I was just wondering why IBM thinkpads are SOOO expensive but the specs arent that great. Today i went to a local computer store and i saw some IBM thinkpads for like $1500 but it was a P3, 1.44 ghz, 128MB, and like 15GB.. my teacher and my friends have one. They spent a lot on it and when i use them, they are fairly quick and can run big programs like Logic. Are IBM thinkpads just overpriced or are they actually good. I can't find any that are like 2.0+ Ghz, or even 512 . and they are all over $800..
