Im looking for a laptop that is as user serviceable as possible.
I have been using Ibm's t42p as solid laptops for work. with 1.7M and 2gb ram the thing flies and has more speed than I will ever need but I have purchased 3 of them in the last 3 months because they have motherboard issues. and it seems most of them on the market now are too old and are bound to suffer from the same problem. I can't purchase a new mobo and buying refurbished ones is a waste of time since they have simply been reheated.
The t42 has been a legendary laptop for its speed and design. years after it was released still runs windows 7 faster than a lot of tops
So is there a budget laptop out there with great performance that is as reliable as a ak47?
Obviously I want to spend as little as possible. the t42 cost me 250 bucks loaded up with 2 gigs of ram so I don't want to spend much more than that.
I tried looking at other IBM models but they arent as good.
I really like my desktop computer because when something goes wrong I just swap out what ever is bad and keep running. I would like to do the same with a laptop.
Im not afraid to buy used or refurbished and software is not something I want to pay for since I allready have it
Thanks a bunch!!
