It was a hard choice for me between the Thinkpad and getting something 
with an AMD64 chipset.

The AMD64 won.  I have an HP zv5000 with an AMD 3700+ processor.  The 
Thinkpad would have cost me about $1000 more as well.

My HP had one of those as well.  It now resides just above the flush 
handle on my toilet.  (Thanks to Keith Lofstrom for the idea.)
