I am selling my X61 since I only use my MacBook. I baby the thinkpad since day 1. The X61 spent most of its time sitting unused at home. It's in excellent 9.5/10 condition. LCD has no dead/stuck pixels. It has a brand new NMB keyboard replaced a month ago. CPU: Core 2 Duo Penryn T8300 2.4GHz Memory:...

Watching this 1080p clip on my X61 2.4GHz C2D (no Broadcom card) consumes about 60-80% total cpu time.

With firefox and latest flash beta I get about 30% when playing a 1080p trailer (transformer) on youtube on my X61 w/ T7250 (c2d 2.0Ghz). For 720p/1080p mkv files I get 20% cpu utilization with Media Player Classic HC. So far so good. The only thing is the palm rest area gets a bit hot, so maybe it...

Re: Broadcom Crystal HD (BCM70012)

DVD is not HD. DVD playback is a piece of cake for modern Core 2 Duo cpus. You don't need the Broadcom card at all. To really test the Broadcom HD card, I would suggest getting Adobe Flash 10.1 Beta 3 from: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html then play an 1080p video on YouTube and ob...

Re: X200s -- Flimsy screen, case flex, keyboard flex

Which X200s did you get? The one with 1440x900 LED backlit screen or 1280x800 CCFL?

I was quite shocked to watch the case flexing video. I recently got a brand new X61. There is no way I can make it flex like the X200s.
