Hardware, Embedded Systems Geeks.com 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.

ive been running my T23 dual boot windows xp and debian linux for about 2 years. it works great. though i dont think the laptop is that out of date. how fast a machine do you need for word processing and other work related tasks? mine also plays DVD's and stuff just fine. and runs unreal tournamanet. this wasnt a gaming laptop even when new so dont expect anything newer then DX7 or DX8 games to work at all.

Agreed, I have a 900MHz ThinkPad T22 that's running just fine with XP Pro SP2
