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.

It is a custom model based on a European model.

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

R61 15" 4:3 were also sold in S.E. Asia.
I got one once that was sold in South-Korea.

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
