Oh good Gods! Now I have three of the darn things. No more ebay for me till I sell some of this junk.
IBM THINKPAD T43 CENTRINO 1.7GHZ 1GB 14" SCREEN LAPTOP + WIFI
Laptop powers up has password to bios
Screen appears good but don't know not tested.
Top cover has few scratches.
IBM Thinkpad T40p Laptop Intel Mobile 1.60 GHz 512 MB RAM No HD DVD-ROM/CD-RW
Model: T40p, Type 2373-G1U
Computer powers on and can boot into the BIOS.
All other functions are UNTESTED.
15 bucks each plus shipping so Im out 30 bucks for a screen that might be good from the t43 1871cto and I got the t40p for my daughter cause she thinks my thinkpad is cool (smart kid)
so according to this table from lenovo support the type 1871cto should work assuming i got a pc with a good screen for my 15 bucks

ok lesson learned ...research BEFORE purchase.
and yes I did look into unlocking the biospassword before I bought that t43 1871 cto.
Ill prolly never get around to trying that and the eeprom "kit" I found cost $80 so yeah...but it should have some good spare parts other than the screen.
Thanks for your help.
