It's time to move on.

My old laptop, khem, is gone, and even if I do get it back, ever, it will probably be trashed. I need a computer.

Now, do I pay a pittance, and get the same model (IBM 2645), or do I pay about the same amount, and get 3 times as much computer (2647), or do I pay 4 times as much and get a NEW ten times as much computer.

Probably not new, who knows how hard it will be to get Linux running on it, but getting a T23 with the ThinkLight (for typing in the dark) and integrated wireless would be Very Nice.

Plus, it will need a name...

Now, who needs light to type?

Me, I would decide if I was filling a gap until the Next Big Thing, or investing in the future, and pay according.

I don't need a light to touchtype, but I sometimes do when I am "pushing buttons". (No, I don't understand it either.)

I've decided on the midrange for right now, and have a bid on T23 (no interated wireless tho). I find out at 7am whether I win it or not. If not, I have a next one to try, again with a 12 hours wait.
