Hardware, Embedded Systems were once more very kind to send us one of their products for a review. Geeks sells cheap laptops --among others-- and so we asked for a low-cost laptop without an operating system in it for the purpose of this review. They sent us the IBM T23, (currently selling for just $299) and an extra 256 MB stick of RAM ($30). We tested the laptop with three different OSes, read on for more.

"The T23 is known as perhaps the best succeeded Thinkpad model and it does feel great...."

It even has a usable build in keyboard. Where are these useless "Windows" keys? Glad I can't find them on the picture published in the article. :-)

Furthermore, like his predecessors, the T23 has a trackpoint (this is how IBM calls the "touch stick" in the article) instead of these blurry touchpads with their habit of getting dirty and being imprecise.

It's a nice little machine that is worth keeping it alive for a while. For programming, diagnostics, for watching CDs and DVDs and even for gaming it's quite good. And it's nice to see it works fine with Linux.
