They sell for around $200 on up to $400 on eBay. It all depends on the condition.

$200 !!!!!

That's a very low price in my opinion.....you might be missing parts or there's a problem somewhere..

I picked a good one up for close to $300....usually they sell for around $310 to $370..

If you find one around $200 go for it!!

Good luck,
Ron

i paid 340. it is still under warranty. one owner machine, owners manual included, and some other oem things.


It comes with everything I listed. I have the t61 (with fan trouble, I am running tpfancontrol) it does ok, but I wanted to get a machine that could have 8GB of ram. It is a little faster, a little newer. It would 50 bucks to put 4GB in the t61, and it costs the same to put 8GB in the T400. Also I wanted a dock --that's 30 bucks-- I also wanted to the DVD-RW.

I am not sure if I got a deal, but it is in the price range listed.

I will probably be on this site awhile, as I have decided to go with thinkpads. I am going to take the fan out of the t61 and try to replace the fan with another and keep the same heatsink.

alright thanks for the price info.

Please forgive me, as I did not mean to insult.

I see that the ones I had on my ebay watchlist that were around $200 did not have the dedicated graphics.

A good place to get good equipment, although the prices tend to be high. From time to time they have discounts, 10% if I recall correctly, and extend the warranties for a full year. You also get a 7 day looksee which came in handy the last machine I ordered, it was a T61p and they could not tell me the build date. I received it, looked at the build date and shipped it back the next day when I saw it was in the pre 08/08 era, all the shipping both ways was on their dime.

I have sold a lot of them and the biggest factors that affect the price are these:

Dedicated vs. integrated graphics
webcam
OS (those with windows 7 go for more with Vista or XP, especially 64-bit)

Also, those with T9400 CPUs go at a slight premium and T9600 machines bring quite a bit more.
