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.
CLS 2011.  All done.
