Using a T60 at the moment and have been thinking of going T420 route.
I just can't seem to see the main differences between T420 and T420s
Both can be customized to upgrade CPU/display

IMHO, unless you need the absolute smallest and lightest 14" laptop on the market, go for the T420 - better battery life (can't use bay batteries though), and a lower price.
Old/Not Working/Dead Laptops:
T61 7661CC2, 4gb, Windows 7 x64, 240gb intel SSD, 500gb Ultrabay drive
Toshiba Portege 7020ct
Thinkpad T41 23737FU
Dell Latitude LS
Minimum 2GB ram , min hd then upgrade myself.
max screen, cpu
I haven't looked into buying a new thinkpad since 2006 so I don't know if this is a good time to buy and what are the best buys these days.
When having both models equipped with batteries to match the same battery life, there is almost no difference in weight. The s model is slimmer.baraider wrote:I just can't seem to see the main differences between T420 and T420s

Not too worried about battery life as I would never use over a few hours on battery and that is rare. 14" is just fine for me and I moved back from a W520! The 420s runs COOL! Bottom hardly get warm and fan sound is no existent!
