    T410, I7-620M, 8 GB RAM, 480 GB SSD - my daily workhorse. Love the keyboard, looks like an antique at coffee shops now.



    ... Am I any closer to finding what I'm looking for?

    I like Lenovo. I have a Lenovo laptop that I bought in 2014 that I still use every so often. The only thing I don't really like about the particular model I have is that at the time, Lenovo was using the trackpads with the buttons as part of the trackpad rather than separate physical buttons, like this:

    I have a T510 with the same specs which gets used a lot, every
    day. Must be 7-'ish years old now and I still love it. Don't
    think I'll ever buy another laptop that isn't a Lenovo.

    It'll be hard, when my T410 dies; I'll end up getting a laptop with an
    island keyboard. The old-school keyboard is the one thing that keeps me
    coming back to the T410. If it would support 16 GB of RAM, I'd keep it forever.

    I think the T420 supports 16.



    ... Do you have access to your previous configuration?
