Let's do some computing...

This page will contain very short reviews of all kinds of hardware I worked on, serving mostly for me to remember the hardware I have had at my disposal!

Lenovo ThinkPad T495s

Oh God, that has been a catastrophe. The great keyboard is there, so is the touchpad and the signature nipple mouse. Despite all that, it is simply unreliable – it overheats so much, with the fan not turning its speed up when needed. The battery life after a couple of months fell below 2 hours. The USB controller is… funky, with Plug and Play failing from time to time on all kinds of Linux distros.

On the plus side, the performance of Ryzen 7 3400U is awesome – as long as you use external peripherals as not to fry your hands and lap. I even created this tiny widget to relieve my organs. I have learnt some GTK in the progress, so that's a plus, I guess?

I will be re-selling this one once I find a suitable replacement, and it is probably the end of buying ThinkPads for me. 3/10.
