SOLD W500 T9900 3.06 GHz

#1 Post by JohnD. » Sat Jul 21, 2012 4:42 pm

Hi Guys/Girls,

I am selling most of my ThinkPads and this one I purchased in May of this year and it's been collecting dust as most of my collection is doing.

I am asking $400 which includes shipping via FedEx Ground and insurance. Payment via PayPal.

Type: 4058-CTO 09/09 It has the COA sticker on the bottom and it is readable.

Here is the information I gathered today since it is a CTO machine.

Screen Resolution: 1920x1200 Screen Size: 15.4 Inches

CPU: T9900 3.06 GHz 6 MB Cache Core2Duo Penryn

Battery: Sanyo 192 Cycle Count Full Charge Capacity: 63.03 Wh Design Capacity 84.24 First Used Date: 2009-09

Disks: 3 Recovery DVDs from Lenovo, 2 Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Upgrade Disks from Lenovo

RAM: 4 GB Dual-Channel DDR3@532MHz (7-7-7-20)

Motherboard: GM45/GM47 Chipset

Bios: Version 6FET92WW (3.22)

Graphics: ATI Mobility FireGL V5700 (512 MB) and Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family. From reading the w5xx
forums I believe this machine has switchable graphics because it was a CTO machine.

Hard Drive: 200 GB Hitachi SATA-1 1.5Gb/s

DVD Drive: DVD Writer Matshita UJ862AC

Wireless: Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN

Ethernet: Intel 82567 Gigabit

Bluetooth (I don’t know what the version is), Integrated Camera (I don’t know what the resolution is)

The above information was gathered by using the program recommended to me by ThinkPad Lover (Daniel) called Speccy made by Piriform (which makes CCleaner).

Genuine Lenovo 90W 20V AC Adapter

Fingerprint reader
3 USB Ports (I am not sure if they are 1.1 or 2.0 ports)
1 Display Port (I am not sure if the port is a full one or a mini one)
1 Modem

I have printed out and spiral bound the W500 (T500) Hardware Manual with a clear cover and black back.

I will use the recovery disks to re-install Vista, then use the upgrade disk to install Win7 Professional 64-bit.

The spacebar has no wear on it. The left button (on the track pad) is worn and the right button (on the track pad) a tiny bit worn. There is a very faint vertical line on the left side of the keyboard bezel about 4” long. There is another faint line (horizontal) going across the track pad area, about 2 inches left of the left button of the track pad, and about 2-3 inches right of the right button of the tack pad. The keyboard is clean, there are not worn keys. There are three vertical scratches (3” inches) in the middle, near the battery on the lid, there are four diagonal scratches near the vertical scratches. There are various other smaller scratches around the lid. Also it looks like someone sneezed (various of times) on the lid since there are small circle spots on the lid.

Let me indicate that the scrathes are like if took your fingernail and ran it across the lid.

Thank you for looking at my machine.

John

Screen Resolution: 1920x1200 Screen Size: 15.6 Inches

Graphics: ATI Mobility FireGL V5770 (512 MB)
Hey John,

nice machine :thumbs-UP:

T9900 3.06 GHz WUXGA 1900x1200, with the ATI FireGl V5700. I'm just graduating from the 256MB ATI FireGL V5250 of the T60p's myself. For me 512mb V5700 provides nice graphics indeed.

I've had my W500 a few months now. It's a real work horse. Mine has a T9400 C2D 2.53GHz processor, WSXGA+ LCD and it's plenty powerful for me. I can imagine yours with the even faster T9900 and WUXGA :wink:

Couple small details- don't you mean 15.4" LCD instead of 15.6" ? My W500 is 15.4" as I thought they all were. And you put "ATI FireGL 5770" but shouldn't that be "ATI FireGL 5700" ?

As for the webcam, it's probably 1.3 MP (Megapixels), as it is on mine, and seems to be on other W500's.

Good luck with the sale,
Daniel.

Wow, that's a *fantastic* price for an absolute beast of a machine.

The screen is indeed 15.4". The newer 16:9 screens are 15.6".

This machine definitely has switchable graphics.

I was wary about WUXGA until I started using the machine... but as soon as I started to use the machine, I instantly loved it. Mine has the LG panel. The viewing angle on this one is surprisingly good.

The W500 is the last great high-end ThinkPad IMO... just needs a T61-era keyboard.

Very tempting, wow. Any warranty left on it?

Thank you Daniel for clearing the issue with the screen size and the graphics chip!

Thank you Jeff for double verifing that the unit does have a 15.4 inch screen. I agree a t6x keyboard would be a nice fit for the w500.

Norris, the machine does not have a warrenty.

Price reduced to $400. Added that the scratches are like you ran your fingernail across the lid.
