i am new to this forum and i have a question about my IBM ThinkPad Z61p (Type: 0674 - GEG).
My z61p is quite old (about 5 years old) and for quite some time now i had a few problems with my Z61p with its cooling fan. The noise is as discribed here (http://lophiomys.gmxhome.de/Thinkpad_R5 ... Noise.html
). Sometimes the noise is alsow like: whoooooooo rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr whoooooo ...
In general i like my thinkpad but was alsow considering to replace it with a 13.3" model. But then again since i am a student and lack the necesery €, i was alsow considering a litle upgrade.
I was thinking about replaicing the fan, but i am not sure if the problem will occure again. I had this problem for quite some time now, but laitly it started to really iritate me and the noise is making me crazy.
Considering, that the T7200 CPU is 64bit, i was alsow considering upgraiding the RAM, but then again...
To summ it up, my questions would be:
1. What do you think my Z61p is worth, is it worth replaicing?
2. Should i replace the fan or will the problem occure again?
3. Should i replace the HD with an SSD and if yes, with witch ssd (around 120gb)?
4. Upgraiding RAM?
The whole investment would be around 250€ (approximately 343 USD). So, is it worth it?
I would realy apriciate a second opinion on my questions.
PS: I apologise for my bad english.
