[USA-IL] [H] Good Condition T420s - NMB Keyboard, USB-C Modded, Dual Batteries [W] Local Cash

SALE PENDING

Hello everyone,

Up for sale I have a good condition T420s. The device has an i5-2520M, 1x4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 128GB SSD, and the 1600x900 display.

The device is overall in 8/10 condition. It has a few light scratches on the case around the corners. It has an NMB keyboard (the best manufacturer for tactility) in 9/10 condition with only light shine on the spacebar and a few other keys.

It also has two batteries: a 6 cell main battery and the ultrabay battery. Both are OEM and have capacities of approximately 100% and 90% respectively as reported by `upower -d` (I will run a recalibration to ensure this as the device has sat for some time).

I have replaced the power jack with a USB-C 20V adapter configured for a 90W adapter. A 3D printed plug has been installed as pictured to adapt the round bottom barrel port to USB-C. If you are a serious buyer and want me to revert it to the standard plug I can do so, but add a week for processing time.

One of the lid latches was missing, so I designed and printed a replacement lid latch in black PETG. It is essentially unnoticeable and looks nearly stock and was printed with 100% infill so it should be as strong as or stronger than the original part.

The device has been repasted for better thermal performance. At the moment, there is no operating system on the disk however I am willing to install any reasonable operating system of choice (ex: Windows 7/8/10/11, Debian/Ubuntu/Arch, etc) if you are interested.

I am looking for $170 PayPal F&F or $180 G&S.

I’m interested in this, that’s an interesting set of small mods done to it, where in IL are you located? I’m in NWI and I’m not against meeting up in the 394/294/80/94 corridors, but if this is south on 55/57 or north of the city it can make things a bit more of a stretch.

Normally I'm located around the UIC area (90/290) but I can drive if you want.
