    I'm interested in seeing the price users have paid for their Thinkpad? Hopefully we'll hear from some users with the thinkpads from way back ^_^

    Being that this is my 1st Thinkpad I paid $1290 for my T61 14.1 SXGA+

    I paid close to $1,700.00 USD for my Thinkpad T61. Specs are:

    15.4" Lenovo T61P (/w Vista Ultimate)
    Intel Santa Rosa T7300
    Nvidia Quadro FX 570M
    2GB of RAM
    160 GB 7200 RPM HD

    This is with the anniversary discounts and a college student discount.

    This is my first Thinkpad, or even Lenovo branded Laptop as a matter of fact. I don't plan on it being my last though judging by the workmanship.

    Past ThinkPads were much more expensive than current ThinkPads. I remember seeing a decently configured T40 for $2,000.

    The X40 that I got for work many years ago, cost my employer the equivelant of 5,000 USD. This was in Europe where prices are generally much higher than in the US.

    My first ThinkPad came with Windows 3.1. I don't remember the model off the top of my head--I think it was a 486. I paid about $2400 or $2500 for it.

    There was a P133 in my life, but It might have been the Satellite I bought (because it had the Accu-point).

    One of my later models was the TP 765L P166MMX 3GB 32MB 13.3TFT Win95 Value with ship date of 07/01/98. That's directly from the "Order Packer" that I saved here in my computer file. No price is shown.

    But I do have a note from the research I did for my next ThinkPad, a 770, showing that CompUSA wanted $2730 for one with no CD or modem.

    Need to look up my R30 and two T30's. I bought the R30 CTO, 1 T30 rebuilt, used it a long time--slipped on ice and landed on it, broke its latch and bezel so it wouldn't close and bought the second T30 used so I could switch hard drives.

    My latest ThinkPad is an X61, Core2 Duo T7500 (2.2GHz), with 3GB RAM, 100GB 7200rpm HD, 8 cell battery, TP 802.11abg, SD Card reader, Fingerprint reader, Bluetooth and XP Pro... think I paid about $1550. I bought a Lenovo USB Super Multiburner w/Lightscribe to go with it for about $250.
