That's a nice build you got here!

I wonder why is it so cheap? Did the prices go 1.5x down during the last two years? (This one seems better than one you sold two years ago for $450)

Dunno. I just put a $ on it. Been cleaning out my office and not feeling like getting the most out of it. I think the last one was a T430s with classic keyboard conversion with i7 and Thinderbolt. That one was an awesome unicorn!!

It’s an awesome machine, I just need to clear out the old before getting any more new!

That one went to me (not through the forum), and was featured in my "Lenovo's last classic Thinkpads" picture tour and history article. I'm looking at it as I'm typing this post. :mrgreen:

Indeed you sold a similar T420s back then, a few months prior to our trade, and I think maybe penartur was the buyer. :D That was how I knew who to go to for these mods. :wink:

Open to offers or parting out/barebones. Display is the draw - it's the best AUO 1080p display I've ever seen.
