My dad is looking to get a laptop, of course I showed him the ibooks and powerbooks but, "I don't know apples!" I have been tring to convince him for years that Apple makes a much better computer and package blah, blah, blah... My dad would just use it for word prosessing, internet, old people bisness stuff. He is looking at the IBM T Series 41. It looks pretty cool. I would be using it too some of the time so I don't really want him to get the really slow 64Mb ram model. But are there any other good laptop manufactures out there or any models you can suggest? Thanks!
