FWIW, don't get anything older than 8th gen i5 CPU. That's when Intel moved from 2 cores to 4 cores.

I'd rather get a T450s for <$200 or a T480 or newer for the quad core. The t460/470 is an awkward gen.

Agreed, even my i7-6600u feels sluggish in my 13 inch spectre. Love my new flex 14 i5 8th gen.

A 6th gen i5 for $500?

You can find 10th gen i5 or i7 for less.

That's only for the U-series CPUs.

Please find a ThinkPad T-series with a 10th gen i5/i7 for anywhere near this price, and I'll buy it.

Please tell me how buying a $500 laptop that's half of the speed of current gen laptops ever makes sense, even if it's a Thinkpad T series. I'm a big thinkpad fan too, but it's just time to move on from 6th gen processors.

Because processing speed isn't everything to all people. Everyone has different use cases and priorities. For someone who prioritizes build quality, longevity, and upgradeability, there isn't much out there for $500 better than this. I would probably recommend an E-series with an 8th gen over this, but the 6300U isn't all that slow.

These are business laptops. They are designed for using Microsoft office and some web browsing and basic stuff. Durability, keyboard quality, and pointing device quality probably most important. Once you're used to a ThinkPad trackpoint as your primary pointing device it is very hard to change to anything else. Many might not notice it but the ThinkPad keyboards have just the right amount of pressure, a good amount of travel and proper key curve to make using one of these things 4 hours a better experience. I have a t460s and for office stuff it's speed is fine. I am sure I am only using a fraction of the CPU. Users of business apps I'm more likely to notice the hard drive speed. The biggest issue with this series is that the full HD IPS displays are not very bright.

Personally I would rather not have the fastest CPU on the planet in my laptop in order to save battery life. I also find it annoying when the fan keeps coming on.

Anyone who knows the business laptop market will realize that this is a good deal.

Previous FP deal still active. $450 for 10th gen Core i7 1065G7 processor with faster ram etc. Probably almost 3x as fast overall.

Many deals like this if you scroll the forums. I just wouldn't pay $500 for a 6th gen i5 no matter how premium it is.
