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 ?

Grateful,

Chicitita.

HUGE difference. Wait.

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

the T23 notebook has these specifications:
  • 1.13 GHz Intel Pentium III
  • 128 MB SDRAM
  • 30 GB EIDE Hard Disk
  • DVD-ROM: 8x;
  • Windows XP Professional
  • 14.1 inch active-matrix display
  • 5.19 pounds
The T40 has these specifications:
  • 1.50 GHz Intel Pentium M
  • 256 MB DDR SDRAM
  • 40 GB Hard Disk
  • DVD-ROM: 8x;
  • Windows XP Professional
  • 14.1 inch active-matrix display
  • 4.9 pounds
(NB - All information from Amazon.com)

The T40 is not only a lot faster, with DDR RAM, it also weighs less

It has new generation processor and memory.

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.

If you buy the T23 you will regret it!

Wait and buy the T40!
