As per the forum rules, you must post an asking price.

Best of luck with the sale of this Frankie.

Sounds like a great deal even with the minor screen blemishes, you could never build one with these specs for this price even if you had the T60 already.

That is a pretty good deal. By the way, nice 318is.

Perhaps I'm confused... but wouldn't a T61p board have the Quadro FX 570M instead of the NVS 140M? Sounds like a T61 board.

It does, and if the GPU is NVS140M it IS one as well.

An excellent deal nevertheless...

EDIT: You are correct. I was incorrectly thinking that the T61 model had Intel integrated graphics, but that is not the case. The original post has been corrected. Thanks.

Anyway, the goods are still for sale. I will be listing them on eBay this week as well (at a higher price). $400 is a special price for TP forum members since this place has been so helpful over the years.

If I may offer a word of unsolicited advice here:

Do bear in mind that PayPal has extended the timeframe during which the buyer can open up a dispute for an item not being as described to 180 days. You could very easily run into someone who'll abuse the laptop for two months, overclock the living daylight out of it, blow the planar and return it, all for the cost of shipping on their end.

Custom systems - as well as expensive ones - tend to attract scammers and dimwits, both of which can be dangerous.

My $0.02 only...

Good luck.

OP would be getting interest in that two months from the money paid by the buyer.

So it's shipping + two months interest should be the correct amount.

with this being custom-made, i don't see how paypal would side with someone 180 days later for electronics failing.   clearly state "custom-made system, selling as-is, no warranty express or implied" and the seller should be covered against a dispute.

With PP siding with the buyer 98% of the time in my experience, I could see a huge problem arising for the seller. Not to mention that all the buyer has to do is issue a chargeback on their credit card...

My point being: I wouldn't feel comfortable selling such a system to a complete stranger over the Net. But it's not my unit to begin with.

I agree that when selling on ebay you have no say as to who it goes to. Selling in our forum is a complete joy in comparison and you get to discuss with the buyer/seller before the deal is made.

This is definitely a great deal on a system with these specs, I'm certain one could not be built for this price.
