Thinkpad: Finally managed to score the one thing that was missing in my collection.
Finally managed to score the one thing that was missing in my collection. The very top of my ThinkPad bucket list. All roads from here are downhill from now on.
period correct - just right. I'm installing XP SP3 the first time in ages - on a Z61m (Titanium lid)
That's a great machine, I've got a W700 and i still use it daily, I'm actually writing on it right now. the 17" 16:10 is really nice and it's a great secondary machine, The W701DS is on my list, if i ever get one i will upgrade it to 32GB ram and the Extreme edition I7.
I have the same and i maxxed it out (32gb 2133 ram, i7 xtrem etc). Still a completely usable machine. Enjoy 👌🏼
It wouldn't matter though, because I'm completely stripping it when it arrives and installing new parts and upgrades.
If it came from Hawaii, it's an ex-house of representatives
How do you score the build quality/ rigidity of the machine compare to Thinkpads of that era like T400,T500, X200?
Well, the first 17" after the W701 Lenovo made was the P70, which I have and it's better built than the W series.
It's literally two inches thick, the thing feels like a tank. Opening the machine feels like opening a car door - it's amazing.
I'm waiting for one with a digitizer. I suspect it'll be a few more years yet, if at all! We'll done...
