I got a Thinkpad T61 back in May/June that had 4gig factory-installed.
Dual core, but only 2.2GHz - I could've gotten a faster proc, but I
wasn't willing to pay the price. I did splurge on a 120gbyte 7200rpm
drive, though. Came with SUSE on it, too, but I've got it dual booting
with FreeBSD 7 amd64. Works great, except that the native FireFox and
all other web browsers I've tried crash (no core, nothing, it just
disappears) on the javascript on a lot of web sites, including gmail.
Haven't had the time to pursue that one very much, though I've asked
on this list a few times.
