I'm getting rid of the last of my 4:3 ThinkPads.
Sad, I know.
But it's not sad for you. You, oh lucky forum reader, can get what many consider one of the best ThinkPads ever made: a well-specc'd ThinkPad T61. Best of all? It's got an Intel GPU
, so you don't have to worry about the infamous NVIDIA GPU issues that plague most SXGA+ T61s.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 4GB (2x2GB) (maximum of 8 GB)
WLAN: Intel 6200
WWAN: none (upgrade available, PM for details)
HD: none (options available, PM for details)
optical: either SATA HD caddy or DVD drive, your choice
GPU: Intel X3100
display: 14.1" SXGA+ (1400x1050)
battery: 9-cell, aftermarket (reliable third party brand, SANYO cells, still under warranty)
dock: Advanced Mini Dock w/ keys
adapter: 90 W
keyboard: US English
Other neat features? It's had the Middleton BIOS mod applied to it, so it takes any WLAN/WWAN card you throw at it (hence why it's got a 6200 in it now) and supports the full SATA II port speed (3Gbit/s). Oh, yeah, despite looking like the T60, the T61 has a plastic lid cover over a magnesium frame (i.e. a roll-cage.) This makes the lid strong. Really strong. Like, you-can-stand-on-it strong. (But you shouldn't...) This is awesome if you travel a lot, and it's saved this particular notebook from harm on at least one occasion.
There is one flaw however: the hinges have a bit of play to them. This is pretty common in T61s, but yeah, it's there. That's not to say that they're loose -- they'll certainly hold the screen open during use just fine -- just that there is about 1/2" of travel before the hinge itself moves. This is probable due to fatigue of the in-lid hinge bindings, but since it never really bothered me that much I didn't ever replace the hinges.Price
Asking $225. Price is variable depending on what extras you want (although I'd really prefer to sell with the dock and adapter as I don't need either for anything else...) Upgrades are also available, so PM if you have something in mind.Shipping
