Quantity: 100 in total.

Price:

Official Price for Domestic Buyers: 4700 RMB (Incl. Optics Drive daughterboard 14inch->15inch, doesn't include fan); 4999 RMB (Daughterboard, fan, port baffle, mylar film)

My offers: 800 USD via PayPal incl. fee (T700 Board, Daughterboard, fan, port baffle, mylar film).

Full machine installation service is provided, with the choice of 14inch/ 15inch 4:3 machines and 15.4inch 16:10 machines.

Delivery via DHL: 150USD for most places.

Pre-Order starts now. The price might increase if you want a full T700 build, depending on your choice.

4. Warranty: 1-month free warranty, lifelong friendly repair assistance (need to pay two-way shipment cost and the cost of the parts)

5. Delivery: Around 6 months after the project started

6. Board will be designed by HOPE and his factory. Domestic payments in China will be handled by 17m19. The project is not relevant to 51nb officials.

Known as 4th batch T70 and T700 10th Gen before, this is the newest batch (and probably the last batch) of custom-made boards by HOPE and his team. Previously they decided to go with i7-10710U, but now as 11th gen became available on the markets and most buyers agreed to pay the extra cost, all T700 boards will be 11th gen i7 with the new graphics and two TB4 ports. Trying to bring the boards to worldwide ThinkPad fans and to get me some extra money to use in college, I'm providing the service to help you buy these boards (or full machines) and test them before shipment, and all you need to do is pay me via PayPal. I've already reserved 5 T700 boards, paid in full.

EC and BIOS source codes will not be provided as T700 will be developed by the same factory that designed previous all 51nb boards.

To avoid disputes, please beware that I'm not a part of 51nb and/ or the T700 development team :)

As this is a pre-order, please tell me if there's anything wrong or violating the forum rules and I'll be fixing them asap, thanks!

My only comment would be to use UPS or Fed-Ex for door-to-door shipping with their in-house Customs Brokering.

If using DHL to the States, once landed in this country and turned over to the USPS and the US Customs and Border Patrol the customer may never see their new T700. Ever.

Hi, thank you so much for the suggestions!
I've sold several modded ThinkPads before to the States using DHL and my buyers all received without problems haha. I would definitely consider that and ask some FedEx vendors :)

DHL is not the problem. USPS Customer Service, package processing before and after Customs processing, and US Customs entry is in the crapper with the excuse being COVID19.

Horror stories abound in Reddit about ISC's in Chicago, LA, Dayton, and NY.

Ship at your own risk if USPS gets their hands on your package coming into the US.
