    Default What Kind of Laptop Do BB Users Use?

    I've always wondered since BB users are people who get things done, so I figured most BB users would own Thinkpads like me

    List what you have, specs would be good to know to, since we're all tech geeks here


    Personally,

    IBM Thinkpad T60
    - 80GB HD
    - CoreDuo 2.0GHz
    - 2GB RAM
    - 4:3 screen anti glare
    - Windows 7 Ultimate
    - 6 cell battery


    Lenovo Thinkpad X220
    - i5 3120 3.GHz
    - 8GB RAM 1333mhz
    - 120GB Kingston HyperX SSD (~350MBps read/write in real world use)
    - 1368x768 IPS anti glare screen (can't stand glossy/vibrant displays)
    - Windows 7 Ultimate
    - Fingerprint reader
    - 9cell battery


    Oh and I must add that using the red dot TrackPoint in the middle of the keyboard is just as much an addiction as a BlackBerry itself.

    And if we're talking keyboards... ThinkPad keyboards are to laptops what the Bold 9900 is to cell phones...

    HP Mini with Beats Audio, small, slim, long lasting battery, bright screen and some great sound out of it. Pretty basic by modern standards but I love it.

    Using a brand new Sony laptop with Windows 8 right now. Love the lighted keyboard and pinch to zoom on the touchpad is great, but I find myself missing my old Win7 desktop view too often and switching back from the Windows 8 Tiles view formerly known as Windows 8 Metro or whatever.

    None.
    Being in construction and working in the field, I need something portable (pocketable) to manage data, that's why I was an early adopter of BlackBerry (the 7290).

    My laptop was stolen a week after I bought my PlayBook, and I haven't felt the need to replace it. My desktop kicks a$$, though, running Linux for the bulk of my work and Windows 7 for specialized software (such as BB Desktop Manager).

    An older Thinkpad T420 and a newer Thinkpad E420. Duel boot win 7 and Linux Mint "cinnamon". Mint 14 is great btw.

    Love the durability and the keyboard of thinkpads, they really are a great BB compliment.

    Macbook 13". The Thinkpads and Dell have such poor build quality, and they run Windows. MacOSX is so much better. It's pretty and it's just so magical.
    This would start a whole new war
    Through the Years :2001 Ericsson T29s> Sony Z5> Sony Z7> SE Z600>Moto A760> RAZR V3>Razr V3i>BB 8800>BB 9500 >BB 9800>Bold 9900..RIM Returns with a bang

    Life was much simpler when Apple and Blackberry were just fruits

    My Bold 9900 has saved me several times when on the road or if VRBO Beach rental had no Wi-Fi. BB 9900 provides tethered connectivity for laptop to open large commerial leases, sales contracts, plats or plans for review and mark-up. The perfect combination for connectivity and getting stuff done anywhere.
    I sync BB contacts, calendar, tasks and memos with (defined group) in Act! on laptop using Companionlink. All info and history syncs both ways.

    Still have my trusty HP Pavilion dv2000 from 2007
    AMD processor
    2GB RAM
    120GB Hard Drive
    Shipped with Vista, now has Windows 7

    I am looking to purchase another one soon. Considered going Mac, but spec wise, I cant justify spending so much money.
