Pros: The image quality is very very nice. Almost to sharp. Now I can see all the aliasing artifacts.
Cons: Stand is very wobbly.
Other Thoughts: Note that while the monitor has next to no bevel, the image will not extend all the way to the edge of the IPS panel. It turns out the bevel on most screens is there to cover the edge of the panel. I knew this before purchase and didn't care. Looks nice IMHO.READ FULL REVIEW
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.
