My first Thinkpad, but not my first IBM.

#1 Post by tipo33 » Mon Oct 08, 2012 9:14 pm

I'm still new here, but everyone has been very welcoming, and answered all my questions about shopping for a Thinkpad. So I would like to share with you me recent aquasition:

It's a 15" 4:3 T60, I am planning a Flexview swap ( it's XGA :( ) and a T61 motherboard when I get some money.
As you can tell I'm a bit of a keyboard enthusiast, I am very happy that the build quality of the model M carried over to the Thinkpad.
Kudos if you can name the typewriter :)
I also like the fact that my laptop matches my desktop.

See if you can put a QXGA Flexview in there :D

I think I'm going to put in a SXGA+ for the time being, as it is more affordable. I love the SSK, it is my current daily driver, at least until I finish bolt modding, and teensying my 122 key temninal model M. The typewriter is indeed a wheelwriter, with the same clicly sound and feel as the M's :)

Nice T60, as well as a great collection of Model Ms! Definitely a great match; I've got a 1390120 I still use daily. :D
