My work computer is an IBM Thinkpad T42 - I think it has a 1.7ghz or 1.6ghz M in it but I forget. Doesn't much matter for a work comp I guess. It's nice because I can connect to all the systems and servers at work anywhere I have an internet connection :)

I'm guessing everything at work is on a VLAN? That's always a cool thing to have access to your work stuff anywhere you go! :)
