Yes, I have one Penryn system as listed in original post, and one Merom ready to build to order.

Is there any chance to build it into 4:3 15 inch chassis?

cheers Brett

That's the whole idea of these Frankenpads!

I can build them too, but this specific model is 15.4". There are advantages to the 15.4 such as native penryn support, availability of parts, and you'd be getting the best available parts from an august 2008 (08/08) T61p. With a T60/61 you'd be starting with a laptop a couple years older, and the base T60 unit in the best condition would cost nearly as much as this complete system, not even including the conversion, systemboard, cpu and other necessary parts. The 15.4" screen also seems to hold up better then the 15" isp, but the ips screens are beautiful

Each system has it's merits.

Don't forget to let the forum know of your success building your "ultimate machine" - :thumbs-UP:
