IBM ThinkPad T42 Specs


Processor: Pentium M (1.7 GHz)

Apparently it does... I'll have a look under the cover this weekend to see how the sardines are packaged.. ;)

Pretty nice machine, I imagine they have it well displaced..

yea mi parents say IBM makes pretty hard laptops

they may be a lil' bit thicker but to sony vaios u can close the lid a bit harder and it wouldn't work.

I hear apple's powerbook got ran over by a truck but it still works!
with an external monitor since it got broken.

and ipod droped in fire but still working when they pick it up

Well..... If it ever gets run over by a Truck... I'll let ya know how it turns out.. ;)

I dunno... She's rather excited about it... I'm a Desktop kinda fella I guess, because it's just a toy to me.. LOL!! I won't even use it without hooking it up to my monitor and mouse.. :D :rolleyes:

Nice of her work to get it for her though.. Expensive Touch..She loves it. B)
