Basically the T41P is a gaming machine right out of the box. I don't 
know what kind of support the ATI Radeon Mobility 9000 has under 
Linux, but certainly under The Evil OS it should play most games 
right out of the box. A ThinkPad would certainly be easier to take to 
a LAN party than the average Box.

Maybe when these start showing up at Computer Geeks in a few years 
I'll snag one. I'm happy with my 600E, almost everything works under 
Linux. But I had a serious case of technolust when I first saw the 
T4x series of ThinkPads.
