My last two laptops were burdened with the infamous nvidia bug (see: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=104401)

I am now consider buying a 2-year-old W510 with Quadro FX 880M. Are those free of this bug?

T420s - i7, 16GB RAM, Samsung 850 EVO + 1TB Hitachi 9.5mm, Nvidia, Oleh Bios.
W500 - C2D P9500, 8GB RAM, Samsung 830 SSD + 750GB Hitachi HDD, Intel+ATI GPU, bright WUXGA, FP-reader

W510 is safe - the only generation of ThinkPads that was affected by nVidia problem was R61/T61.
