FS: x40 w/ 2x 8GB SLC CF + docking station

#1 Post by mnamnouri » Sun Feb 11, 2018 3:22 pm

Bought refurbished in 2006, used as my main laptop. In 2011 I installed the 2x CF cards that made a huge difference. In 2013 I started to need a bit more CPU power, so I used it as an audio source to feed my home audio setup. Since I no longer need it fo that it has been sitting in storage for past two years. There is nothing wrong with it, just the CPU is not powerful enough to handle the modern Web anymore.

This used to be my first Thinkpad and all the following Thinkpads I used seemed somewhat cheaper compared to the x40.

It's a X40, 1.4 Dothan 256 MB RAM on board and 1GB in the slot.
in a very good shape. The surface of the keyboard keys is quite worn (the keys are shiny), but there are no mechanical issues with the keyboard. The lid has one deeper scratch.

I replaced the 1.8" drive with an Addonics dual CF adapter that has two industrial 8GB SLC cards from Samsung. They have very high IOPS for a CF. It takes only 35 seconds from pushing the power button to opening a browser (using Lubuntu). See for yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZG_qwuyKNU

Included is a docking station with DVD reader nad PATA adapter, including a 80GB PATA drive.

Will sell for shipping costs to somebody who has better use for it than letting it sit in storage.
Shipped from the Czech Republic, EU.
