Hey, so I've got 3 laptops and a ThinkPad tablet.
The T42 is staying as it is, never gave me an issue.
Then I have a 32GB ThinkPad Tablet that I just updated to ICS. It has the pen and I rarely use the thing so I was thinking of selling it. Not sure exactly how much I could get for it, but I'm presuming around $350 or so.
I have a 2007 MacBook, 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo 2GB RAM 120GB HD with Snow Leopard/Windows 7 dual boot. 13" 1280x800 res. Battery lasts around 2 hours. Don't need to have 3 laptops so I figure maybe I can sell it for around $300-350 as well, judging by the prices of similar 2007 MacBooks on eBay.
My main laptop is a 2009 MacBook Pro 17" 2.66 GHz Core 2 Duo 8GB RAM 640GB HD with Lion/Windows 7 dual boot. 1920x1200 res, battery lasts 5-6 hours. Found similar ones on eBay going for $1300+
So I figure to sell all 3 of these devices and get either a new T or W series for video editing and Photoshopping. I LOVE my T42 but even my MBP slows me down with video editing. It's rather a pain. I use the Adobe suite and a bunch of free converters and editors.
The MBP spoiled me bad with its display. So for the T or W, I'd hope to go for a 1920x1080 res screen, at least a 3rd gen i7, probably stick with the 4GB RAM and buy 12 or 16GB myself since Lenovo charges an unbelievable amount for RAM.
Now I know for a fact that I want an SSD and an HD. I don't need an SSD bigger than 64GB really, but the HD must be at least 500GB and 7200RPM. Thoughts?
