Wink Which should it be? (T23 or T40)

Hi guys,

I need to choose a laptop for work. options are T-23 immediately, or T-40 which I'll get in about 40 days...

I can waitÂ… but I prefer not to. (-:

Does it really matter so much ?

HUGE difference. Wait.

Patience is a virtue, especially when it comes to stuff you drop loads of cash on.

System specs? Lets just get down to it people:

Also, i work on both. and we have replaced hundreds of t-23 laptop drives. I absolutley would wait. The only minor thing that i dont really like about the t-40 is that it does not come with a FDD. For a user these days that is not a problem. But from a technician POV they are helpful. But the machine is about twice as fast. wait wait wait.

i am no lazier now than I was forty years ago, but that is because I reached the limit forty years ago. You can\'t go beyond possibility.
