Appraisal: IBM Thinkpad R61i

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
School is nearing an end and I will not have a need for a notebook much longer as work will be supplying me with one.

I bought this Thinkpad back in January brand new from Circuit City. The notebook retailed for almost $1050 at the time of purchase. Notebook is in perfect condition with no defects.

IBM Thinkpad R61i:
  • Intel Core 2 Duo T5250
  • 2GB DDR2 667
  • 160GB HDD
  • 14.1" WXGA Screen
  • Dual Layer DVD Burner
  • Graphics Card Intel GMA X3100
  • Windows Vista Home Premium

Battery and charger are also in perfect condition. Pictures will be posted later. Thanks in advance.

I'll buy it off of you,

I'd say about $850-950

Hows the battery holding up?

PM an offer.

The battery is holding up very well. It's a smaller battery, but it makes the notebook very light. Roughly around 2.5-3 hours per charge, but it largely depends on what you are doing. Sitting in class I can get around 3 hours. Photoshopping and doing other things it drains in almost 2 hours, sometimes less.

I'd say $850 is a nice price.

Thanks for the opinion. Waiting for a few more before she hits the FS section.

If it's in near-perfect condition, that laptop is worth $850 on Ebay/Craigs easy, especially with a reinstall of windows. It probably won't sell for that here though TBH, we like our laptops with discrete graphics. If you're planning to sell here, I'd shoot for $750-$800.

This notebook would make great for school use or business use. No need for discrete graphics.

Gaming is for a desktop, not a laptop.
