I don't like widescreen notebooks. The Thinkpad T61 and T61p are as far as I can determine the last best notebooks with a 14.1" SXGA+ screen. Does Lenovo Financial Services make off-lease notebook computers available for sale anywhere? The T61s with the 4:3 screens were discontinued in 2008 if I recall correctly, which means there should still be some out there on corporate leases. Other manufacturers (notably Dell) have websites set up where you can buy older off-lease hardware from their financial services groups, and I'm hoping there's a way to do something similar for a Thinkpad. I'd love to find a loaded 14.1" SXGA+ equipped T61p with a Penryn CPU.
