Pros: Cooling fan
eSATA (aka very fast)
3 TB support under Linux (CentOS 5.9)
Easy to change the drives
Cons: Case is a tad on the flimsy side.
Other Thoughts: For 3 TB volumes, you have to use a GPT (GUID partition table). Under Linux, this means gdisk and not fdisk.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: You're already interested in a ThinkPad, so you know of the legendary build quality and durability. I would like to add one thing: the keyboard is the best laptop keyboard I've ever used. I'm admittedly picky about keyboards, but this is the first laptop I'd want to get real work done on.
What's more, all features (audio, video, trackpoint, trackpad, thinkbutton, finger scanner, wifi, ethernet, bluetooth) worked out-of-the-box on CentOS 6.3.
Cons: In 2013, a Core 2 Duo @ 2 Ghz might seem a little underpowered. It is, however, more then adequate for my needs.
Comes with Windows 7 installed. I immediately installed Linux. In other words, it include the Microsoft Tax.
This review is from: EVERCOOL FAN-AL9025B 92mm Aluminum Case Cooling Fan
Pros: Very solid and heavy fans.
Comes with 3 pin header and adapter to 4-pin molex.
Comes with non-standard screws.
Cons: These fans are surprisingly thick. They might not fit under your case's front panel.
These fans don't use standard fan screws. What's more, they can only be attached on one side. This is OK for blowing air outside the case, but if you want it blown into the case they must be mounted on the outside. Or use bolts, not included.
Other Thoughts: As a child of the 70s, I love me some chrome.
These are flashy without being rice, IMHO.
