4. Except for the topics covered by the questions above and the
graphics controller chip, is there a difference between T60 and

a (non-p) T60 would be better.
I wish I could help you answer your questions, but checking my own
machine wouldn't answer your questions about whether other
By the way they're not "IBM" ThinkPads anymore, they're Lenovo.
Somebody should tell Lenovo that offering a billion different variations
without clearly delineating them is no way to run a premium laptop
brand! I hope they're not just using whatever parts they can find
