Sorry, no commercial sellers allowed here without asking Bill
For sale is a 15.4" T61p systemboard with a 256Mb nVidia fx570m graphics chip.
This particular chip is sought-after since it was manufactured in the 4th week of 2011, well past the last manufacture date of the infamous faulty nVidia chips, which spawned the post 08/08 dated machine hunt.
This board originally was refurbished stock for a regional IBM centre.
The excitement about these boards is that the graphics chip has 256Mb of video ram, twice as much as the non-workstation class T61's with nVidia nvs140m gpu's and also the 14.1" standard screen T61p. This can have a big impact on performance and this chip can deliver the performance of a W500, but without the concerns of that GPU chip failure raised on the German thinkpad forum, and with the ability to make the most powerful 14.1", 15.0" and 15.4" frankenpads.
You can use a penryn C2D in this or any other T61 systemboard, but using Middleton's modified BIOS means you don't have to press the ESC key on startup - he undoes that redundant CPU digital thermal sensor annoyance the same way he handles the mPCI card whitelist. It also uncripples the SATA bus, etc.
