Rare Thinkpad T500

T9900 Penryn CPU, 3.06ghz, 6mb cache, 1066mhz fsb ***cpu alone sells for $300***

http://ark.intel.com/products/39312/Int ... 66-MHz-FSB)

Switchable graphics:
256MB ATI Radeon HD3650
Integrated Intel

Warrantied until the end of 2014 by lenovo with onsite service (next day).

***Mint Condition***

Wsxga screen (1680x1050)

WiMax intel pro 5350

WiWan (ready)

Bluetooth


The T9900 is the ultimate Penryn core2 duo cpu and until I got my hands on this system, I didn't even believe you could get one in a thinkpad. I wanted to install one myself, but couldn't get one from a reliable source for less then $300, so here's your chance to get a mint condition High-End T500 with the hottest CPU, best (switchable) graphics for a very fair price.

Complete with genuine 6 or 9 cell battery (like new), brand new genuine AC adapter and 80gb hdd (win7 installed for testing), a Vista setup disc and COA, 4gb ram for $650 plus shipping.

I'm also offering another of these as barebones (no hdd/caddy/cover/battery/ac adapter) for $550 *pm for details*


Shipping to 48 states will be $20, international will vary.


Warranty info *selected randomly*

As you can see by the pictures, I don't throw the word "mint" around loosely.

Quick update: I haven't had time to update this topic over the weekend, but to sum it up, I ended up getting three more of these units, all of which have sold. The two remaining are available, including the one pictured above.

Got another to offer. This is the Exact same model, same build date, same 5year warranty lasting until the end of november 2014. Specs are as follows...


ThinkPad T500 (2055-B54)
T9900 (3.06GHz) Penryn Core 2 duo, 6mb L2 cache
4GB RAM 8GB RAM
128GB SSD WD 320GB Black
15.4in 1680x1050 LCD BRAND NEW SCREEN ***Beautiful***
256MB ATI Radeon HD3650
CDRW/DVDRW Multiburner
Intel 802.11agn+802.16e WiMAX wireless Intel Pro 5350
WWAN option
Bluetooth
Modem
1Gb Ether
UltraNav
Sec Chip
6c Li-Ion 9cell 41++ genuine lenovo 66% remaining
Vista Business COA w/setup disc. Win Seven currently installed for testing
90w Genuine Lenovo power supply
Condition near flawless, only the faintest signs that it's ever been used.

This unit was just fully factory refurbished by Lenovo and is certified 100% perfect. The 90day warranty is made redundant by the remaining

***2 years 8 months of the On-Site warranty remaining***.

I believe this ultra hi-end T500 is worth every bit of $1000, but I'm respectfully offering it to forum members @ $599.00 usd plus cost of shipping.

Domestic (usa) shipping will be a flat $20 to 48 states, international will vary depending on package size, weight and service desired.

The above one just sold. There may be one more available, so I'll keep this topic open (for now) until I know of sure if it's sold or not.
