http://www.costcentral.com/proddetail/Lenovo_ThinkPad_R51e_1844/18445GU/H17160/pricegrabber/

if it weren't for the damn trackpoint :(:(

I've been looking for something like that for my mother where she wouldn't need to have an external mouse. Pretty sweet deal though.

Ok. Gotcha! :thumb This is an cheap one my FIL got for the office but we bring it home. If we (er. . the office) takes care of this one and can put it to good use, then he'll buy a better one later. I'll mention about the track ball for the next one. He doesn't know anything about laptops either. :laughing

now just to network the laptop
to the home computer so I get
get my pics off of it! :rant
