The T42 used to be the standard workstation at all of IBM's internal callcenters, I bought mine while working for them. It is still running, 5 years later. Solid, solid laptop. Batteries and accessories widely available online.

This model has been out a while and you can now pick up a refurb model which would make a great starter solid reliable laptop. Highly recomended, if it wasn't for the fact I have had to have a new jack fitted. Oh, and my spacebar is hanging off on an otherwise great to type with keyboard.
