Pretty good looking bunch. Looks like you take good care of your laptops. Let's hope the E-series in there can age as well as the T-series can!
Trying my hardest to collect Thinkpads, but college and being broke kinda gets in the way. However...

Thanks.

The T series were both lightly used, though the T500 had a cracked palm rest that I didn't notice until I added memory. I got a replacement with FPR for $12 on e-Bay and replaced the stickers too.

The T510 just has a little shine on the most used keys but nothing major. I'm going to replace the keyboard with a German layout and replace the bezel with a FPR model.

The E530 is the only one of the bunch bought new.

I hope if the Retro-pad becomes a reality that it comes with the 15.4" screen. I'm not liking 1600x900 too much on either the T510 or the E530. I guess it's OK for videos but I don't watch a whole lot except for YouTube clips now and then.

I have the T520 now. I upgraded it to16Gb of RAM, 500Gb SSD, and I kept the original 500Gb spinner and stuck it in the Ultrabay slot running Linux Mint. Then I bought an external DVD burner.

My young nephew was very excited to receive the E530 (you'll notice that computer is missing from my signature now). He did not have a computer up to this point. I reloaded the OS and installed all of the drivers as well as Photoshop, O&O Defrag, and CCleaner along with MS Security Essentials.

I helped him set up his Chrome browser and I didn't see much of him the rest of last evening.

I received a Gearhead wireless mouse for my T520 so that eliminates another wire. All I have now is a comm receiver and my DVD burner hooked up now. The comm receiver is going over to the T510. It stays plugged in to charge the batteries while it's on.

Not a village at all. Just a shot of the forest. I don't know where it's near, I grabbed it from the internet.

It is in either southern Bayern or Baden-Württemberg.

This is a new looking T510 i7 model I picked up in August. This is my Win 10 learning computer. I don't do much on this system.

It is in better than good condition, bordering on new. Must have spent a lot of time in a computer bag. I upgraded it to 8GB of memory and a Smart Card reader which I still haven't gotten to work for logging into Windows yet. Sort of on the back burner for now.

Nice machine though. I haven't had the keyboard out of it, but the keypresses feel very positive and firm. It is the best of the keyboards of all my T series machines. I thought of swapping it into the T520 but have not done so yet.

Nice one! Interesting to note is the touchpad sticker on T410/T510 has markings for the single finger scrolling zones, while if I remember correctly T520 doesn't.

No, the T520 has no such zone markings. I try to keep those touchpads looking new by using a mouse unless I'm sitting on the couch with my dog in front of the TV.

This is the keyboard from the T520. It is my main computer and there is quite a bit of shine on the keys. I'm ordering another new keyboard for this one very soon.

The second is the T510 keyboard still showing little use. Both keyboards have the German character overlays applied to the key tops.

I ordered a brand new German character keyboard for my T520 a few minutes ago. I hope it is one of the better keyboards with a firm, positive feel.

Very Nice looking machine. Seems to be perfect condition. I am a big fan of the T4xx series and have always considered them one of my favorites in the Thinkpad lineup.
