Youtubers who spike prices of old hardware should jump off a cliff, people out here thinking their shitty thinkpad that their dog pissed on is worth $500


im so fucking mad i didnt buy an x60 before covid hit


the market speaks
if people wanna pay a premium for more privacy compatible hardware, then so be it


found the guy trying to sell thinkpads to OP for $500


Great form factor but it is severely underpowered

You implicitly acknowledge that markets do not operate according to human need.


Fuck your markets


I mean, it is kinda worth it considering that every processor made after 2008 has a backdoor built into it.


2006 for intel actually


2012 for AMD actually.


There's lots of cheap hardware from that vintage that's not a thinkpad. I don't get the x60 hype. The only reason you might want a thinkpad is if the OS is hardware specific, like >>/tech/res/8691.html


I hate it


You will pay 400$ + tax +tip for a 15 year old laptop with a broken screen and no keyboard and you WILL like it.


out of the loop here, what do youtubers have to do with hardware prices?

Telling people to rush out and buy old Thinkpads, so the second hand market for Thinkpads has soared.


I mean it is the only system compatible with libreboot outside of a small margin of other choices.


looks like buying old thinkpads, flashing libreboot and installing linux-libre might be a decent way to make money and expand my botnet by preloading them with backdoors


So how the fuck do you flash the bios then? I hear ypu have to connect hardware by pin to do it.


I work with electronics fam. but it's also not necessary for all machines, only if you brick the BIOS or the CPU is somehow prevented from writing to it. libreboot.org has the deets on this


Well I just mention it because you raise an interesting point that you can only trust YOURSELF to do shit like this with your machines no one else.


Are you that same retroomer who is always sperging out on /g/
