    Hi.

    Do consider Toshiba or IBM ... they're worth paying the premium!

    What's the difference between T43 and T43p??

    I'd strongly recommend the T43 if you have the cast. Worth every cent of your investment...

    I seconded to Fujitsu. My last Fujitsu laptop of 3 years never let me know. I'm using a Fujitsul laptop (1+yrs now) for personal use. My employer "gave" all employees Fujitsu laptops for work. However, I guess one have to pay a premium for these laptops. And it's very important to buy extended warranty becos no matter how "branded" the laptop is reputed to be, there are still some that may break down immaturely.

    for notebook, #1 is IBM and #2 is Toshiba. I used to be in the IT leasing business, and these are the only 2 brands that maintain they value best. Please don't get an Acer.

    Eventhough nearly all of the world's notebooks, Apple's included, are made by a hand full of Taiwanese manufacturers and they are all good, but the designs and QC requirements are very different from one OEM to another.
