    I currently have an X1 Carbon (gen3) and looking for something similar in size that will hold up to 32GB RAM. The T470 seems like a decent contender, any others to consider?

    Does anyone other than Apple still make white laptops?

    edit: Lenovo sells a Yoga 720 13" starting at $799 (607 quid), so start looking for refurbished, smaller screens, or raise your budget.
    LG Does and they're very good too, especially the cheap models, but I'm not sure about their availability outside South Korea ._.

    For the price that cant really be beaten. May have to purchase one in a month or so for work stuffs. Perfect really for basic functionality. Have some +rep
    I keep saying grade A HP 2570P off eBay for £200 and it'll last about 50 years longer than that Chinese piece of derp.

    Huh, that chinese thing is a straight up 100% exact copy of the LG laptops i mentioned earlier actually.

    Not that there can be that much design difference in a basic thin laptop but really. ._.

    That HP is from the EliteBook line, which means ThinkPad (before Lenovo) durability levels. Screen is shit but the CPU I got for £200 is a quad core i7, which is arguably faster than any low voltage crap. Came with Windows 7 Pro and free 10 upgrade. Battery lasts four-five hours as well.

    I also meant for you, not for him. Whomever wants a white laptop deserves whatever is coming to them

    a 1080p IPS panel for $250 is pretty great, that's actually kinda tempting if I didn't already have my Thinkpad, the only thing I don't like about the pad is the garbage display

    HP refurbs are actually v. good value for money normally. Same with Dell. Their business class shit is well built.

    Less than £200, cant argue wit that.

    You can all laugh at me when i have a electrical house fire in the coming months!
    Will report back on how it handles.
    I own a chuwi tablet that I use every now and then for light coding (Win10) or watching media when traveling (android). It's ok for the laughable price, got a nicer one for my dad that doubles down as mini laptop as well (detachable keyboard). He is really happy as well.

    I must admit though, that I don't charge it when I'm not at home this reminds me I should get some home insurance for fire and shit

    Dunno if I updated what I got but I picked up a Lenovo Yoga 510 something or other and it''s been perfect so far after I removed all the bloatware.

    I'm a bit suspicious of the hinges getting knackered but the build quality has surprised me so far.
