IBM Thinkpad T60 for sale

Intel Core Duo 2.0GHz
1.5gb ram
100gb hdd
14.1" XGA TFT
ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 graphics chipset
Bio-Metric Reader
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
Windows XP Pro

2007 63G L3AB064

Selling due to upgrade. Used for about a year and a half (originally bought from here). Has been restored to original settings.

Thinklight doesn't work (didn't work originally, minor thing but worth a mention) and battery only holds a short charge. The plastic cover outside the hard drive bay is missing but it doesn't affect the machine's operation.

Some drivers may need updating, can be done if you go to the lenovo website. Keyboard is fully functioning (no wobbly or jammed keys). I will include a usb mouse, recovery CDs and spare set of screws.

Looking for £250 delivered.

price lowered to £220 delivered

Are you interested in any trades? I've got a mobile phone going for sale on here:

Obviously I'd add some cash going your way on top.
Is collection an option? where from?
yeah - buckinghamshire

@Kai - I'm just after the cash, thanks anyway

No problem. I'll offer you £150 delivered for it though.
Hows the battery? :whistling:

Had T41 and T43, solid machines - might need one for uni.
My offer of £150 is still here if you want it although I know you dismissed it earlier.

It's just my opinion, but you're unlikely to going to get anywhere near £220 for this machine.

Just a few things about it:

1) It's out of warranty (this is a big one)
2) Thinklight is broken (It's not easy to fix this since it's embedded into the screen)
3) Plastic cover of the hard drive is missing. (Indicates heavy damage. Thinkpads are known for being tough, but something must've happened with some impact to knock the hard drive door off)
4) Battery is shot and original batteries are costly (Originally it would've held a charge of over 3 hours)
5) Your pictures aren't the best - you still need a pic with your name and date on it

Finally, I know that auction price comparisons aren't supposed to show any kind of valuation, but the biggest auction site which everyone knows about lists the same model of laptop for around your price in perfect condition and some with warranty left.

You're probably even less inclined to sell to me now, but it's entirely up to you.
I understand it is out of warranty, however, Thinkpads are reliable and it is less likely to fail than other laptops, including some of the big names.

This would be perfectly reasonable if the laptop was in perfect condition. Unfortunately, it's not.


Thinklight is a minor thing, a lot of laptops won't have a light anyway and I never found myself needing to use an external light. I thought I would mention it though.

I use a ThinkLight quite a lot. (I'm typing this from a ThinkPad at 5am and my ThinkLight is on).


Your claims of heavy damage is inaccurate. The plastic cover, and screw, are missing because I had taken the hard drive out (to be used as an external drive on another pc). There has been no damage as suggested, the fact the machine is working shows that. Damage of that kind would have killed the hard drive but this is not the case.

Do you still have the cover? To be honest, to take out the hard drive is a very minor thing. To damage the cover while you're at it shows carelessness. Never the less, it's stil damage and needs to be fixed. I'd hate to think how the hard drive got handled if the cover got damaged in the process of accessing the hard drive.


Batteries are costly from the official site, however, I have bought laptop batteries from ebay before at a lower cost. As long as you exercise common sense and search around, you could pick one up for a decent price.

I'd steer clear of batteries from eBay unless they are genuine ones (which are costly).


Some thinkpads are sold as refurbished on ebay hence the cheap price and I would personally stay clear of any refurbished laptops.

The ones I saw still had remaining manufacturers warranty. Anything wrong with it and it's possible to send it to Lenovo/IBM to get sorted. The same can't be said of this one.


If you wish, I will try to get hold of a digital camera and I can put my name and date in a picture for you. Also, you can, if you haven't already, check my feedback and I have no problem with selling to you.

Would you be willing to move up on your offer at all?

Maybe a little. What have you got in mind?
no worries, T400 looks like a great machine :thumbsup:

I'm waiting for the T1000 model, apparently it is made from liquid metal

price lowerd to £220 delivered

LOL... :w00t: somebody watched too many terminator movies... I hear T1001 is pretty good as well. :thumbsup:

In all seriousness, you'd be much better off selling on eBay. Similarly specced machine could fetch about £300 imo.
I appreciate you use the Thinklight but I can't really do much about it.

I agree, it's not in perfect condition but nor is it not falling apart. The keyboard is solid and the missing cover doesn't compromise the machine at all. The hard drive won't just fall out.

I know that the hard drive won't just fall out. Without the cover though it makes it that much more difficult to get the hard drive out easily. Too, as well as not protecting it from any foreign objects falling in when transporting it about.


You are doing a lot of assuming here. I take care of anything I own. I may have been careless in losing the cover but it was not damaged (I've lost the screw and screwdriver as well). I would much rather you be direct and say you think I am incapable of looking after a laptop.

Would you be willing to do £180?

I'm not saying that you are incapable - after all I know nothing about you. However, I can remember when this laptop was first put up for sale and back then it was in immaculate condition (no mention about the ThinkLight being faulty but then again it might not have worked when you got it). I'm just wondering in that space of time exactly what has happened to the laptop and if I'm going to take it up, without any warranty I'm going to be a bit stuffed if it goes wrong aren't I?

I'm also a little curious about the spare bag of screws. Have you opened the laptop up at all? Thinkpads don't usually come with a complete set of spare screws save for the extra one to secure the CD/DVD drive in place.

Is the LCD screen pixel perfect? Or does it have any dead pixels on the screen at all? These may show up as little black/red or green dots on the screen that don't change no matter what you do on the screen.

As I said, I can move up a little but if you could please answer the questions I've asked, we can hopefully negotiate from there.

There may be an option to buy extended warranty if you are concerned. The battery degrades over time and you get the usual signs of wear (such as marks on the outside of the lid). The laptop has not been thrown about or anything like that. There has been no damage to the laptop.

The laptop has been opened up by the service people, they replaced the keyboard (it was becoming worn because I did a lot of typing). I bought the spare set of screws in case I had to open it up in the future - after the warranty expired.

I had no problems with the screen and there are no dead pixels.

You had the keyboard replaced? In that you sent it off to be replaced? Why didn't you get the ThinkLight serviced at the same time? All it woud've taken was a quick mention and they'd have done it at the same time.

I think I'd also like to look at the marks that you mention if possible. Thinkpads don't mark that easily since they have a hard 'rubberised' material for the top lid, so any deep scratches or gouges I'd like to know about if possible. Give it a quick rub to see if the marks come out as they usually do unless it's been deeply marked.

I can move my offer up to £165 subject to better pictures?
Will you arrange a courier to collect it?

Prefer not to. Whereabouts are you located? I might consider collection if you're not too far away.
Buckinghamshire is too far. My maximum is £165 inclusive of delivery charges.
I'll do £175 but I'm guessing you won't accept.

Thanks for your interest :thumbsup:

Meet in the middle at £170. Final offer. :)
£172.50? :p

Nope. £170 or nothing I'm afraid.
okay, pm me your details

You've got a PM :thumbsup:
