Thanks for the input! Does anyone know of a site where I could look at the specs of all the thinkpads?
I have a couple of machines for sale in the market place here that could be configured to meet all your requirements. Send a PM if you need more info.
That T41 is tempting, only major turn off is the absence of a trackpad. I want to look around a bit at a few more models before I make my final decision, but that sure is a great price.
I'm not an expert on what connections look like, but the connector on the port replicator for my wife's T400 looks like what I remember parallel connections were.
If so, wouldn't it be better to get a replicator for a recent ThinkPad, rather than go backwards?
I don't really know anything about that, but I don't need a whole lot of power, and I'd like to keep things on the cheap. Also, I don't really want to take the risk of these replicators not working for what I need it for (as in the USB to parallel adaptors).
