Where to look for used Thinkpads in Singapore, Hongkong, and Taiwan?

#1 Post by Self_Propelled_Crane » Mon Mar 26, 2018 11:35 pm

I might go to Singapore, Hong Kong or Taiwan within the summer vacation on official business, but I'll also take time to look for used Thinkpads (T60 and T60p in particular). Can anyone suggest locations where I can search for 2nd-hand Thinkpads in these places?
Has plans to make a Frankenpad. Please sell a Thinkpad T60 or T60p with a 1600x1200 screen resolution to me. :D

Hong Konger here, that's what I've been wondering myself. The only second hand laptops in stores always seem to be Macs, and the only time I've seen a Used Thinkpad in a retail store is when someone apparently sold their company laptop to one of those "we take literally everything" stores next to the casinos in Macao. I'm going up to Shenzhen, they probably have them.

Singapore has the Carousel app, and I know some of my friends watch over the entries there like vultures.
I think I'll trust Geartooth for Taiwan/HK.

I did a double check on the SG Carousell, the only 15.0-inch Thinkpad T60 being sold there has a screen resolution of 1024x768, while the rest are batteries or docks for said Thinkpad series. :cry:

I guess I'll keep looking. XD

Oh boy, even my SXGA+ T60 is better than. RIP.

Advice: If such a computer with good specs will appear, it will also disappear just as quickly. Make yourself some sort of alert.

Good luck looking.

Did a Check on HK Caurosell, seems that there are quite a few Thinkpads on sale in the HK area. Too bad they are still annoyingly overpriced. 2700 for a X220 i5 whattt

I mean 2700 RMB is 421 USD. That's quite near what I want to sell my X250 FHD IPS.
