Got it in, in perfect condition except for a green stuck pixel in the taskbar area. Not too noticeable during normal use, but I'm ****. A little pixel massage later might do the trick, though.

Great thing about it is the TrackPoint mouse is SO much better than a trackpad IMHO. The other thing is the cover. It's made of a magnesium alloy, and is hard...I can hold it and not be worried about smashing the screen.

Just finished wiping the hard drive and am installing a new copy o' XP Pro.

Looks nice, great idea getting the port replicator as well! Hope you enjoy it!

Well ****

There are TWO dead pixels, right toward the middle.

That's IT!

I can't get a refund, and IBM won't take it back for repair for two pixels.

Very nice man!
I wish I would have saved to get an IBM... My toshiba is trash! Not even a year old and broken keys, lid clip, and dead pixels.... And the thing is it stays home 80% of the time... Oh well, live and learn! I'll know next time....

A natural reaction from getting too close to your girlfriends pebble/candle lumiere.
