For sale are three modified old ThinkPads:

(1) ThinkPad T420s with i7 10510U

Installed an HP ProBook motherboard in the old T420S chassis.

Specs:

i7 10510U/ MX250/ 16G/ 256G SM961 + 1T SATA SSD/ 1080p 14inch/ Camera/ ThinkLight/ NMB Keyboard/ 6cell Battery

Bugs:

Lid sensor doesn't work

Power button and ThinkLight button is on its left side, keyboard combo keys don't work


(2) ThinkPad X41 with i5 6300U

Installed a Panasonic CF-SZ5 motherboard in the old X40 chassis.

Specs:

i5 6300U/ 4G/ 512G SATA SSD/ QXGA 9.7inch/ Chicony Keyboard/ ThinkPlus Battery

Bugs:

Lid sensor doesn't work

No ThinkLight

Power button is on its right side, keyboard combo keys don't work

Turns off when plugged into power; feature of the ThinkLife power bank


These two are very hard to teardown, probably only a good fit for hardcore ThinkPad fans. Maybe this will also inspire some more similar mods as 51nb's no longer selling any new boards after the T700. BTW I also have a T50 just in case if anyone's interested.


(3) ThinkPad X60 with i5 8250U

Installed a 51nb X210 motherboard in the old X60 chassis.

Specs: Same w/ X210 with 8250U. Everything works as expected. Interested buyers might want to refer to this post: https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpadsforsa ... 60_case_w/


Price: 650 for the X40, 1500 for the T420s, 1500 for the X60. Bargains are welcomed. The shipment cost is 150USD. Ships from China.

Interesting mods, but personally ( note, this is just a personal opinion ) I would not have used a panasonic let's note to bump up a classic thinkpad.
Again personal opinion, but Let's Note and thoughbooks are on another level ( above ) thinkpads (the only issue they have, is that they can lose the finishing color)
