Buying a notebook is still hard
Just a quick note on the Thinkpad X280 I bought earlier this year because I feel I have to follow up on this.
I returned it because for me it was not suited for media consumption. The speakers on the bottom of the device were just too bad, it was not possible for me to watch a YouTube video and understand what has been said without putting headphones on.
Next I might order a Dell XPS 13 (9380) and see if it fits my needs. To be honest: I don't know what else to buy right now. It's hard enough to even get a notebook with US ANSI keyboard layout to begin with.
