Beauty.

Ahhh...the P4M. The only processor that had its prioritys out of whack.

1: Heat surroundings
2: Overheat
3: Do work

Good ol' IBMs still running strong!
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

You know at the time never really noticed :) I purchased it whilst working in Moscow (Russia) on a 3-year contract, what was great about it at the time was the SXGA+ screen
(1400x1050) which is why I purchased it... that screen was amazing real-estate and really helped my work producing Technical reports for the US Government :)

All my colleagues were deeply envious as they were stuck with USG issue T23's :)
Beauty.
I am not sure why but I have noticed a lot of fondness and love for the T30 from many quarters... it seems a rather odd 'classic' but surely it is and it ranks amongst the best!

And then I got an X31 where they continued the great tradition!

Possibly the last of the over-engineered TP's?
