FS: X62 500GB SSD, 8GB RAM, SXGA+

#1 Post by Qing Dao » Sun Mar 08, 2020 2:17 am

First of all, I know I will regret selling this. I bought the X62 board new in October 2016. I put it into an X61 donor and added an SXGA+ screen, a 500GB MSATA SSD, and 8GB RAM. It has worked fine since day 1. The problems with this computer are as follows:
1. The bezel around the screen on the top right doesn't sit correctly. There is a gap that I can't close. You can see it easily in one of the pictures.
2. The screen on the top right corner has a problem. The top plastic matte layer got peeled back a little (oops). On a dark background it is visible as some lighter colored dots. On a lighter background it is pretty much invisible. You can see it in the pictures.
3. The screen's brightness is not what it used to be. It is great for use at night or indoors without bright light coming in through the windows, but if you want to use it somewhere bright, might want to replace the ccfl bulb.

I'm selling it because I end up spending more time using my 2017 13" Macbook Pro than this because I like Mac OS A LOT more than Windows. Specs are very similar between the two, and if it weren't for the OS, I would choose the X62 over the Macbook. Some people complain about the fan noise on the X60/X61/X62, but really it is better than on my Macbook.

I'm not sure what to ask for this, so I'll say $1000 and see if there is any interest. I'm located in the US.

I think that's all you need to know. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

WOW
that's a very clean lid! How did you manage that?

I'd be interested in just the X62 board if you decide you would part out - let me know!

Otherwise good luck with sale. Looks like a great machine

Just FYI you can probably hackintosh the X62 if you like macOS that much. There's also a touchpad mod out there if you want to add that.

I bought the nicest looking X61 chassis I could find. I think that the lid was re-sprayed somehow by the seller I bought it from. I just get the feeling. I've treated it very gently.

I have tried to "Hackintosh" other things, including a desktop I built for the express purpose. I'm good with hardware but not with software.
