My current ThinkPad collection is as follows:
5, T420's, all with nVidia NVS4200M.All Win7Pro.
1, T420, with 16gb/ram, nVidia, and a 7200rpm, 1tb HDD, and Win7Pro. Right now, i5 2540, soon to be i72640, as I've recently received one I purchased from Ebay. This is my daily driver. Probably going to replace the HDD, with a 1tb SSD soon.
2, R400's/8gb/ram/500gb HDD.
2, T400's/8gb/500gb HDD.
1, Y410p/16gb/no HDD, Getting a 1tb SSD for it (not a thinkpad, actually).
1, T440p/16gb/ram, getting a 512gb SSD, and a backlit keyboard. HD4600 Graphics.
1, T420s/8gb/500gb HDD/HD3000 Graphics (Eww).
Will be picking up an i7 W530 soon with K2000m nVidia Graphics.
I like Lenovo's I've purchased almost every computer I have, broken, or "bare bones" off Ebay, with almost no problems. My current DD T420, has a total of $235 in it, including what I payed for it. Most of my T420 computers have around $170 in them each. Takes me about an hour to get one together from scratch.
I also have roughly 20 other various "consumer" grade laptops that I fix, and give to those who need a computer, but can't afford one, or sell VERY cheaply ($75, or so).
MCSE, and a Microsoft refurbisher.
I do "true" T420 refurbishes. Torn apart, cleaned up, upgraded in every way, ram, 8, 12, or 16gb, sometimes an i7 upgrade, 7200rpm 500gbHDD at least, Plasti-coated, new chargers/batteries, and keyboards if needed. High quality refurbs, with limited lifetime warranties for the locals!
It's good to be here, and I hope to learn, and share with Y'all!
What started me on Lenovo?
The Sims 2. The T420 runs it perfectly. I build custom "Simming" machines, just for people who play Sims. Particularly, Sims 2.
