Sign me up. Already have a WordPress. Its a durable machine and can do pretty much anything you need it to. How crazy is that When I say normally I mean the price on Lenovo's website. It's hard to pin down an exact price because Lenovo always have coupons and sales etc. It was a one day special sale. This is more or less the right price given that Lenovo cost nearly twice as much here than US. It also costs more to get it in China, go figure.
It is really a great deal. P 2. Intel graphic on low setting get me close to 6 hours; 9 cell will give me at least 7 hours.

Thinkpads are generally more expensive compare with other vendors anyway. It is lacking in the graphics department tho so I doubt it would be popular amongst college students. However as a portable workstation it's great. If I didn't get such a great deal on my T I would totally consider the Ts. What battery did you get with your T? From memory, the default battery is only a 4 cell. I've gotten quite interested in a SL, what are the main differences between the the T and SL series?

There is also the new SL and Lenovo's own Ideapad but I won't include them because they are very different to the original Thinkpad design. My T is a I perfer the T because it is more slim-lined compare to the R and generally come with more warranty. X series are portable laptops meaning they have smaller screens and also cost a lot more. T therefore is the balance that I was looking for.
Still in plastic wrapping Cables, Battery, and driver CDs I've recieved a smart-chip 6 cell battery with my laptop. I don't really know what this means but it could only be good because batteries degrade overtime. The cover. Thinkpads have anti-scratch cover. I personally would never buy a notebook with a glossy cover. They look pretty but will be annoying after a while.
Not to mention the fact that they reflect light and smudges. Reason being that they don't reflect. IMO Thinkpads have the best laptop keyboard ever. The keys are spaced well and also have nice feedback from pressing.
