T40 vs. D600
Is the T40 worth an $82 premium over the D600, comparably equipped? About
$200 over the D500....
(Okay, the D600 has a CD-RW, which I don't really care about, and a media bay
battery, which I think it needs to match the T40's base battery life. But the
T40's 256MB of RAM is in one stick, to two for the D600. Hmm... and the Dell
has a longer base warranty; 3 years vs. 1.)
You might want to check your specs again - I've never seen a T40 with less than
a 3 year warranty.....
One other comment I have heard is that the wrist rest on the right side of th...D600, D800, T30, or T40?
My company will buy a laptop for me. It will be the only computer I have
in the office. Most time I will use it as a desktop through external
Sometime I will bring it home. The choices are:
Dell D600, D800, Thinkpad T30, T40.
Which one should I choose, in terms of performance, quality, and
convenience (ease of setup as a desktop)?
I am concern about the display of D800. The resulotion is too high for
the 15'' LCD. Currently my first choice is T40, but the price may be
beyond the budget. Then which can be the second choice?
Thanks in advance.
D600. Not too big, ...T40 batteries
Hi! I have an extra battery for my IBM Thinkpad T40 (an ultraslim one
for the CD ROM bay). The two batteries work fine. The system always
used the ultrabay one first, and then the main battery.
Does anybody know a way of switching the order for that ? I want the
main battery to be used first, and then the other.
In that way, the cycle count for them will be rather even, and the
life of both batteries will be equivalent.
I haven't a chance to look anything up yet but the display on my T40 is
flickering on and off, mostly off, when I move the lid. Is it possible that
this is an easy fix? I.e. just resecuring the display cable? In any case,
I bought this used, does anyone have any good links for instructions on
dismantling a T40?

"Marc Auslander" <marcslists@optonlin...Repartition T40
Im getting a new T40 in about a week and was planning on
repartitioning the single 40GB disk that comes with it. I read from
these newsgroups that there is some preinstalled IBM software that
gets stored in the last few cylinders of the harddrive.
If i reformat the whole disk, Im going to lose all that information.
How do i repartition the drive without losing the last few cylinders
where the IBM stuff is stored? Basically id like to have 2 partitions,
one for applications and one for data.
Thanks for any help
I use PartitionMagic v7.01.
Might I recommend that you partition th...Upgrading T40
Just a lazy sort of post, but I bought a bottom of the range T40 last
summer, and was wondering just how much I could upgrade it...
Memory to 2GB easy enough.
Harddrive to whatever the maximum is.
Ultrabay to whenever the DVDRW comes out
Graphics card - no?
CPU? can I just swap my 1.3GHZ centrino for a 1.7GHZ?
Does anyone know if T40s are bluetooth upgradeable?
I have 'b' wireless - is it possible to upgrade to 'b/g'?
How about 2100 RAM to 2600?
Screen? Might want a higher res screen in the future.
Hmmm, seems about it.
If anyone else knows what else is upgradeable or wheth...T40 update
Does anyone have any information on when IBM is going to update the
T40. I specificaly want to know when it will get a dvd burner (one
that fits in the slim drive), when it will get a better graphics card,
and when IBM will be doing a general refresh (T41?).
and I would like to know when they will have a model with a higher
resolution screen but at a reasonable price. The only reason why I'm not
getting the T40 is because in order to get the higher resolution I have to
pay a lot more.

So I am almost convinced Thinkpad T40 is the one I want.

My question is, what is the difference in buying direct from IBM and one of
many "online" stores?
I am not concerned about getting the cheapest price, but I don't want to
overpay either since I am paying for the system out of my own pocket.
The main difference is price.
I bought my T40 (237392u) from www.kaanza.com and I was extremely pleased with
their service. Shipped the same day and you can even ask for discount if you ...Creative
