You can buy a charge/adaptor from ebay for less than £10. The RAM memory can be upgraded to 4GB/8GB. I am using one (bought one from this website). And I want to recommend this laptop to you. It's fast machine and solid as tank for a low budget laptop.
Great deal for a good laptop.

I bought one of these couple of weeks ago from SCH for Windows duties, fitted 8GB ram and a 120GB SSD, In normal use it's just as quick as my work laptop (Hp 6460b - i5 CPU yada yada)

The T400 came with an extended battery and it lasts around 3 hours in use
Does anyone know is this is wireless

There will be product key on the laptop, you can download Vista OS from internet onto CD/USB and install it fresh on the laptop. Not sure if you can use another computer OS (for window 7 or to install to this laptop. I have never tried. But some people will answer your question soon.
put ubuntu on it, its free, secure and great

What SSD do you use?

Yeah, I wouldn't mind knowing this as this T400 model seems to be SATA I interface so just wondering if the recent Sandisk SATA II SSDs will work in this and if it's worth SSDing this laptop at all. I'm trying to look for chipset information in case the interface is actually SATA II anyway. It's surprising to see SATA I with it taking DDR3 memory.
I hope this will be of some help to those of you who need more details regarding this laptop:

+1 - Plus the hardware maintenance manuals can be found over at the Lenovo Support website as well, with regards to what steps are needed to upgrade the RAM, HDD, etc, etc. Bear in mind that it will come with hardware whitelisting, so if you wanted to swap-out the existing WiFi Card with a non-Lenovo WiFi Card then you'd need to install a third party BIOS hack to remove the whitelisting (do this at your OWN RISK, as it can potentially brick the TP).

I fitted a 120GB OCZ Agility 3 as the primary drive and a 320GB in a cheap caddy replacing the DVD drive., I had temporarily fitted a Sandisk Ultra 64GB and that performed well, but the 120GB was in a server and only using around 30GB of it, so I swapped them over, this and the ram upgrade have made it a solid performer in general use, it even runs virtual machines fairly well too.

The RAM upgrade took about a couple of minutes, undo 4 screws on the bottom, flip up the plamrest from the keyboard/palmrest edge, swapped the modules and put back together.

I found a Belkin universal charger on the bay ages ago and I'm using that to power it rather than a £6.99 fake charger which aren't very well made.

For those who like numbers, from memory, the Windows experience index scores were:

CPU 5.9
RAM 5.9
Graphics 4.something
Gaming GFX I can't remember
Hard disk 7.4

Hope that's of use

Lots of grade B and C ThinkPads have been posted over at SCH Trade - includes a number of grade C T400 TPs.
Anyone manage to find a good seller on ebay for chargers? I bought mine off some dude 10 days ago, still haven't received it. Thanks.
I have used numerous Thinkpads from the T, R and X range and still own the best out of the range and discarded the rest. They all have their ups/downs, but generally solid build quality, good keyboard and all-round performers. This is one of the good examples, albeit definitely not portable and too heavy even without the battery - it is best used as an alternative desktop. Also, mine cost a hell of a lot more than the one in this deal. The keyboard, screen and speakers are good. Although, it all depends your specs and how much you can get out of it - but it should perform pretty well with W7 x64 or x86.

To find out what is inside your machine and go about making it work - you need to do the following:

1. Go to the link below and choose the Laptop section and go through the driver matrix to enter the number found at the bottom of your lappy, should be a Type: 4-digit number. followed by the model no. which is a 3 digit/character (alpha-numeric). Once you have chosen your OS - you should be able to see all the info on what it was originally specified with and download drivers/updates etc. support.lenovo.com/en_…age?

2. Don't waste your time to download individual drivers, but instead install the System Update Utility (on version 5 at present) which will allow you to chose and download all the updates based on your machine and give you a lot more control - makes life a whole lot easier, trust me!

3. If you chose wisely - then you won't have some useless services and utilities running and giving you some free RAM as a result. If you installed a version of W7 it is best to turn-off some the services that are not required. This thing works best with at least 4GB of RAM and with the OS tweaked to make the most of it.

If you want to know a little bit more about the details of memory, storage devices etc. without a screw-driver - a good basic utility that has served me really well over the years. SIW: gtopala.com/ - download the old build (1029) for free.

As you are probably aware Nexus 4/Android 4.2 has a known issue with Bluetooth pairing. I can only suggest you take yourself over to Google Nexus-based and Android forums and see what resolutions they are offering - it might take a bit of time to make it work, but will happen if you are tenacious.

However, I doubt very much that the BT functionality has any problems on the laptop end. But, for troubleshooting I would recommend that you try to pair another device like an old phone/headset etc. that has BT to your laptop to make sure that it is configured properly and working as intended. You would have at the very least eliminated or solved one part of the equation...
