I've had a T42 for 3+ years now (4 in December) and I love it.  I did have a fan failure about a year ago, but I purchased the 9x5 next business day service so they came out and fixed it right away.  I looked at it and I'm pretty sure it was just full of dust and couldn't spin up. 

I highly suggest that you avoid Vista if you can.  Its a bloated OS that will need time for bugs to be worked out and hardware to evolve to support it.  XP had the same problem, but now I consider it "seasoned" well enough.  If you really want to run Vista, run it on a Mac.  :-)

Unless you stop buying stuff at all, you'd be supporting "Communist Regime" in China one way or another.
You can sometimes find good sales on Thinkpads. I recently bought a t61 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo / 2 GB RAM / WinXP Pro for $1200 shipped, and it came in less than a week.

I second the T61. If you want to buy Lenovo, it's not a bad get. Despite the fact that you're directly supporting the Communist Regime in China when you do so. ;)

(When you buy other computers you're only indirectly supporting communism in China.)

Do not do business with TigerDirect.

(Each word is a link, pay special attention to the last one.)

TITCR.  Tiger Direct is not a very good company even though they've been in business for a very long time (I remember getting their catalog as far back as 1993).  In general, Newegg.com is the recommended vendor for all your PC hardware and software needs.
