Can anyone recommend to me a 600X replacement (old or new) that is a similar form factor and feel? If not a ThinkPad model, I'd consider a >sob< non-ThinkPad.
(Note that I can't use a Lenovo because it's the only laptop manufacturer not on the client's Approved Vendor list)
TP 600X/850MHz/576M/100G 7K100/Win2K-OfficeXP/SystemSuite 7
Dell Latitude D620 WinXP - Office2003/SystemSuite 7 (my 600X replacement!)

For many people, 600x had the best keyboard ever seen on a laptop. As for the feel of the entire machine, although I'm not a 600 series buff, I'll admit that it's likely the sturdiest ThinkPad ever built...
Now, when you say 2Ghz CPU...which generation are you referring to? P4M, PM, Core Duo or Core 2 Duo? Knowing that would give one a better idea of what machine to possibly suggest...
And if someone really likes the keyboard and general feel of a 600x, nothing but a ThinkPad will ever do IMO...

i would definitely agree with that, because i myself use it everyday and not only do i get the wows for its looks and form factor but also the things i pull off from it infront of my grad clas..But take a look to the X60/X61 series - also awesome machines.
i have done stuff ranging from installing Mac os x successfully to presently using windows 7 with no problems whatsoever..
u shud consider an x61 series...feel free to ask any questions with regards to tat one@@
