Yes I did also recently pick up a T1 105 and I agree it is a much easier
machine to get along with.

Yeah I got my T1 105 with 1GB installed but the tradeoff was the
faceplate was missing and all the drives (including optical) were ripped
out. I popped in a 73GB 10KRPM Ultra320 drive and it worked just fine
(installed OS via "boot net:dhcp" & tftp method)
