I love lenovo laptops; best laptops for typing quality IMO (though I have to admit, the keyboard on the current macbook line isnt that bad).

IMHO, I don't think you can get more than $250-$300 for T500. I have one in pristine condition with almost same specs, but I couldn't sell it locally even though asking price was $250.

I would put it around 200-250 for a fairly quick sale, depends on where you are trying to sell it, here and craigslist you probably wont get too much

you could get some more if you stipped the ssd and sold it seperate and put a standard 2.5 drive in there

put a regular bigger drive in it? makes sense I suppose, I was just curious to the value. since the lenovo/ibm laptops are known to be good for a long time, was just wondering if i wanted to upgrade to another laptop

yea I figure a SSD would be worth more parted out of I personally would hold on to it as a boot drive or something although with the prices of SSDs these days you can get a fairly large one cheap. WIth how affordable a lot of laptops are these days (especially AMD based systems) its really hard to get good returns for used ones

thanks for all the replies guys, i guess at this point it's probably worth more to me if i just held on to it, as I don't do much other than just some school work and some usual not so intensive on the go things. Since I don't notice too much of a difference between my dual core vs my friends i7 lenovo, there isn't must reason for me to upgrade just yet. i think the ssd helps a lot in keeping it nice and fast
