Pros: This is in response to commenter Brett. You CAN swap the Fn and CTRL keys if you want. This is done from "ThinkPad Setup" by pressing F1 on boot.

Pros: Cheap and works great with a multi-monitor setup.
Cons: That I didn't buy one sooner. 8400 GS cards are decent, reliable and work in Windows 7 easily as long as you download the latest nVidia driver set.
Other Thoughts: The image seen here isn't the card you get. The card you get looks identical but only has a heatsink with no fan by design, and that's GREAT because it's one less thing to break. That's a bonus as far as I'm concerned.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap. Runs everything fine. Not a bad card, but not a good card either. Adequate at best.
Cons: With multiple monitors enabled, your screens will flicker in Windows 7. You can mostly get rid of it by using a 'Basic' or 'Classic' theme, but then it looks like you're running a PC from 1999. Doesn't matter if you upgrade to the latest nVidia drivers, you'll always get the flicker when Aero Glass is turned on.
Other Thoughts: Buy it only if for somebody else that does not use multiple monitors. If the card if for you, spend the extra 5 to 10 bucks for something better. You won't be sorry. Even the next BFG card up from this one is much better - an NO FLICKERING.READ FULL REVIEW
