IBM Notebook with biometric scanner

Looking to lock up your notebook and its data? IBM is offering you a new choice: its already attractive Thinkpad T42 series now integrates a fingerprint reader. And it will only cost you about $50 more than a similarly-configured T42 without the biometric scanner.

The systems will ship on October 19, starting at $1699. For that, you get a 1.6-GHz &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/comp/2002/04/15/27631.html ' target=_blank>Intel Pentium M 725 CPU, a 14.1-inch screen, 40GB hard drive, 256MB of RAM, a combination DVD-ROM and CD-RW drive, and Windows XP Professional. You also get good connectivity options, including gigabit Ethernet, 802.11a/b/g wireless, and Bluetooth. This configuration of the T42 weighs about 4.5 pounds, according IBM.

A higher-end system, which sells for $2349, upgrades you to a 1.8-GHz Pentium M 745 processor, 512MB of RAM, and a 15-inch screen. Operating system and connectivity options remain the same. These units do weigh a little more: 5.3 pounds, according to IBM.

Rated battery life for both configurations ranges from about 5 hours with the 6-cell included battery to over 7 hours for the 9 cell optional battery ($179), reports PC World.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the Trump regime "sought options to strike Iran," falsely saying it may pursue a course no previous US leadership considered. More on this below.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
