I just bought a... (non clothing item) - Page 291

^Same. Is there an app for it so you can change it on the go?
post #4352 of 4567
Yep it has an IOS app (not sure about android) and you can also access it from their website to adjust it while you're not home. I was coming from a very bare bones thermostat that came with my condo when I bought it (digital). The install was ridiculously easy, the nest website has a page that lets you easily figure out if your current setup is compatible.

My six year old laptop effectively died a few weeks ago. So I ordered a Lenovo U410 ultrabook which I have been playing with for the past couple of hours. Feels awesome to have a light as hell and recent laptop.

I was looking at these new Lenovo ultrabooks, with the distinct possibility of buying one very soon. They seem very nice. Thing is I don't need an optical drive in a laptop, I've got no CDs, DVDs, EVDs or CBHDs, plus with an SSD should make for a solid and robust lightweight travel laptop.

How robust are they?
If you really focus on robustness, I think you better choose a T-Series (14" probably).

The u410 I have doesn't have an optical drive. I bought an external DVD writer for like $30

Will have a look at the T series this week in the local Lenovo shop. Basically I need a fairly lightweight, compact but sturdy machine I can take from classroom to classroom, and easily put in my travel bag and carry-on for when going to Beijing and so-on.

Get a T-Series then. It's the most robust one. By far. Great finishing, very sturdy. If you want the light version (costs a little extra, obviously), make sure it has a "s" behind its name. E.g. T420s/T430s as opposed to T420/T430.

And make sure it really is a Lenovo shop. happy.gif

My new T530 just got shipped today after my 4 year-old Dell died two weeks ago. I hope it will be sturdier... The Dell felt like it had been glued together by a preschooler.

The Lenovo Stores around here really are the real deal(authorised dealers), I'm sure of that. Unlike the Apple Stores biggrin.gif

Just about everyone in my school has a Lenovo laptop. Nobody ever got fired for buying IBM...sorry Lenovo. smile.gif

Yep. The funny thing is that there are even lots of Apple stores that look 100% legit and even the employees think they work in an authentic store. Problem is, they don't. But you probably knew that before.

@gld: I'm pretty sure.

That's a big machine!

I'm anxiously awaiting my work laptop (T400) being replaced; I opted for an X230 since I don't need the optical drive when away from the docking bay and it should travel way easier...I've got 2 monitors on my desk so the laptop's screen isn't an issue for daily use.

It's pretty much for home use only, very very little travel. If any.

New keyboard for my netbook. The old one was flakey (had to bend it back and forth every once and a while to get it to work right) and I discovered that prices have fallen so far that I could get a new one for $10 shipped on ebay.

Was going to pick up a new battery for $20 since those prices have also fallen but figured I would wait until the end of the quarter...I've gotten a bunch of "ebay bucks" this quarter but they only give you 30 days to use them and thus they always go to waste. This time I will use them!

Next I just have to buy a cheap SSD and squeeze another few years out of this thing smile.gif
