life with ubuntu on a thinkpad T40

My New T40!

Posted by ubuntufan on April 2, 2007

I just received my new Thinkpad T40. I know, it’s a few yrs old and there are better laptops for running Linux, but I really like it. I purchased it from one of those off-lease liquidation shops on ebay. I must say, I’m pleasently surprised at the condition. It looks almost new…seriously. For $400 I get 1.5gHz Centrino, 512megs of RAM, CD-RW/DVD combo, 40gig HD, 802.11g integrated wifi…the works. What a great deal. I have another 512 megs of RAM to stick into it when I get it home. That will help.

This system came preloaded with PCLinux…not too familiar with that distro, but it’s KDE and I don’t think it will make it through the night. I was afraid that I’d have to change the name of the blog to “Life With Ubuntu on a D600” until I found this little gem. I’m so excited I can hardly contain myself…..
