Buying a replacement laptop

My laptop, amsu, an IBM-TP-T23, has been getting more and more flakey. It eats its batteries, occationally hangs on boot, and now this evening when it booted up, it didn't get carrier on it's ethernet port. So I just placed an order from for a refurbed IBM-TP-T40. I'd have rather waited until I was drawing an income again, but having a computer is a mandatory possession. Without it, no future income will be possible.
