IBM's ThinkPad notebook PCs, introduced in 1992, have been widely recognised as industry models for design and engineering. This year, the new ThinkPad T43 is expected to raise the bar on secure business computing. It features Rescue and Recovery 2.0 with Antidote Delivery Manager, a set of software tools contained in an embedded, pre-boot emergency system. This is said to provide one-button relief from a broad range of common PC problems, even if the main operating system has already been corrupted by a worm or virus. It also helps a user retrieve and install virus updates quickly, or have the PCs swiftly removed from the corporate network. The T43 will be available in Hong Kong in early March.
