I had a bad dream last night. I dreamt that IBM had sold off its laptop division and, horror of all horrors, the buyer had decided to make a silver ThinkPad (not yet out but it has been announced). Then I realized I wasn't dreaming, it was the unholy truth. I still shudder at the thought. Thankfully I got my ThinkPad prior to the change over. Let's explore what the latest T43 has to offer.

Lenovo keeps it simple with the T43. You get the system, an AC adapter, R11 cable suitable for modem use, service guide and a pair of extra nipples. More on that later.
