Hi there,
I need to replace my old pc and think about a thinkpad, but I need some
more info to make a decision.
I think that for my purposes the T and R series would be most
interesting, maybe also the X series.

I need to know which controllers for IEEE 1394(firewire, if
available, and wheter it's 4 or 6 pole), expresscard, cardbus ... are
built in.
Also important for me is whether the usb buses/ports share interrupts
with something else, like graphics, and whether there's a bios option
to change that.

Harddrive write throughput would also be interesting.

Some commands that probably yield useful information:
cat /proc/interrupts

Don't quite know how to test the HD.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Regards, Philipp
