That's just one out of many positive feedbacks ajkula66 has got, but I am the lucky man running his renowned R61fL. Fast, friendly & helpful. Too bad it's just to far away to drop by for a beer or two.

Also, I've traded lately with WVZR-1. Started with 1 unit worth $35, bought 3 units for $270. And they were better than expected. Not to mention Dave is fantastic guy that I'd be glad to meet sometime.

And there were three packs traded by me - my own units found their way to fourthree (frankie), kfzhu1229 (A31p for free) and jespen-mayer (box of parts for free). Everything was more than fine, I was even presented some extra money I have not asked for and did not expect to get.

You all guys make me check this forum everyday before I brush my teeth. Thank you all!

Just received a T420s from Edward Mendelson. All was as described (even better) and it arrived in original packaging in perfect condition. Just what I need, one more ThinkPad! Maybe time to sell an X220 to make room. Thanks Edward!

All the best to you; the trade was very quick and friendly so I would recommend trading with BigTony as well.

This is a quick message adding another voice to the chorus of thanks to RealBlackStuff for his amazing skill and expertise. I'll post more details later about the unit that RBS worked on, but here's a brief summary.

I bought a rare X240s, with the model number 1234567 listed on the label and in the BIOS. RBS suggested that the unit might be a prototype or one that belonged to someone at FoxConn or Lenovo, since that model number was obviously a spacefiller.

The unit was in beautiful shape, except that the rear (non-removable) battery was dead; I managed to replace that on my own. But I also wanted a backlit keyboard and wanted to replace the buttonless trackpad on the X240 series with a current three-button trackpad. I knew that was far beyond my abilities. RBS agreed to take on the job, and I'm glad he was the one who did it, because it ended up requiring Dremel work on the metal bezel used on the x240s (unlike the plastic one on the X240) - a detail that seems never to have been documented online. (There was a lot online about replacing the trackpad on the plain X240, but not about the X240s.) This also required research into drivers, and the use of the Group Policy Editor to prevent Windows 10 from installing the wrong drivers instead.

As you'd expect, RBS managed all of this with complete success and real elegance. I'm deeply impressed and grateful.

So here's a pint of the real black stuff to RealBlackStuff! (In case anyone needs this definition: "real black stuff" = Guinness Stout.)
