Upgraded my video card to a  XFX - AMD Radeon RX 480 8 GB GDDR5. I like how you can change the fans out so you can install a fan that lights up to a different color (sold separately.)

 

I ordered a set of blue fans since the stock white fans clash with the blue case fans I have in my PC.

Found my monitor that I bought on Newegg a year ago is on sale around $400 off its original price. Couldn't pass up on that so I ordered it and I'll have dual monitors in a couple of days.

Impulse-bought a Lenovo Thinkpad T460s to replace my T440s. The new machine is a base model i5 compared to the older one which was a i7 (still dual-core) Haswell, so the final performance would probably end up fairly similar. Other specs are the same - the usual 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM, 1080p IPS screen, which is all that matters. I dropped the touchscreen which turned out to be more hindrance than help, and the backlit keyboard which I used maybe once a year.

 

So really there was no reason for me to do this changeover, but the price was irresistable: $1000AUD for the new machine when I paid well over double that for the older one originally. The new one is about 20% lighter at ~1.35kg (3 pounds) which is nice but just icing on the cake. Old machine goes to my parents who were using my old Core 2 Duo Dell with an almost completely dead battery as a spare machine.

Weird. The Lenovo Thinkpad T460S (1080p, 8GB RAM, Core i5, 256GB SSD) is our company's current standard laptop model. It's clumsy, ugly and soulless.

 

I would never have guessed someone would actually buy one of them voluntarily.

Those are the exact traits I look for in a laptop. :p It's a business machine not concerned with being "sexy" but rather having things like the best keyboard available on a laptop, good connectivity options, being tough as nails, etc.

When I see that I read good value. Paying extra for branding is silly after all ?
