Jeffreys point... ah, Eastie...
Epp's link seems to be the best value for my closet spec match. Ill just get a faster Hd and use the 80 as a separate drive with an enclosure, upgrade the RAM and viola.
Ill be sure to give that chic a call tomorrow..
edit: oh yea, that link's not working amigo... at least not for me
i lived for about 3yrs close to where warner bros filmed mistec river with sean penn, on border st, right around the corner in front of the gas station and also i lived on bennington st orient heights to be exact right infront of the good looking but suckyass for swimming beach... and yes all those places you mentioned i used to visit, especially the lotto store for my pop's scratch tickets hehe, i loved going to this pizzeria that was between the new walmart and the east boston savings bank for a red sox game night, i forgot all those streets and places names... so fujitsufreak what town are you from? how come you know so much of eastie?
viva Boston Red Sox!
look fujitsufreak i got you the links
-if you're currently a student and you can prove it with a student id, student number or something like that then take this deal as a higher education student:https://www-03.ibm.com/lenovo/shop/p...sh_cookie=true
-if you're not currently enrolled in an academic institution but still have old proof that you were once then take this deal as a student/alumni:https://www-03.ibm.com/lenovo/shop/p...sh_cookie=true
remember to put the model number you want in the right top corner of the page "quick buy box"... the differences between the 2 deparments (higher education and student/alumni) i dont know but basicly in money terms sometimes prices differ from each department, for instance in my case new jersey higher education had the 266872u for 1950 and student/alumni had it for 2095 plus each one offered different free or discounted special options for that particular model, but in your case for MA higher and alumni both have the same shit and no good free special options at all (if i was you i would wait untill good offers come like free 512 ram valued at $150 for ibm)...
ok now what else could you possibly need to know???
-i got you the websales team number (which is not that normal to be known, because lets say there was this blowout deal but only on the ibm website then mostly no ibm phone sales team rep would honor that deal but only the websales team, trust me its based on my experience of tons of calls)
-i gave you the direct extension number of my fav sales chick
-i got you good info about the 266872u and its bang for the buck
-i got you the friggin links for how to get these good deals
-i constanly give you personal advice and product recommendetions
thou im not any type of sales rep or whatever of that sort i wish you AMIGO and all to have a great experience with a thinkpad!
IM JUST SO HAPPY WITH MINE THAT IN A WAY I TRY TO SHARE THAT WITH YOU GUYS MY VIRTUAL FRIENDS, YOU ALL ROCK!
now back to fujitsufreak dude if you dont get a thinkpad after my research efforts and advice ill go back to MA just to kick your fujitsuan ass,
just kiddin! buddy i dont think there is anything else for you to know about how magnificient and worth an ibm thinkpad purchase could be.
good luck and dont be bothering us with those dump questions anymore
you now know more than enough to make the best computer investment of your lived life, hey got ya just kiddin again
ps: a quick bang for the buck sample, sony sells the cpu equipped in the 266872u t43 for about $500 and almost every company dont offer 3 years warranty as standard like ibm does (i know its included in the price of the system but still alot cheaper than adding it as extra configuration to those systems that dont)
edit: the fan its quiet if you use your thinkpad in the default low power settings (that doesnt mean the computer will run slow, this babe takes/runs anything you throw at it like all microsoft office stuff in a snap) but i know this is fixable due bios/firmware updates and if it still to much of an issue you have plenty of warranty that covers all that shit in future times.
