The IBM ThinkPad 240 - A sub-£200 gem?

26 August 2006
  • Excerpt: "...It truly is amazing how IBM have managed to squeeze a full laptop into such a small case. The screen has a resolution of 800x600 pixels, which is enough for office work and Internet browsing. Battery life is good at 2 hours, and the keyboard is up to the usual IBM quality, feeling firm yet responsive. Now on to a few things that need imporvement. The actual case of the laptop feels tacky and cheap, being entirely plastic. The small size of the ...
  • Pros: Small size, Lights, Looks smart !

  • Excerpt: "...and as light as possible, IBM have pared this down to the absolute minimum, to the extent that it doesn't even have a floppy drive or CD in the case (these can be plugged in - if you need them) How small is small? - well - just a little bigger than the 10x8" screen, so it's certainly sub-A4. The result is a very small, very sexy colour notebook which is well up to most business tasks, and still draws envious looks when you pull it out at meetings! I've ...
  • Pros: Small lightweight and very portable
  • Cons: Relatively slow and no internal FFD or CD

  • Excerpt: "I bought an IBM Thinkpad 240 at about half price and in new condition from Dabs.com. At first, I was very pleased with it. I magaed to get Linux running along with windows and it was all fine and dandy. However, soon the screen started flickering, and it soon got very bad. I rang IBM and they said that yes, it was covered and yes, they would fix it. I recived it back in about a week with a completely new screen. Not bad! However, despite being ...
  • Pros: Small, light, fast, cheap

  • Excerpt: "I recently won an IBM Notebook 240. Not having much experience with computers, I found everything easy to set up and use. The instructions were very clear on how to set up and use the special functions. A big plus is the free 24/7 800 IBM help desk number if you have any problems. The 240 notebook is very light weight and compact. Thus the 240 makes a great travel notebook by taking up less space (such as air travel.) But yet it is very durable. Another ...
  • Pros: Lightweight Compact Trac - Point
  • Cons: none

  • Excerpt: "I recently bought the IBM 240, and i thought WOW. Its size and weight are incredible. In fact, these were one of the main factors, why I chose to buy this particular notebook. All the peripherals are so thin and compact, that you do not think of them as being a hassle to carry around with. No, quite the opposite actually. The quality of the screen and the internal modem are fantastic. However, i do not recommend this laptop for people who like to ...
