[WTS] Selling Thinkpads

Recently won some auction lots for some local businesses in SoCal and need to sell my extras. I bought way too many. Post in the thread to reserve or pm me if you are interested! I’ll put prices WITHOUT shipping but I am willing to haggle, especially if you are buying more than one. If you want pics of one to see what condition it is in let me know, but they are all pretty mildly scratched/fingerprinted from regular use, nothing major. Also willing to trade for others let me know. Currently I have:

I can put any linux distro you like on these, format them, or use the windows key on the bottom (T60/X60 have XP keys, X220, T420, and W520 have W7 keys, X250 has a W8 key) or unregistered Win 10 (You will have to activate).

No fair. I just made myself broke.


As per BST rules you are required to post images of all products with your name in the pictures with timestamp

If this is not met within 48 hours I will lock this thread until you provide adequate documentation

you might want to have a better name that is actually accurate then mempads if you actually hope to sell them

Any chance you would reduce the price on the x250? if you still have it.


The CPU on the example unit it much slower, and because its soldered you can’t swap it. Additionally, the FHD screen is rare in these; the eBay posting doesn’t mention, but it likely just has a WXGA screen.

That T60 makes me wet but if I needed more core 2 duo era power it’d be risc.

Post a tutorial on how to install coreboot the website makes me want to kill myself. Like please. I will suck your fries.

Sold it, it did have the 1080p IPS panel

I still have the T60, it already has coreboot on it if you are interested. I bought it that way. Unfortunately it has the soldered AMD GPU so you can’t use proper libreboot.

Coreboot install to my knowledge on the pre-nehalem thinkpad motherboards is literally a bash script you run as super user.
