thanks to tomfitz and freegeek, ive got a like-new a21m (except for the broken hinge). whoho.
other intrigueing opportunities are the dell E1505 aka Dell 6400. core duo lappy for $750? yes please.
the ideal laptop is the widescreen format of the lenovo z60t (pentium m), with a coreduo, and the ultra-low voltage duos that are supposed to come out in a couple months.
