Yup, this is one contest I'm going to lose. My oldest laptop would be 1 of 2 that are the same age, both released in early 2020, so take your choice:

Lenovo ThinkPad T14 G1 AMD, Ryzen 7 Pro 4750U, 32GB, 2TB, Vega 7, 1080P 14", Intel AX210
or
Lenovo ThinkPad L14 G1 AMD, Ryzen 5 Pro 4650U, 32GB, 1TB, Vega 6, 1080P 14", Intel AX200

Yeah, not very old.

I looked up the warranty start dates for both, and the T14 is slightly older. I bought it Oct. 2020 . The L14 wasn't purchased until Jan 21, and I think it was 2 months old when I purchased it (technically enough used to get a discount on the price, which is why I bought it, I'm a sucker for a good price on a laptop I've never owned).

Many of my laptops are actually newer than the release date. My Dell Latitude 7370 was made in mid 2018, my 7470/7270s late 2017.

My T14's are generally not a TERRIBLE amount newer than the release dates (especially the Gen3), but they lag it a few months. The rest have mostly been purchased used so it's a crapshoot.

Just donated 8 of my older laptops to the local non-profit as my wife and I just dont use our laptops that much. We tend to be desktop users and Ill be staying in that direction a long with my mini-pcs. Now my oldest laptop is 6th gen Intel.
