Lenovo T61 motherboard DEFECTIVE (Good news: I woke up - BAD news: my Lenovo notebook didn't), Lenovo wants $575 to fix it and I don't think I have the skills to install an Ebay board.

I just got a new 7.8 AH battery a month ago, the old battery only ran for about an hour)

It includes XP Pro, but I didn't get any CDs with it, one has to order the CDs separately, from Lenovo.  The Lenovo/XP  is on a separate partition on the drive.

I decided to keep it and just

I decided to keep it and just got my "new" refurb T61 on Ebay.  I think it was $590 including shipping.

It was a nightmare GETTING the computer, the seller shipped USPS instead of UPS as he stated with the listing.  So it took hours of phone calls, faxes and 3 trips to the post-office -- but I finally got it last Wed.  So I can use the batteries, the extra memory and we'll see what breaks.
