Re: Searching for old Thinkpads is a royal pain now.

The bigger problem is the supply of old laptops on ebay seems to have dried up compared to 5 years ago. While true, many forum members still list in the Marketplace section of this forum. Perhaps you will still find some of the older builds listed there. As inspired by RBS (see right below this for...

Manual bump to reflect lowered price: 130 --> 90 USD.

I don't think I will be able to lower the price further, though.

Sorry, didn't notice this mistake earlier.

I searched for the correct UXGA model LQ141U1LH02, and there were no obvious results for sale entries.
