Acquired from a trash bin, I had no real high expectations for this one. It is quite possibly the most used laptop I have ever owned, and I didn't even get a power supply with it. Surprisingly, with a new hard drive, it came right back to life, and has been working ever since. I am currently using it as a spare laptop in case my T61 is forced back into a main computer role or stops working itself (which it has done a couple of times).

This system is suffering from motherboard issues. After it has been powered on for a while the screen goes blank and all functionality is lost. It is still semi-usable, however it needs repairs. As of August 2015, I have parked this system in favor of a Sony Vaio, although there is a chance it will return to its former glory at some point.
