ksatrya is a first generation Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon. I've had it since November 2019 and it is my daily driver.

the machine itself during surgery desktop environment



As my daily driver, this machine continually destroys all tasks in its path; Performance with the OS and environment listed above are excellent, even with a bunch of Docker containers and Node instances eating up RAM and CPU for React/microservices development or some VMs running. On any given day it may or may not be hooked up to an external monitor, but invariably will be used with my Kinesis Freestyle Pro keyboard and an optical mouse if I'm at home. It has a fresh aftermarket battery for when I want to take it to the coffee shop for a change of pace or need to travel for whatever reason.
