L520 or T520

I am about to order a L520 or T520 tomorrow. I am interested in general observations and recommendations you may have on my decision.

 

One specific question: The keyboard on my old Thinkpads, including the T42 I am currently typing on, was awesome! On the T61 that just bit the dust--the keyboard was not so great. And obviously durabliity wasn't so great on the T61 either.

 

But does anyone know if there is a way to order a keyboard that has the "feel" of the old IBM thinkpads? If so, I am going to be sure to get that upgrade!

 

Thanks in advance...

Re: L520 or T520

well, the new keyboard on the T520 doesn't really have the feel of the old T4x keyboards, depending on which one you get, you may get something closer to the T61.

Re: L520 or T520

Also, does anyone know if the T61 power cords work with the L520 or T520?
