    Considering T61's aren't worth that much anymore, shouldn't really worry about it. If you can sell it, then sell it. Worst case is you can part it out or attempt to reflow it..

    Or reflow and then sell it without warranty ;)
    (which is my plan btw).

    well my question was kind of rhetorical, and since the computer has been working so good I'm not even thinking of selling it.

    cheers.

    my old T61 from university is a great punching bag (no dGPU).
    It can withstand pretty much any physical abuse and works.

    Newegg is selling refurb 1 for 200(no dGPU) so I probably wont hassle to sell it.

    If you've got a T61 without the dedicated nvidia graphics, then I'd keep it. That thing will last forever. T61/T500 chasis were the last models built with a rollcage for the LCD.

    This is true. On the other hand, they're also some of the last models built with CCFL-backlit LCDs, so it's a bit of a trade-off.

    What is a rollcage LCD?

    One thing for sure though, the default color of T61 LCD is ......

    it's a magnesium-alloy cage behind the LCD that is supposed to protect it from physical damage somewhat. And I kinda like it though, makes the display feel tough when you move it.
