The 240X is higher specced than the 240. The one I am looking at is a P3 500.
The size of it is what drew me to it. I do like ThinkPads. I loved the 600 I had, amazing and quite fast for its specs.

I had a thinkpad 240 a long time ago and therefore haven't used any
recent distrubutions on it. I think it had a Celeron 300MHz processor.
I was using it with SuSE Linux 7.3 and 8.0, possibly up to 8.1 before
I sold it. From what I remember it wasn't very fast.
The 240 is small and has a small screen so you might be better off
buying a 2nd hand netbook as it would be a lot faster and will run
such recent distrubutions as UNR, etc.
