I got given this the other week, a filthy looking Thinkpad X61s. Compared to the T43, it looks terrible!
Under the lid was no better either
Started to clean it up, and use a live linux to get it booted and see what's on it. Imagine my surprise when I saw an OCZ drive listed in the options... Bit odd, but pull it out and voila, an ancient SSD! That'll save me £20 on this
After a good going over with many baby wipes and a microfibre, it's looking pretty minty under all the filth!
I got LXLE linux installed which works very well. And having used the keyboard for a bit, will just find a return key for the board it has! However this also shows the main issue with this
Specs, happy with that RAM amount, i don't need 8gb in it for what I'll use it for!
Happy with this for a freebie! I've used it last night, and to write all this and it's a fine little thing, just like the X60 Tablet which is always nice to use!
Jobs to do:
Battery - one it has is scrap
New LCD (will probably just swap another XGA into it as their quite cheap for a new panel, and I've researched upgraded screens, it looks quite involved!)
A good stripdown, this thing is quite warm, warmer than the X60T
And that's probably all it needs!
