Well, guys, the G41 Thinkpad had a bad cat5 jack, and the
"Customer Support" chap at portefix.com had not replied to two
(polite) letters. The site has a [Canadian] BBB logo; that's
the only reason I risked dealing with them.
I've already taken Step #1: writing to the Quebec BBB. See
what happens. Meanwhile, beware of buying anything from this
tiny (2-person) dealer. (*sigh*)
