IBM Thinkpad T40 review at Ars
Posted on: 12/16/2003 03:15 PM

Sure, we're SMP geeks but I'd be willing to bet a lot of us have laptops as well. As such, I thought I'd let you all know that Arstechnica has posted a review of IBM's sultry Thinkpad T40.
Usually the first remark you hear about the T40 is that it is built like a tank. Indeed, the rumors are true. While it is not completely indestructible, I have no fears about my T40 getting damaged in any minor calamity. While the lid gives a little when twisted, its magnesium alloy construction makes it nowhere near as malleable as the plastic on most laptops. The lid is attached to the base with two large metal hinges, and it would take a lot to break them off. The lid is also designed so its edges come around the base a little when it is closed. This provides a little more assurance against injury when you throw it in your bag.
If you're in the market for a new laptop, you may want to check the Thinkpad T40 out.
