ThinkPad T61 With ATI Graphics?

#1 Post by nightninja96 » Fri Aug 17, 2018 10:11 am

Hello, I was browsing for an FX570m T61 motherboard, and I came across a T61 motherboard with ATI graphics, I never knew that The T61 came with ATI graphics. I have done some research and came up with nothing. So, is this thing legitimate?

Aliexpress...really ? :roll:

No T61/p was ever sold with an ATi graphics card, regardless of the target market. Period, end of story.

It's a motherboard.

I couldn't be bothered to zoom in the picture to verify which system it belongs to.

Your money your call by all means, but someone would have to have a pretty big gun pointed at my kids to make me buy *anything* from Aliexpress...

LOL, by no means will I buy that thing. It's such an oddity I had to take a look at it. Also, on a different note, do you know where I can get a good fx570m motherboard?

Post a WTB (want to buy) ad in the forum's Marketplace. You'll likely pay more than you would on shady auction sites, but it's pretty difficult to put a price tag on one's own piece of mind IMO.

Happy shopping.
