I'll have to read that article. I have a nit pick about it however, which
700C wasn't the first ThinkPad--the 700 was. The 700C came out like the
next week or something, but the 700 mono was a little bit earlier than the
color 700C. I had a 700C. Wonderful machine, except for the HORRID
hinge problem; in the 20 months I had it, I had five screen changes, four
of them due to failing hinges.
