@jonw I carry 3x smaller 256GB SSD with that laptop .. one has windows / freebsd /linux

All ready to go and configured with all the apps needed at any moment

Whatever hits me on the road Im ready to respond :)

also i always keep a VM powered on at home when travelling so I can RDP or SSH back ,,home" and access anything I might need on my internal network just in case

@jonw without photos its just words :)

I have my X220 the oldest I own with a terrible trackpad which stopped working ( maybe because of the BIOS hack flashed?) but anyways it works like a charm

I can swap ssd easily in an out to run Linux OR BSD in a matter of seconds

Laptops of today I have to remove 20 screws even sometimes torx to switch SSD/HDD and most of the time it doesnt worth the hassle

This is as quick as it was just modular nearly

Running an early model ThinkPad is like driving a VW Beetle. It doesn't have the best stuff in it, but it turns heads.
