Trying to differentiate b/w two X40 models

#1 Post by SailingAway » Sun Sep 23, 2012 4:19 pm


I'm in the process of purchasing one of the two X40 models listed below.

X40 2371-6GA (1.2 GHz)
X40 2371-E6A (1.4 GHz)

Can anyone answer the following questions.

1. Which model uses the older Pentium M Banias CPU and which has the newer Dothan CPU?
2. Which model is classified as the low voltage (LV) and which is the Ultra Low Voltage (ULV)?
3. Which model would you prefer, given each has the same RAM?

240x | T43 | X200 | X40 | X120e | X61s I X201 I X220

Welcome to the forum!

1. Pretty sure the 1.2GHz CPU could be either, but the 1.4 is most likely Dothan.

2. The 2371-6GA is a LV. The 2371-E6A is also an LV. Neither one is ULV.

3. There is not enough difference is specs to matter. I would choose the one that is in the best physical condition, or has the best battery or other accesories.
Collection = T430 - T500 - R400 - X300 - T61 (14" WXGA+) - R61 (15" SXGA+) - X40 - T43p - T43 - T42p - A30P

Most ULV models were shipped in Japan. May be one ULV was shipped in the US.
