It's a nice machine. Too bad it arrived broke. The screen lid's latch is DOA. When I push the release lever to the right it doesn't spring back. Also, the clips on the left of the screen do not release when the lever is pushed. I have to release it by sliding a credit card under the screen lid. Blah. Other than that, it's a great machine. 14" widescreen wxga+ screen, Core 2 Duo T9300 2.5 ghz 6 mb cache, 3 gigs of RAM, nvidia quadro 140NVS graphics, 100 gb 7200 rpm hdd, 6 cell battery, bluetooth. Not to mention it has the typical ruggedness and strength the Thinkpad legacy is known for. I called IBM and they said they will send me a box to send it out for repair. They claim I will get the box tomorrow (even though I just got the laptop today). They said I should receive the fixed laptop by wednesday. I am skeptical. Anyway, it was kinda dissappointing to waiting for 4 weeks for the laptop to be shipping and delivered only to get one with a broken screen lid, but whatever.
