i was just thinking off the differences wrt install/drivers.

To be complete - I guess we should mention the 3rd difference - the
availability of wireless a/b/g with T41.  But then - drivers in linux?

I have the a/b card - and I haven't investigated using the madwifi
driver yet. It appears to be in a reorganization mode - to get a
common base for both linux & freebsd. I can get away with using an old
lucent wireless card - so getting the a/b card working isn't crucial
right now.
