FS: FREE ThinkPad T41

#1 Post by ThinkRob » Sat Oct 08, 2016 11:17 am

I've got a 14" ThinkPad T41 that I'm giving away. It's in great cosmetic shape (8.5/10) with a great keyboard, palmrest, case, etc. but there's one problem:

The screen is wonky. Sometimes you boot it and the screen is dead. Other times it works but everything's this weird and gray-ish kinda inverted look (like you're looking at a TN panel from way off-center.)

Aside from that it works great as far as I can tell. I think it has Intel graphics, but don't quote me on that. Hinges are nice and tight, and keyboard feels fine (though obviously it's pretty much untested...)

No drive.

This would be a great parts machine to anyone who needs one, or if you can fix it you've got a great-condition T41.

Yours for free, just pay shipping.

First one to contact me gets it.

Toy: Miata!

Could you post the MTM Type number? The display issue reads like a Southbridge or GPU BGA issue to me. :??:

Is there a battery included? What's it's condition? How about RAM?
