Q, FS: Modded T430 (Keyboard, Quad-Core, FHD IPS)

#1 Post by WarhawkCZ » Sat Mar 07, 2020 6:29 am

>>>SOLD<<<

Guys,
I received a new P1 gen2 yesterday and considering selling my t430. The t430 had been my daily driver last two years and it served me well. I am not in an urgent need of selling it. However, I don't want to be a one of the old grumpy men collecting old junk. For this reason, I am asking if someone would have use for the unit below.

T430
Core i7-3612qm
2x4GB ram
1x mSata 128GB SSD (Kingston?)
1x SATA 256 GB SSD (Samsung Evo 860)
1x 500GB WD Black 7200rpm
t420 English keyboard
FHD IPS display + adapter (no flickering issue)
2x Dock + 2x PS

Good condition, clean internals, new hinges, battery has 95% of the original capacity. I am thinking about 400 Eur shipped within the EU (+UK). Otherwise I just keep it as a backup (together with x220/x230, x61, x301, x220, t42p.... darn, I have a problem..).

PS: Yes, the price is high, but buy the cheapest t430 from ebay, add mods and you get this.

Edit:
Guys, I rushed home to get some natural light and took pictures. The laptop is as I removed it from the docking station.

A friend might be interested in this. What's the state of the keyboard? Any dead pixels on the screen? Exterior condition?

Some pics would be nice :)

I'd love to buy IPS FHD mode if you would be interested in selling it separately

Is it Intel or nVidia unit?
Too many thinkpads not enough time!

Hello Everyone, a small update:

# Shipping to Europe only (insured, DHL). I can't afford the hassle with customs.
# I'll take some pictures in the evening, stay tuned.
# Only selling the complete unit, but FHD mods are available on eBay! :)
# Does not have a Windows License Key embedded in BIOS. I can provide a W7 COA sticker from other chassis I have. This is what I have been using with the original Lenovo Preload. You just need to do the activation online (and archive the certificate later on).
# There is still 5% of me that does not want to sell this item. :mrgreen:
# This is an intel mobo. The FHD mod takes the place of the nVidia chip.

Yep, I know it's on eBay, but I'm a lazy b*stard. Ordering directly from Shenzen means waaaaiiiitng & waaaaaiiiitng ;) Besides then you need also to find a screen. And there's always a risk something won't work etc. Having the whole pre-tested set shipped from DE with a 3-4 days delivery was quite tempting ;) But sure, understood that you don't want to rip it open again.
