Well, then I might as well also chip in with my vote for the IBM
T-Series.  Here at Stevens, all undergrads get a Compaq.  My colleague
and I continue to buy IBM's for our faculty, and have only had good
experiences with them.  Compaq's have odd hardware with odd flaws and --
but this may be due to Stevens' contract with Compaq -- overly
complicated return-policies.

My IBM T-30 is very nice, and I can't complain about the builtin
wireless either -- seems to work just fine.  Also, the T-30 has a serial
port, too.


This one's tricky. You have to use imaginary numbers, like eleventeen...
