Default ibm t23

i was wondering what type of hard drive and optical (ide probably?) and what type of ram(ddr?) the ibm t23 laptop usually has. i have the specs just need to know info for upgrades before i buy.

here are the specs how much is it worth.

Intelģ Pentiumģ M- 3 processor 1.13 GHz CPU

Huge 14.1" XGA TFT Active Matrix screen 1024X768 trueColor DISPLAY

10 GB Hard Drive (Enough room to store all of your programs, MP3s, Digital photos, Word processing documents, spread sheets, etc.

384MB RAM
DVD-Rom DRIVE ( This gives you the freedom to Watch DVD Movies, play games and music CDs anywhere)

Swapable Floppy Drive is also included



56K Modem (use for DSL connection)



10/100/1000 NIC Ethernet Controller Use for Cable, office or home network





Battery is Included (Hold charge but not in warranty)



Ac adapter Included





Windows XP Professional is pre loaded with 2000 COA



Software Installed:

MSOffice(Microsoft word,Microsoft Excel,Microsoft Powerpoint),WinDVD player Software etc



This used IBM T23 is in GOOD WORKING CONDITION. May have some blemish on lcd screen. It was from a corporate environment where it was used with normal wear .The laptop is tight and solid and very high quality and performs and functions perfectly.





Ports:

9 pin Serial, 2 USB, VGA (External Moniter), Audio Line-Out (Headphones), Microphone - In, PCMCIA slot, Video Out, Mouse, Parallel (for printer)

Lenovo Support & downloads - Specifications - ThinkPad T23

Lenovo Support & downloads - Product information - ThinkPad T23

After a quick search at the IBM site i found this. I am sure that the people that make the laptop will be better equiped to answer questions about a product this outdated.

Lenovo Support & downloads - Overview - ThinkPad T23

According to this page. No. This PC came out when Win95 and Win98 were still in use and made some adjustements to it to get XP on there. Sounds like it was before the time of the mini cards for WiFi.

You think this laptop could run linuxMCE no problem? if i upgraded the hdd to like an 80gb to hold music and stuff.. should be good?

That depends. If you go to 1GB of RAM which it is said to support then maybe. But the CPU is still kinda slow. A 1GHz to at most a 1.2GHz PIII CPU wouldnt be ideal for a MCE. At least not in my opinion.

I don't think it will, either. At least not ideally. You should invest a little more and get a better cpu out of it.
