>home is dual fuel heat pump/natural gas furnace, natural gas kicks in when temperature outside is below 40
>overall electricity/gas bills breddy low
>think I can do better by keeping the house in the low 50's, just enough to keep pipes from freezing and condensation out
>use a small space heater to heat ONLY my small battlestation to a cozy temp
>overall utility bills skyrocket following month despite the previous month being just slightly warmer

Is there something just totally wrong here or can it really cost less to keep the entire house warm? How can a space heater be that inefficient compared to big furnace? My battlestation is small and I just keep it on the low setting all the time which uses 800 watts according to my kill-a-watt.

BTW mods fuck off, HVAC is technology.

If you're looking for purchase advice, state your budget and requirements (e.g. size and performance).
>>Don't buy anything OTHER THAN IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad T, X, and W/P Series if you want the Real Business Experience™
>>Other business laptops are also welcome in /tpg/ (Dell Latitude/Precision, HP EliteBook/ZBook).

Recommended IBM models:
>600 series, IPS T4x or 755 series
Recommended modern models:
>X220 - 12", 768p, cheap and light
>T420 - 14", 900p, widely available, socketed CPU, Ivy Bridge installable w/ Coreboot
>W520 - 15", 1080p, Desktop Replacement, 32GB RAM on quadcore models, USB 3.0
>T440p, T540p, W540 - last ThinkPads to have replaceable CPUs, IPS displays available, chiclet
>P series - reminiscent to old build quality, top-of-the-line specs, better than most current mobile workstations, but very expensive.

Why ThinkPad?
>Used machines are plentiful and cheap
>Excellent keyboards - tactile feel and quiet
>Great durability: chassis uses a magnesium rollcage for structural integrity, with high quality plastic body panels
>Utilitarian design: e.g. indicator LEDs, 7 row keyboard layout on older models
>Docking stations that easily turns your laptop into a desktop
>Easy to repair (most models), upgrade & maintain thanks to readily available service manuals for every model, spare parts easy & cheap to obtain
>The best TrackPoint, great for those who type a lot or hate swiping their fingers all over a touchpad
>Excellent GNU/Linux & *BSD support
