Went to a Carboot Sale today.
I managed to get a T61 Thinkpad rather dusty, but clearly ok (physical) condition , when I asked the seller "whats wrong with it" they replied "dont work.." (helpful) . I asked "how much" , they said "£10" , I replied in automatic mode " would you take £5?" , "go on then" came the reply (BARGAIN!).
Got it home , cleaned it up , checked it over , booted - BSOD (winxp) , checked things out with a live CD, all seems ok.
later today I'll install #ArchLinux
