Sorry for the off-topic reply but you're still collecting them?! I'd have thought you have a stack of ThinkPads to your heart's content by now. :thumbs-UP: I guess for some people it's a lifelong obsession :lol:. That is a fairly powerful desktop replacement though, it could be put to great use, and it would be really fast if you maxed out the RAM. :)

well, i DO have more thinkpads that sense but i kinda like the display and specs.. not up to date one how good or not that machine is..
still have not heard back from the seller..
don't know what the touchpad mod is since i hate touchpads and never use them..
EDIT: AND, since the seller has not replied to my PM but HAS read it i guess my offer has been rejected.. :)
which i good 'cuz the redhead wife will not have any ammunition for further discussions on too many computers and not enough cash.. :oops:

The X240/T440/T540/W540 came with the so-called clunkpad, one pad without any trackpoint/mouse buttons.
The mod replaced the clunkpad with a proper touchpad and the 3 missing buttons.
After the mod, you can still disable the touchpad.

This. No idea what they were thinking with that clunkpad.

32 GB RAM is the max it can take and it's already there. :)

Ok this is my first time thinking of buying here and i have to ask how safe is it to buy from here?
If you have a history on Ebay, why didn't you post it on ebay?

Thanks

if you are in lebanon can you get a safe delivery there..?
would shipping make it uneconomical..?
as for a safe transaction you can always find an escrow holder..

I am not shipping to Lebanon, my friend will be in Dallas next week for 3 weeks so i was thinking of shipping it to him and he will bring it back with him.
On a side note, i sent him a pm and is still in my outbox...guess he didn't open it yet
