So I’ve been given the Okie Dokey to upgrade my laptop (featured here) to something with more memory and a faster CPU. The current machine is a T40 (1.2ghz, 768meg, 40gig). (although, for some mysterious reason, /proc/cpuinfo -always- says:
model name : Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1400MHz stepping : 5 cpu MHz : 598.174
even though I’ve disabled all speedstep stuff in the bios.
ANYWAY. I need More. Running eclipse, jboss, firefox, evolution, and apache, plus most likely an Oracle instance means I need at least 2 gig of memory on the machine.
I’m totally confused by the Thinkpad lineup nowadays. I think what I want is a T43 maxed out on memory, but maybe I’m wrong? The only other thing I definately need is 1400×1200 on the laptop screen. I do enough work on the machine itself that 1024×768 is -right- out as a workable resolution.
Anyone care to untangle the mess that is the Thinkpad line for me? My requirements are:
- 1.8ghz or faster
- 2 gig of memory (I can start with 1 gig and upgrade later)
- at least 40 gig of disk
- 15″ display
- On-screen resolution of 1400×1050
