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.

Do you have a sealed shower or something? I always thought that steam/condensation would kill a computer pretty quickly in that sort of environment.

Appearantly not. There's not even a vent fan, and I've numerous times popped out of the water stream to change tracks, dripping water all over the place. Most laptops do have a metal plate behind the keyboard, so that's not much of a concern, but condensation... not hurt anything yet.


Laptops: Tougher than you'd think! (??!)
