  1. Hello, I want to discuss about characteristics of the ThinkPad T61p. Me also I DOI to buy a portable and I benefice same offer (SUPINFO). Higher somebody with known as than this model cost 3000 Euros, but I croi which one can add easily more than 1000 Euros at this price. Indeed the model that one proposes to us is not the same one as that which is on the site: The processor that one with is T7700 with 2,40 GHz against T7500 with 2,2 GHz for that with 3000euros The memory of the graphics board is of 256Mo against 128Mo the battery is one 9 cells against one 6 cells The PC is equipped with a chart ROBSON of 1 Go against nothing. and the hard disk is with 7200tpm whereas I am not sour that it is the case for that with 3000 Euros. In light for 2200 Euros, one with a portable which in the trade coute easily 4300euros. At the beginning I found that it was nevertheless expensive (normal it is of IBM) but by looking at a little on the market, if you éxactement want the same caratactéristiques ones in other marks is necessary to tell easy 3200 Euros (I have to try to make same the config at dell undertaken) but behind you will not have the quality offered by IBM. Thus in all the cases I think that that remains a good bargain nevertheless.
