Up to day 4GB Memory/500 GB Travelstar /Windows 10 1709/office 32bit installed, conventional display (UXGA).
Memory Upgrade is easily done to 2x4GB /8GB memory.

Machine is intended to come with:
(1) a already in its display casing/cover installed, ready to exchange LED-Display (UXGA), unused, new, (from the above mentioned)
(2) a spare CPU 9500 or even a x9000, both are able to run in this board.
(3) a spare Systemboard
(3) Dockingstation (the "larger one") and two ac-Adapter,

let me know, if You are interested. I sold mine earlier this Year. For this machine and spares I should like a good price.

I'd also considering my FHD IPS modded T420 which is in 9/10 shape for the right price. Rare T420 (non-s) FHD mod, although the sacrifice to having it is the fact that it does glitch.
