Wont shipping cost make it even more expensive than local units?

Some us electronics only come with a 120v power supply that is incompatible here.

I am also considering between a used ThinkPad, cheap Chinese brand laptop.

Maybe I should just get a dell developer edition laptop with a Linux distro preinstalled.

Power supply was 100-240v that's not an issue.
Cause bought mine from eBay in US before.
Shipping cost more or less is around 100-180 SGD.
Is depend on unit cost.

Dell was good, but keyboard not as good than Thinkpads.

refurbed Thinkpads from overseas are not a bad choice actually. Just take note of the condition, etc...

X230 modded with thinner bezels to accommodate 13.3" screen. There is no official X330.

The x330 mod



But do note that USB suspend (need to disable) on Windows 10 for Ivybridge and earlier notebooks might be broken after Windows 10 1151, think its still not fixed.

The side effect is your USB removable devices won't resume after suspend for the bug unless unplug and replug.

Mod X330 screen on X230 body right.
The thing is how long can last?

Even today T460s were cheaper already.

Until the CPU dies

I really like the ergonomics of carrying it by the display lid and protruding battery
