Since I got an X31 for my next toy to be tweaked, I am selling my beloved TR451. For those who are not familiar, it is a T41 that has R51 Intel video system board transplanted. So it means no more GPU failures!
And this is not all. This machine has been my test-bed for how long can a T4x series machine work on battery and I have very impressive results. More on that below.
Here's the specs:
*Pentium M 750 1.86 GHz CPU running at 1.4 GHz (on 400 MHz FSB), it is undervolted to the max, thermal paste is fresh AS5. Fan runs only on POST. I have yet to hear the fan running even watching youtube videos. IF the buyer wants, I can tweak the machine so the CPU runs at full 1.86 GHz speed with a flick of a switch.
*1 GB RAM (2x 512 MB)
*40 GB 5400rpm HDD
*Intel Extreme 2 graphics (no more ATI GPU failures!)
*14.1 XGA LCD.
*Intel 2200BG wifi
*Bluetooth on request (machine has BT clearplates and antenna)
*NO UltraNav, the palmrest is brand new! This is a plamrest without UltraNav at all so you can have one of the nicest ThinkPads of all in my opinion.
*Genuine IBM Panasonic 9cell battery, has 85% of original capacity left and with this battery the machine runs 7+ hours with wireless on! With new 9cell, you could easily add an hour and a half. On idle with screen brightness turned down and wireless off, power consumption is ~6-7W.
*COM port mod in the travel bezel. This mod provides native RS232 port but it is removable if the buyer does not want it, I can install DVD/CDRW drive instead.
*72W AC adapter
*XP Professional COA
Overall condition of this machine is very nice, it has very slight marks of usage on the lid but these are barely noticeable, keyboard has almost no shine and palrmest is new as described above. Screen is perfect, very bright, clear, no defects.
To be honest I don't have a clear idea how much this machine is really worth, but I'm drawing a baseline and I'm asking $120 plus shipping ($35 to US, $20 to Europe). Feel free to correct me if I'm dead wrong on the asking price.
If someone wants photos of the machine, drop me a line and I will take some.
EDIT: Lowered the price.
