Woohoo! IBM fixed up my Thinkpad by swapping in a new motherboard (as expected).

I'm syncing my mail, blog stuff, and book data. Now I can get back to normal.

Yeay IBM!

I've been thinking about buying a Laptop for a while now. Thinkpad is my personal fav, but I am paying a lot for just the brandname. I can get a Dell laptop with decent configuration for 50% of that the same IBM one will cost ( atleast in India anyway )

and the hunt still goes on....

Hi Jeremy,

sorry this is a bit of a plug but im trying to promote our company website (http://www.usb-pendrive.co.uk) which is technology related. As such im looking at blogs that are technology focused.

Would you consider writing a blog about our product - usb pen drives - or could you maybe point in the right direction of a suitable blog out there that will do the job.

thanks for your help.

It's good to hear that IBM's tech support is doing a good job, but I fail to understand, why would anyone want to use a PC when they got a Mac. :)

My last PC, a kickass Dell Latitude C840, has been sitting on the shelf for about 5 months now. Ever since I got my first OS X capable machine. :)
