I thought the 4:3 models were only Euro models. That one is coming from Texas!
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

DOS Licence? Ahaha... Wow! Now I know what the 4:3 screen was used for now.

SXGA+ 14.1" T61 :?:
According to the bottom panel picture in the listing,
the T61 in question is a "Type": 8889-01U
According to http://tp.krelay.de/index.php?type=8889-01u:
Model: T61
Type: 8889-01U
Specifications: T7300(2GHz), 1GB RAM, 80GB 5400rpm HD, 14.1in 1400x1050 LCD, 128MB nVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M, CDRW/DVD,
Intel 802.11agn(n-disabled), Bluetooth, Modem, 1Gb Ethernet, UltraNav, Secure chip, Fingerprint reader, 6c Li-Ion, WinXP Pro
I previously contacted the seller and asked
if the item is a 14.1" 1400x1050 T61 ...
The replied that "No it is not ..."
I replied with a close-up pic of the bottom panel "Type" code
and the above krelay.de link ...
The replied by blocking me from further questions :eek: :!:

The item in question seems (to me) to be
an item that would suit my purposes ...
and listed @ an acceptable Price+$hipping amount ...

Last week the item auction ended with no bidders ...
The seller (has) relisted the item for auction ...
and again ... there are (still/atm) no bidders ...

Is it likely that the item is a SXGA+ 14.1" T61 :?:
If I bid on the item item, might the seller refuse to accept my bid :?:

It's likely, BUT...
- the screen looks rather dark
- the laptop was made in 08/04 (2008/April), when they still had bad GPUs on the nVidia mobo
- BIOS cannot tell you the LCD's resolution
- if a previous owner swapped the LCD for XGA, you are "schtuffed"
- there is no chance to return it for "not as described"
- proceed at your own risk

I pm'ed the eBay seller of some Intel SLAZ3 Core 2 Extreme Processor X9000 CPUs
who replied with the following :arrow:

"They have been pulled from testing working units Dell Precision M6300.
Hope this helps you make a decision.
Thank you for your time and interest
"
I'm wondering: :arrow:
what is the likelihood that those X9000 CPUs
are GENUINE Intel X9000 CPUs :?: :eek: :??:

"Be careful buying an x9000, most are fake knock-offs from china,
and if you do find an original it may have burned out transisters from overclocking.
When I source them I buy original workstations from corps and
remove the cpu since it's the only safe way to get one.
