Looking for a thinkpad T420si, hopefully located in the EU.

Feel free to PM me if you happen to have one for sale. Cheers!

T420si? Why specifically do you want the "i" model?
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.

Mostly for its "bad" factor :mrgreen:

Do you want "Bad" because "I wanna be cool and bad guys are cool"?

Or "I'm a masochist and want a slow, non-upgradable laptop"? :lol:

I could understand getting a T420i, but it might just be easier to get a T420s and then finding a T420si clearplate.

Does the si clear plate exist? AFAIK they only say T420s and just have an i3.

Judging by an eBay listing for an i3 T430s that just says T430s on the bezel, I would think not. OP can probably create one though.

Does anyone know how clearplates are made in the first place?
