Subtitles will be on all of my videos soon. Just need to take time to build them.
@art Very rarely do I come across a video where I agree with everything 100%, and then some
I'm planning to retrofit mine with a spare x220 keyboard, only because I really like that feel. I got mine on eBay too. It's so far been able to handle kdenlive and openshot just fine, which are pretty much the only resource intensive programs I use. I disabled the touchpad and only use the pointing stick and it's been very easy going
This was a fun video. Thanks for sharing! 😊
@cypnk Hm… You’re making me wonder what I am going to do. I bought a X240, but couldn’t stand the lack of specific buttons to go with the trackpoing and was planing to buy a X230 instead, although I noticed this is a new kind of keyboard compared to my current X200, it did not felt bad on the X240, but I am not sure how it feels on a more intensive use. I would be very interested to know how it goes if you do that keyboard switch! @art
@arcans I've used both and the x240 does feel a bit more strange to use at first, but eventually, I got used to it. But I still prefer the x220. Unfortunately, the only keyboard transplant method I found is from the x220 to the x230 :
I don't know when I'll have the time to switch (will need lots of coffee encouragement before I start :P)
@cypnk Thanks for the link!
Yeah, not exactly trivial, I will keep that in mind.
The keyboard was not a big problem with the X240. Different feeling of course, but I haven’t used it enough to see if the 6 row instead of 7 is a problem for me. Overall, I think I can get used to it as I am used to switch keyboard even at work, and I used a 6-row keyboard on a desktop in the past.
The buttons integrated to the touchpad were the real deal-breaker for me on the X240.
@art I don't have a PeerTube account (yet) so I'll just have to send you my comment here...
Nice informative video! Good editing and polish too... And of course I'm looking at ThinkPads on eBay now :P
(I'm a sucker for that 220 style mech keyboard so I don't know that I'd go with that exact model personally)
@karyl @art hey did you know that if you paste the link to video (https://peertube.mastodon.host/videos/watch/7fd6ac9e-e95d-4047-aa5c-9001040bb4a3) in the search on mastodon - you can reply to that "toot" and your comment will appear on #PeerTube?
@art great video Art, really enjoyed that. +1 for the ThinkPad here. I was recommended a ThinkPad by @popey a few months ago, I picked up an x1 Carbon for a little over £300. By far the best laptop I've ever owned, and the linux support is perfect.
I'd love an XPS 13, but why pay ~2k when I can get such a fantastic machine that meets my needs for a fraction of the cost.
@art I have the X220, typing on it right now, and it's great. I've had it for a few years and it's never missed a beat.
Mine came with the docking station, so at home I have it plugged into my nice big monitor and mechanical keyboard and you wouldn't know you weren't using a desktop - but you can pull it off the dock, take it wherever and all your configuration and files are still there.
