A girl saw me using my T60(1) and started laughing at me.

She said "Wow, how old is that laptop? That thing looks ancient!" and when I answered honestly (14 years, the T60/61 came out in May 2007) she snickered at me and said "can't you afford a nice macbook? That's so sad, nobody should have to use a laptop that old! That's older than my little brother!".

In my experience the T60 looks too modern to get glares, you need the thiccness of the older laptops before even the normies know you are rocking a retro laptop.

I think that's actually a pretty good design. I mean the laptop-body extending further back than the screen hinge. I bet the keyboard has nothing underneath and can lie flat on the table surface, which means no flex and no heat where you touch the device. The back sections has a lot of room for vents and IO ports.

If you modernized this design to work with current technology and make it just a little bit slimmer and a bit more aesthetically pleasing, it could be a good workhorse labtop.

You are looking at late 80's laptop tech so since the rear is filled with the power supply so the daughter board is under the keyboard. Yet you don't need that much space for the power supply today.

Running simple and light web pages on a 386sx is possible (though not a pleasant experience), video playback is out of the question.

You could probably make a custom laptop like that if you were a little handy. People make all kinds of cool custom portable playstation gamecube/snes/etc systems.

Clip on track pad but the Toshiba T series was before the business world took Windows seriously, back then the people that could afford these machines only wanted to run Lotus 1-2-3 and Word Perfect for Dos.

A girl saw me using my T60(1) and started laughing gently.

She said "Wow, how old is that laptop? That thing looks ancient!" and when I answered honestly (14 years, the T60/61 came out in May 2007) she looked amazed at me and said "so old and it is still running? That's so cool, nobody should have to buy a new laptop every 2years! That's older than my little brother!".

And then we fucked
