I found pages on the net that led me to believe that the T61 would take
a microSD directly, but maybe I misread what I was reading.

I agree that the backup is USB cable or Bluetooth. It just might be
faster and simpler using the card. I just want to put my mp3s on it,
but it's a one-time deal. My mp3s are ripped from my collection of
classical and opera on CD. I never add or remove mp3s from my computer,
and I have no use for buying and downloading popular tunes from net
stores. Once the mp3s are on the microSD card, I am done.
