Just thought I should share some pictures of my Thinkpad collection, and then some pictures of my latest purchase, a T60.
Below are my Thinkpads, from left to right: T42 15", T43 15" Flexview, T60 15" Flexview, 360Cs and my Lenovo S10-2. The Lenovo is only a distant relative, but it was allowed to join anyway. The T30 is left in the US, so only it's port replicator got to join my little photo session.
Below are the T42, T43 and the T60. Pretty similar in size and shape. However, the T60 is a nice upgrade and carries on the nice features from the T4x series in an improved way. My wife got the pleasure of being the background image on my T42. The camera's whitebalance makes the colors a little more blue than they really are.
The newest and the oldest. The T60 and the 360Cs. 12 years apart, and in computer years that makes for quite some change and development. 33MHz vs. 1830MHz, 12Mb RAM vs 2Gb RAM, etc. But the 360Cs is still booted up a couple of times a year, and I find my self typing documents in WordPad for Win 95, and transfering them on floppy discs. Just because I can.
The 360Cs and the Lenovo S10-2. Not really related at all, but the screen is actually similar in size. My old boss created AutoCad drawings of an entire dairy plant using this 360Cs. Who would do that using a 10" netbook today.
Below is my T60. 1.83GHz, 2Gb RAM, ATI X1400, Fingerprint reader, Bluetooth. (This is not the same computer as the one in the pictures above. That belongs to work. But they are 100% similar, except my T60 has a fingerprint reader)
IBM logo is still present, even though this was a 100% Lenovo product.
9 cell battery, found in the recycling container at work. I expected it to be almost dead, and planned to keep it installed to save my good battery, and prevent the laptop form going down and have the chance to shut it down properly in case of a power outage. But it still keeps almost 3 hours of charge, and was still "good", so I got a good, free battery. I also found 2 T60 advanced mini docks, never used.. Recycling pays off.
