the GPU malfunctioning(they came unsoldered from the board)).
