Go for that ThinkPad. They go on forever. I have an 8 year old X31 with no screen, its been in a workshop and has been dropped and banged over the years. The only sign of failure is the now 8 bad sectors on the HDD.

Dang, thanks for the suggestion. I wish I seen it earlier, but I had an 8 AM class this morning.

Edit: Dang, the system I posted last night sold, but I guess that was a good thing if you all think there are better buys to be had.
