Just came across this ad at eBay for a T42. A little hard to believe this would sell at this price. I just copied the ad particulars, no link. The 'Buy It Now' price is even strange ... looks like they really don't want to part with it.
Maybe if it was new in a box, still sealed, never opened ... I don't know.

Bit early for April 1st.
If I were interested (but I'm not), I would maybe pay $25 incl. shipping, but that's it...

According to that, my T520 is probably well north of 2,000$. Thanks for the get-rich-quick scheme!
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.
The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

Some people just have no clue of what they're selling

Interestingly, here in the UK at least, T42 Thinkpads have almost entirely disappeared from Ebay. So it is not impossible that prices may start rising, though not perhaps to the optimistic level of the machine referred to.
