the basics:


ThinkPad R60e (0657-4MU)

T2300E(1.66GHz)...........now T2600 (2.16 Ghz)
512MB RAM..............now 2GB (2x1GB)
60GB 5400rpm HD........now 80GB/5400rpm
15in 1024x768 LCD.......now 15" IPS FlexView SXGA+ (1400x1050) LCD
Intel 950
CDRW/DVDRW
Intel 802.11abg wireless..........now Lenovo a/b/g/n (FRU 42T0825)
Modem
1Gb Ethernet
No UltraNav..............YAY... :thumbs-UP:
6c Li-Ion batt
WinXP Pro............COA and recovery partition intact
65W genuine Lenovo AC adapter included

Why would I build a FlexView-equipped FrankenPad based on R60e?

Because I don't like touchpads on ThinkPads.

Because I had all the parts required and nothing better to do with them... :lol:

Anyway...it's one very clean machine with minor wear on the lid, and average shine on keyboard/palmrest area. Runs pretty fast given the age of the platform involved, very quiet, all-in-all a success in my book. Might just be an ultimate Linux box of this era.

As usual...if you require a bigger hard drive/SSD...

Cash, personal cheque, USPS/Canada Post money order, Western Union or MoneyBookers accepted as payment method. No PreyPal.

NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL BUYERS:

As of May 16th, 2012 we are no longer allowed to ship batteries internationally, with or without the laptop. More on this USPS regulation can be found here:

Pricing adjustments shall be made accordingly, please contact me directly for details.

PM or email me directly to tataslonATaol.com

That's exactly the reason I built mine. The aesthetics of the touch padless palm rest are the way to go. I wish they'd offer it on other ThinkPads. If I didn't already have one....

Two upgrades as of 07/01/2012:

a) CPU from T2300 to T2600.

b) Wireless card from Intel 3945ABG to Lenovo ABGN.

The same low price. As good as it gets for this one.
