T500 arrived today in good condition. Hinges have less play than my last T500 and they are tight.

Keyboard is a mess. I ordered a new German keyboard from Germany a few minutes ago.

Screen is nice and bright and everything works as it should. It needed some cleaning up, but it looks good.

Windows 7 refused to update so I went through the lengthy procedure to force the download and installation.

Working on 181 of 195 updates currently.

Does anyone remember what causes this Windows update jam-up where nothing is found and the updater runs for hours on end? I left this run overnight (10+ hrs) and still it did not update until I fixed it.
