    I am shopping for a laptop in the $2,000 price range. I currently narrowed
    down to two models: IBM ThinkPad T42 2378DXU and Fujitsu Lifebook E8010.
    They both come with Pentium M 1.7 GHz, 512 MB PC 2700 memory, 60GB HD, 15 in
    SXGA display, ATI Mobility Radeon graphics w/ 64MB. Since this will be my
    first laptop, I'll greatly appreciate if someone can help me to decide which
    one I should go with. Are there any other models are worth to be
    considered? I heard some good things about Acer TravelMate 8000. How it
    compare to T42 and/or Lifebook E8010?

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. TIA!

    I'm considering the T42 now also, but in looking at the 2378DXU and
    the 2379DXU, I'm choosing the 2379 because of the 3 year warranty for
    an extra $100 (because my A30 crapped out after 13 months and it only
    had a 1 year warranty).
    I'm not familiar with the Lifebook, but this T42 looks like a real
    fine computer.
