[ltp] Noisy T41p and T40p??

Oh... the noise may be related to the faster spinning hard drive in the
p models. I have a T40, and it's one of the quietest laptops I've ever
used, but it's only got a 4200 RPM drive. The T40p has a 5400 rpm
drive, which may be noisier. I doubt the T41p is any more than the T40p
