I bought on ebay the ultimate T410: according to the S/N, it has the LG 1440x900 screen and 512mb Nvidia 3100m Switchable Graphics. Top of the line i5 560m, needs RAM and a drive. Can't wait for it to arrive.
Now I wonder what would happen if I bought a W510's i7 quad core and put that in*. Probably the stupidest idea ever.
*Apparently impossible? According to http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=91494
, even though looking at eBay pictures, the pins look the same as those of my i3 370m. This notebookreview thread http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads ... ty.438978/
also suggests that the Clarksfield i7 720QM fits in the same socket as Arrandale T410 cpus. W510 was also equipped with normal Arrandales or Clarksfield quad cores according to Thinkwiki.
Final edit: it has been done but unsuccessful, according to the comments of this poorly titled video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhDucuwN22o
