Hi, i have a question. What's the meaning of the s at the end of some ThinkPad names? For example, what is the difference between T420 and T420s?

Slim. The T420s is slimmer (by around 0.5cm) and lighter (3.75 lbs) than the regular T420 (4.32 lbs).

If you really want to get technical, it means an STN display on machines older than 2000.
Probably should be Thinkpad16by10.

Looking For: 386 laptop, IBM or not.
