I'm the raider of the lost ark today!

#1 Post by Thinkpad4by3 » Mon Oct 09, 2017 8:19 pm

I found another brand-new Thinkpad today, and its an X301!!

It has a few blemishes from being in a closet for 7 years but not too shabby nonetheless.

Proof for it being brand-new? A factory sticker right on the webcan. There is also one on the Lenovo thing on the front. Who would leave 2 stickers on their laptop?

And of course, 1 cycle on the battery. 85% of design capacity!

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.

Nice condition and even with use the X301 will holdup.

An SSD with a light distro including the Dual IDA mod and it will still perform most tasks YMMV. Remember to calibrate the display. I have 6GB of ram in mine but probably 4GB is enough. Mine sits comfortably on my lap and is still a pleasure to use.

Time to move Spring-cleaning to Autumn.
Do a proper cleaning, you might find Atari, Commodore, Sinclair, Amstrad and/or what not!
