I know that gamers are a very "determined" bunch of folks - admittedly I am one of those as well - and quite often there are very personal and/or specific reasons for what tools we adopt.

At the moment my arsenal looks as follows:


  • Lenovo Legion T530
    • RTX 2060, i7-9700 and 64Gb ram
    • Updated CPU cooler to a Noctua NH-L9x65
    • Updated case fans to Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM

  • Lenovo ThinkPad P51 Signature Edition
    • i7-7700HQ, 32Gb ram
    • Docked with a ThinkVision 24" monitor

  • Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2
    • 16Gb ram, GTX 1650

  • Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 1
  • Lenovo ThinkPad P50
    • 64Gb Ram, Xeon cpu


These are my daily drivers, both for work, fun, travel and entertainment...

For work then the P51, P50, X1Y and X1X are does it for me with regards to what i do for a living... the X1Y is my perfect mobile information worker tool that's brilliant for using when i'm also doing public presentations.

The Legion T530 is a combined work horse and fun-time gaming setup - it's neither ground breaking, nor top of the line, but I prefer to find a sweet spot for what I invest in. So, the T530 hit that easily.

​​​​​​​So, that's my current list (got more but they're not daily drivers).. what's yours?
