    Highest Rated Consumer Review by the Community

  • The T42 is the Place to Start

    Jul 21, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Powerful, Relatively Light, Good Battery Life, Good Value, Amazing Engineering
    Cons: No dedicated 'Windows' shortcut key. I hate that!

    Summary: When I set out to research a new laptop, I quickly had the reaction that many in my position probably do: nausea. There are so many laptop brands, so many proprietary technologies, so many marketing ploys - it's a thicket. The chain stores (Best Buy and ... read more

  • Indispensable laptop

    Oct 10, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Fast processor, good DVD, durable, fingerprint access, durable.
    Cons: Bad speakers

    Summary: I purchased this laptop in 2005 based on my boyfriend's recommendation (and with a huge discount). He's a network administrator and have made it his personal crusade to rid this world of Dell computers. Anyway, it's been a year and I absolutely love ... read more

  • T42 Thinkpad by IBM

    Nov 2, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: customer service, ThinkLight
    Cons: build quality has suffered, price

    Summary: I'm a die-hard IBM PC user, but that may be changing. This review is intended to encompass IBM T-series Thinkpads in general, but the T42 in particular. I had a T23 that I loved dearly--in fact, I still use it. It's heavy and built like a tank. I ... read more

  • It's definitely not a Dell

    Jul 2, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Durability, keyboard, driver support
    Cons: Price, numlock, connection placement

    Summary: I've been using thinkpads since the orginal T-series came out, the T20. Since then, IBM has gone through many revisions; first getting larger with the T30 and then getting much smaller with the T40 series. The T42 is IBM's latest revision of the T40 ... read more

  • good light and powerful laptop

    Nov 29, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: light, powerful, great screen, good keyboard, docks well
    Cons: bad Function key placement, no Windows key, wireless connectivity app doesn't play well with others

    Summary: This is my first laptop since an Apple Powerbook back in 1997. I use it either at work for design (while docked and attached to a 20" CRT) or for toting around from one meeting to another, or at home for checking my email or web browsing when I want more ... read more

  • IBM T42 - The Solid Middle

    Nov 18, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent-Keyboard, Solid Case, Good Performance, IBM Online Support, Video Performance, Slimline, add-ons, Decent-Batlife.
    Cons: IBM Canada, IBM USA?, More $$$, Pricey Extras & Features, needs DVI port.

    Summary: UPDATE: I am downgrading my rating to 3 stars. I have tested the system with 1GB or RAM and with the included graphics card performance at 1400x1050x16 is fast to good with even the latest games (32 bit gets choppy) however the system has developed a ... read more

  • IBM has cheapend the T series

    Aug 30, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Keyboard light, firm keyboard, ultrabay expansion, metal lcd hinges.
    Cons: cheap lower case, flex and twisting case, poor construction for a unit of this reputation

    Summary: I have been a Thinkpad owner for many years... started with a T20, then a T30... I recently purchased a T42 after being so happy with my other models. I expected the same durability and rugged construction that comprised my T30. The T30 is a well build ... read more

  • Great Laptop

    Jun 27, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid construction, great keyboard, wonderful display
    Cons: Pricier than clone competitors

    Summary: Customer Service- I initially tried to order a custom setup using the website but ran into problems - the T42's were brand-spanking new at the time and their website hadn't quite been sorted out yet. I eventually gave up and called IBM directly. The ... read more

  • Great Laptop

    Dec 29, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Durability, reliability, support, features, and speed.
    Cons: A little more costly, but well worth it.

    Summary: I use my laptop for accessing internet, word processing, photos, videos and music. Although this is not a multimedia laptop, I love it. It is well built, nice and simple user friendly design. IBM/Lenovo make very durable laptops that stand up to ... read more

  • Great Computer

    Sep 13, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Quality, light
    Cons: More expensive, but probably worth it.

    Summary: I purchased this computer for law school and its been working great. I based my decision on many of the reviews that I found on this site as well as other review sites (CNET, PCworld, etc.). You will pay more, but you get what you pay for. Our school ... read more

  • Crash problems

    May 17, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Fast, very good performance.
    Cons: Unreliable, cost me many hours of lost work due to unexpected crashes.

    Summary: Disappointed from this machine, because at ~ every 1 or 2 weeks crashes at boot time, without apparent reason. Restoring Operating system from ACCESS IBM feature did not work correctly. IBM support blamed firmware version of hardisk. They upgraded ... read more

  • Great features and solid value

    Aug 10, 2004 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Great networking Features
    Cons: no windows key

    Summary: I recently had a troubling experience with a Toshiba that I purchased 2 years ago. The graphics card and display died. I needed a replacement and needed it quickly. My close friend is an IT professional and we looked at several IBM models before ... read more
