Been there. There's only one link to Thinkpad 240, and that link is
broken. I think that it should be yours, because it contains "sen" in
the url.

I could not access this page, unfortunately, when I first tried 3 days
ago, and today, too, Netscrape tells me that "the document contained no
data". ;^(

I tried it in a store, and I really liked the keyboard. The resolution
is indeed a bit low, but anything better would probably look too small
on a 10.4" display.

Thanks for your reply. If you could get your TP240 webpage up, that
would be really great!
