The laptop is coming! The laptop is coming!

Odd how grown men, myself included, get giddy about new toys. My IBM ThinkPad T41 is no longer reliable. It has taken to being heat sensitive. I suspect something inside is broken / slightly disconnected and as the heat inside increases, a connection fails. I have tried to fix it, but failed.

It has been acting tempermental for about two months now. I narrowed my search down to the ThinkPad x61s:

  • Processor: Intel® Core TM 2 Duo L7500 LV (1.6GHz, 4MBL2, 800MHzFSB)
  • Operating System: Genuine Windows Vista Business 64 1
  • Display: 12.1″ UltraLight XGA TFT, 2x3UltraConnect II antenna
  • 4GB RAM – 2GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM 667MHz SODIMM Memory
  • Hard Drive: 160GB Hard Disk Drive, 7200rpm
  • Battery: ThinkPad X60s Series 8 cell HighCapacity
  • Warranty: 3 year on site 9×5 Next BusinessDay

I place the order on Thursday. It should arrive today (Tuesday). The timeline so far is:

  1. Order placed Thursday 13 March
  2. On March 17, 9:40 PM, the laptop leaves Shanghai
  3. At 3:11 P.M, it leaves Anchorage (it crossed the International Dateline, so that’s why time went backwards).
  4. At 4:22 A.M on the 18th, today, it leaves Louisville, Kentucky
  5. At 5:47 A.M, it arrives in Philadelphia
  6. 7:36 A.M – it leaves Horsham for delivery
  7. It should be here sometime today.
