hi thanks for welcome. finally decided to dig it out today, thankfully the charger was with it too. fired it up and back lights of lcd display stayed on for about 5 seconds then went blank. it did make the window start-up sound so tilted it towards the sun and could see the display put in my password and it booted into windows.
actually in worse condition than I recalled, then I saw the wallpaper of my then 5yr old son. he is now 16. he would have been the last custodian of it. I suppose terraria was the last thing we used to play then the android pads and consoles took over. I would estimate it is about 20 devices ago in the household tech family tree.
few coffee rings on case lol. soft touch plastic going sticky, crack in battery case, crack on chassis by heatsink vent. I actually had that replaced once by Lenovo while it was under warranty. used the 24-7-4 super warranty thing that came with it. 4 hour repair or replacement where ever you are in the world.
seemed a bit sluggish then I remembered I put the ram in another old laptop that was in the drawer by it lol. I did put in a SSD drive when they were super expensive (over 500 quid I think). only 64gb so hardly any room for anything but made it super quick.
either way I'm not buying it's worth the rigmarole of selling it or even fixing it up. did take a few picks but can't see how to post em. it's number 125 so quite an early one. only 400 sent to UK apparently?

It's a fancy X61s.

Here is a short review.

Hopefully Bill is enjoying his Reserve Edition.
