I'm using a Dell Precision 5550 for work, at the same time an Thinkpad x1c1 for my personal use. I switch between the two (3 actually if i count my custom built desktop) using a 4 port kvm switch.

Excuse my ignorance but what is a T41.3?

It's just what I call my frankenpad. It uses a ThinkPad T43 case with the 15 inch high resolution screen, and CPU , and the motherboard from a ThinkPad T41, and various other components from other ThinkPads that's why I called my T41.3, sorry to have confused you.

that's amazing! I have heard of swapping out between T60 and T61 but not other models.

It was out of necessity hehe, just had all the parts and luckily it works like the T60 with T61 motherboard, just that in my case I had a T43 with with a great CPU and Screen resolution and a fried motherboard, and a ThinkPad T41 motherboard and just frankenpaded the whole lot as it was just a straight swap...
