Do not get a ThinkPad 600. I bought one used and installed woody on it
with relatively few problems for the newbie I was at the time.  The
real problem is not linux-specific and has to do with rapidly
decreasing battery life.  It's a shame, because other than that I have
been very happy with my TP600, but as a desktop machine.
