IBM Notebook ThinkPad T43


  • pg 1
									The IBM notebook version ThinkPad T43, one that is particularly targeted at
professional buyers, has the speed and power to run any typical business application.
The ThinkPad trade name of IBM notebook computers has garnered the status of
being notebooks of significant quality, solidly constructed, with a sleek design and a
highly professional appearance given their typical matte black color.

This IBM notebook model, like some others in the T series, comes with notable and
impressive features like a keyboard light, a biometric fingerprint reader, shock
absorbers for the hard-drive, an embedded security subsystem, and a speed dial
function for multiple network connections.

Furthermore, this particular IBM notebook is both thin and lightweight. Available in
either a 15-inch or a 14.1-inch SXGA screen, it has a TFT monitor and is housed
within a strong Titanium composite case. The optical drive comes as either a CD-RW
or a DVD-RW drive.

The bay you'll find in this IBM notebook is called the UltraBay. It is a fully modular
bay which can be used for an extra battery, an alternative optical drive or even as a
tray for holding a secondary hard drive.

You may find that one of the most attractive feature of this IBM notebook is the
keyboard. The keys have been neatly arranged in 7 rows. Given the inclusion of a
pointing stick, a touch-pad and multiple mouse buttons, you have several options for
screen cursor movement.

Just above the keyboard, you'll find the power button, a volume up and down button
and a mute button. Similarly. you can find the Access IBM button which will launch
an IBM application called Access IBM. Access IBM serves as a guide to using,
protecting, configuring and updating software on your IBM notebook.

Just as with any other IBM notebook in the ThinkPad series, you won't find a
"Windows" key. Still, the keyboard of this IBM notebook is basically unmatched in
both convenience and ergonomics.

Powered by a Pentium M processor, this IBM notebook model comes with an
integrated Intel 2915 PRO/Wireless 802.11 a/b/g internal wi-fi card and has an
Ultra-Connect Wireless Antenna which is hidden in the upper right-hand area of the
monitor. The fingerprint reader eliminates the need for users to remember multiple
passwords (now that's a nice feature!).

It comes with a standard 6-cell Lithium Ion rechargeable battery that should last over
3 hours. The IBM notebook ThinkPad T43 comes standard with multiple features and
utilities. In addition, you'll get a 3 year customer carry-in global hardware warranty.
While an IBM notebook tends to carry a somewhat higher price tag than alternative
models from other notebook manufacturers, this is a very popular notebook since it is
a feature rich, reliable notebook, with an excellent warranty and all the qualities most
business notebook users find essential. And the IBM brand helps convince the
accountants that it's a wise purchase option.
