I have pick up a T61 nvidia nvs140m with 08/08 ( bottom of laptop). Is there any other labels on the laptop to confirm the production date?

I have install the nvidia driver and it look great on the WSXGA+ (1680×1050) screen.

Thanks.

Does the MTM type number on the label on the bottom match that in BIOS? If so there's a good chance the MB have not been replaced. You could check the FRU on the MB and see if it's a Peryn board. Having said that, these machines are over 8 years old and still runs good. They've more than out live their expected life expectancy and can be had for a song. Use it, enjoy it and don't worry to much about it.

With the MTM and serial # you should be able to go on Lenovo and check the production date. I think the check warranty status is the best way. You can also verify the installed screen type this way by drilling down to replacement parts.

Or check the production-date on the nVidia GPU-chip.
Check the picture on my website: http://theboardroom.info/t61motherboard.html
The 1021A2 indicates: Year 2010, week 21
