As subject; Is there any way to check if the T61p nVidia GPU is from a 'bad batch'? E.g., can I ask a seller for the serial number and somehow find the manufacture date on the Lenovo website? Alternatively, is that listed anywhere on the laptop? If the manufacture date of the laptop is beyond a certain point in time is it 'likely' it does not have the 'bad batch'?
I know it might not be possible to tell 'for sure', but I'm looking to determine if there is a way to narrow down how 'likely' it is a particular model is affected.
