Processor and wireless card is going to be more advanced or recent too - I believe the T42's and below have the Banias chip(755 and lower) where as the T43 has the new Sonoma which has a faster FSB @ 533 compared to the previous Banias at 400. I thought T41's were discontinued, correct me if Im wrong, so where are you looking to pick one up? Build quality- you can't go wrong with either model... just comes down to which has the more modern stuff.

The T41's video card is probably quite outdated as well, considering T42's already ship with rather old Radeon 7500's. Other than that, their sizes and appearance should be the same for all T4x models.
