Since I'm not very good at understanding system specs I'd appreciate some feedback on a just made purchase. I went looking for a used laptop at Amazon and ended up buying a still-in-the-box
IBM Thinkpad T42 (first produced, I think, in 2005) for 160 bucks. It runs XP Professional and here, let me get to the specs I don't understand. The processor is an Intel Pentium 1.70GHz, 592MHz with 512 MBs of RAM.
The machine runs fast and has good functionality. But I'd appreciate your take on this older machine and did it really retail for over $1,500 when it was new? Thanks much,
