Linus has the worst car among the LTT staff?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So might have already been posted. But did anyone notice that Linus basically has the worst car in the company he owns.

 

Now let me be clear, if you own a company it doesn't mean you're ultra rich or whatever.

 

From the videos, Brandon drives a BMW either an X1 or X3 and Luke drives an Acura TSX that is basically the European Honda Accord. Yet Linus drives a Honda Civic which looks like cats sleep in it and from what I can tell it's from early 2000's. Don't get me wrong I love Honda cars I personally have the (European) Civic Sport from 2011. But seriously how?

 

So just a thought. Let me know what you think about this...

Everyone has different priorities. Also as far as I know Linus is the only one with a family and that is probably where all of his money goes and the company so the rest of the staff might have more money for their pleasures like cars. At least that is my assumption.

He rather has nice PCs or toys for his children than some stupid car

Wrong, Luke drive an Acura TL. I have a 2009 Acura TSX myself, it's a great car.

 

And yes, Linus drives a 2003 Honda Civic with a manual transmission that has been beat to hell and back. That car is living proof of the reliability and abuse tolerance of Hondas.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

He's too lazy to actually get a new one. I talked with him personally on Twitter about this. Can't be bothered to save up for a new one outright, or set up financing.

not everyone feels the need to drive expensive or high performance cars (I'm not one to talk being a car nut myself) but some people just want simple reliable transportation, which i don't fault them for, everyone can have a hobby and interests, cars may not be one of theirs

Not Hondas as a whole tbh, if it had an automatic R.I.P

Sorry. I didn't do the homework on Acuras lately or ever for that matter.

Your priorities shift when you have your own company. (if they haven't already)

Every spare penny usually goes back into the company because you hope that it will pay off more later.
