    hey man let me put it like this the the thinkpad is a great computer and that you have a option of 14.1 or a 15.4inche screen. ther is really no difference in the screen when your using the laptop. but yes the 15.4 screen is more cleaner or roomyer. wat i mean is that the 15.4 inch screen supports 1920x 1200 resolution. so it just looks better i have a 14.1 the reason i choose a 14.1 screen was the ability to take it out in class and us it one the desk and still have room to write. 14.1 is really great when it comes to traveling. it is the best. i love it . i have a 6cell battery and my laptop only weights about 5.3 lbs that is really nothing. compared to my Dell inspiron 5160 which wieghted 10.4lb and with adapter it was lik 13-15lb.

    another difference is the video card. the 15.4 just has a better video card. and if your going to use autoCAD i would recommend that you should get the most and the best graphic card man. hahahah


    you know something thinkpads are just great computers. i just love them. i hope this has helped you understanding everything. from expience, if your traveling you should get the 14.1 if you like to travle small and light. but you dont care about size and your a power demon then go ahead and get the thinkpad t61p. it is a great laptop i just love it. i am actually saving up to get another one for games and this time i am going to get the t61p with 256mb video card

    I assume you mean the OS when you talk about a downgrade. That's a lot of computer for $1100. The only things I would add are more ram and an extended warranty, but that's just a matter of personal preference.

    Maybe it will seem like a not so good deal but the exact price was $1122 and I had to pay tax on that but there was a considerable savings. I'll order memory when the thing ships. One of these days I will pay the price for not buying the warranty but I never have.

    That's a heck of a deal. Good point about the memory, it probably is cheaper to buy it and add it later.

    Let me know how you like the 4:3 aspect. I got an R61 a month ago, but really want a T61P either 14" or 15", still debating if I like the fullscreen or widescreen aspect. My R61 (NVS 140M) is pretty nice, though my latches suck, and I am getting the penryn whine (inducter probobly). So I am looking to get those things fixed, sell it, and get a T but really am not sure about the fit and finish of the 14" and 15" models.
