Almost ready to drop $$ on the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Ultrabook!

Trying to keep it under $1000 though :(


I bought a $300-400 laptop and put a $200 SSD in it. Functionally equivalent to a 1k+ laptop. Highly recommended.


more details.

I hope you have better luck than I did! I told my boss then the HR lady at around noon yesterday. At 12:30pm, as I was walking to the restroom, a lady whose name I do not know ran up to me to give me a hug and tell me how upset she was that I'm leaving. Oh. :roll:


ughhhhh misery. he just needs to not talk for 2 weeks!! i don't have faith in him but it would have been so awkward to not say anything today during this deep conversation and then to drop it on him in a few weeks, so i went for it.


what do you care? I'm honestly glad I don't have to pretend to give a shit anymore to anyone around here


I actually still do give a shit so I don't benefit from people knowing or not knowing in that respect. I'm a mostly private person and would prefer my haters to not send me even more negative vibes. But oh well, it's already done. I'll be surprised if anyone in the building doesn't know by now.

I get this attitude for people who work in fields that may be relevant post-grad. I work in an industry where it is guaranteed I will never come in contact with my co-workers again after earning my JD...it's almost impossible for me to stay focused/care at all about what I do on a daily basis.

Fell asleep in lecture today (again). I don't know what my dear professors are saying anymore.

Is it time to graduate yet?

Keep in mind that you have to take exams on your laptop and if it craps out you're in deep shit soooooo maybe spend a few extra hundred dollars to be on the safe side? :lol: My firm uses the X1 and it's rad as hell.

I'm so desperate to get the hell out of here that I told Michigan I'd LOVE to do summer start if I got off the waitlist. (Which is actually true, but especially appealing since I could just check out for good.)

Ladies I need help on the quitting my job part.

Did you write your letter of resignation before telling your team you are leaving? I need to tell them soon, but I'm scurred.

Ooh which one did you get? I've been meaning to upgrade mine but I keep accidentally spending money on clothes and shoes.

My boss was my recommender and I actually told him in my interview a year ago what I planned on doing. I have quit a job suddenly before, though, and spoke to my boss before handing her the letter. I had it prepared beforehand just to get it all done in one fell swoop.

I know you're scared, but don't be scared! Everyone is replaceable.

Curlietop, I just bought a fancy DSLR, myself! No time for a class, though, so I'm going to have to put it away in my closet for the next 3 years. :P

i didn't / haven't in other jobs, but i believe TCR on this forum is to have it written and bring it with you in case. what i've usually done is had in-person conversations with my team/bosses and then contacted HR via email with an official letter.

Told boss>bigger boss>trickled to bigger boss and biggest boss>was asked to write a letter for HR's records>gave it to biggest boss who gave it to HR

Your summer plans sound amazing!

Just went and told my boss. It's kind of awkward now because we can see each other across the hall. Hope this doesnt end up being a really uncomfortable couple of months
