Thinkpads are overrated, especially after the T60's.
They are sturdy and the T40-T42 models are decent W98 laptops with a competent GPU. I often see them just below $60, sometimes docking station included and I think they are rated just right. T43 and anything newer than those however lack W98 support while at the same time lack XP gaming performance.
Yes, i'm aware T42 was the best 98 laptop of the thinkpads. Its just the screens on these laptops let them down. I got rid of my thinkpads post win xp. the current laptop i have is a hp 8770w in beat up condition upgraded to i7 and 670m. i've gone off laptops until the prices come down for 11th gen intel dell laptops
