The Lenovo Thinkpad T43 is one of a wide range of ThinkPads. The general body of the laptop is adaquate but not something I would choose for a personal laptop.
I use the T43 at work and, when networked are very good machines. they are well built and can take knocks and drops very well.
The technical specification of the machine is absolutely adaquate for my needs, i use the machine on a network of over 100,000 other machines, some desktops, but all of our laptops are T43's.
The scratch pad + 4 mouse buttons is very useful depending on what position is more comfortable when using the mouse, there is also an additional red joystick type mouse control in the keyboard (which I am not a fan of, but have seen people using effectively).
The keyboard is comfortable and quite satisfying to use, with slanted edges of keys and groups of F keys and others like a desktop keyboard. The extra laptop "Function" keys are very useful, including screen adjustment, CD eject, Sleep, Lock and more.
The screen is crisp, clear and adaquately adjustable. there are 'privacy screens' that can be attached to the T43 to restrict the viewable area of the screen to those sat next to you.
The T43 has many input ports - 3x USB, VGA, Network, headphone, microphone plus more. This laptop is a proper workhorse, easy to use, very strong and just keeps going (mine is 3 years old, and im not needing an updgrade, my personal laptop on the other hand, is 2 years old, and in a dire state)
