Picked up a W541 for $600

#1 Post by redmouse » Fri Jun 08, 2018 1:36 am

Thinkpad W541, Window 10, 32 ram 1600MHz memory, 512 GB SSD, 3k screen, Intel Core i7-4810MQ 2.80GHz, NVIDIA Quadro K1100M

Was this a good price? Seems to be the average price on Ebay.

4k videos, adobe premiere, pano stitching, needed a reasonable solution, seems to be performing well so far. Without too much research, right off the bat I didn't think I could find a laptop for under $1k with 32 GB of RAM memory and 3k resolution. Plus I am a IBM thinkpad believer, tested proven over 4 decades.

I have owned 4 thinkpads over the last 4 decades, each lasting a decade each :D . A few garbage dell, compaq, sony, and asus in between.

Ok missed counted by 1 decade 😂, 1992 was when I first bought a IBM desktop , I was in high school. So 26 years to be more accurate. AOL, 56k modems, Mirc, and the easiest online dating hookups.
