Personal purchase - edugeek's opinion needed
Hi guys, your advice is required.
I am purchasing a used laptop (want to minimise cost) and have narrowed to two models:
Lenovo ThinkPad T60
T2400 Intel Core Duo 1.83GHz
60GB Hard Drive
IBM ThinkPad T43
40GB Hard Drive
1GB RAM Memory
Built In WiFi
ATI MOBILITY RADEON X300
As you can see both are Thinkpads, but with slightly different specs, my gut feeling is to go with the T43 as the T60 is actually a Lenovo machine. I have had a T43 in the past (work issued) and a Lenovo (but not T60) and I noticed a hell of a difference in build quality.
I appreciate the T43 has more RAM which has got to be a good thing but I'm not sure how much difference the processor will make, the fact that the T60 is Dual Core and the T43 isnt.
I am not worried about size of hard drive at all. I am leaning towards the T43 but am happy to take on board your views as I am sure many of you have bought various laptops over the years. Also the price will not affect my decision, given the small difference.
Cheers for your help in advance.
