IBM Thinkpad

What do you think of the IBM Thinkpad series. I'm attaching a list of thier new features that I think make it the best laptop for mobile workers. Any thoughts?

Armed with the Active Protection System—an integrated motion sensor that monitors the system's hard drive to prevent some hard drive crashes when a fall occurs—the ThinkPad can lower support and help desk costs while keeping data safe.

While other vendors look for physical means to shock-protect their hard disks, IBM uses a combination of drives, firmware and software to accomplish a higher level of disk protection.

The T41 weighs 4.5 pounds and is a mere 1 inch thick but can carry as much as 2GB of synchronous dynamic RAM, and enterprises can choose a 20GB, 40GB or 60GB hard drive. For more details and a better explanation of benefits, check out www.ibm.com/thinkpad.

I've got an older model, and a friend has the T41... They are very good. Mine is for work, and until recently, never thought much of them. However, in hindsight, they are durable, not too heavy, and reliable. The key for business is reliability.

I have an R40e (entry level IBM) which does pretty much everything I need it to, and doesn't offer up any surprises. It has no hardware-originated quirks that I can think of. Unusually, R-series isn't great for Linux.

My laptop is an old IBM TP600E, with 160 MB RAM and PII-366 CPU. It works great though! Runs WinXP without too much trouble. If I were to buy a new one today though, I would look for a Dell. Why? Because its cheaper.
