Not very familiar with it, but from looking at the driver matrix the T41 uses a "Hard Drive Active Protection System" whatever that might be.
I think that might be the bit where if it senses that it's falling, it parks the hard drive to avoid a head crash...
Seen the comercials haven't you?
Starting grad school in the fall and laptops are required. Want to purchase a thin-and-light. Heard great things about the T40 and T41 but am curious if its worth paying extra few hundred for the newer T41 if anything has substantially changed?
Overall, I can't really tell -- most of the other specs seem to be the same. (I believe that all that's really changed is that IBM upgraded the 10/100 Ethernet to Gigabyte Ethernet.)
What do you IBM junkies suggest?
