    Here is what I could find on the net about the T43 it is from this forum http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=6162&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=15 I am not sure if it is correct but it sounds good!

    Hope this helps ! [:D] [:D]

    Hmmm so is it worthwhile to wait for it to come out or go ahead with a purchase of the current T42?

    I believe this is a worthy upgrade to the T42, the improved FSB speed on the Pentium M will give you added performance, and then having the newest type of expansion slots is certainly a nice thing to have.

    I'm waiting for the T43 too! Only 1-2 months and i'll have one in my hand... Hopefully they will be in the same price range... If not, i'll have to go with a (discounted) T42.

    I'm targetting the 2668-4EU. Please IBM, make it under 2000$!

    The only thing that upset me is the fact that bluetooth is not standard on all models...

    tensai_jin,

    I would wait as abaxter said this is a big improvement, but even if you don't care about the new specs you will probably get the T42 cheaper after teh T43 hits the market.
