I always wanted to delve into Delphi. 32 bits apps don't aleays jive with modern os', or h/w. So it seemed a good idea to scarf up some 32 bit systems. Then the day came when I decided to get a Thinkpad. I t0ok delivery of a T61 just the other day. This thing probably doesn't work, but there should be at least a few good parts. I opted for this model, for even though it came stock with 64 bit cpus, they're early enough to be more related to 32bit cpus as i understand it. And there's a bios, not uefi firmware. T60/p mobos can be had brand new on ebay, and I'm assuming it's a drop in replacement more or less. Everyone loves new.
I've had TPs a long while ago, Pentium MMX/II era. I didn't have high opinions then. Arguably I own a modernish close kin TP right now, an Ideapad in actuality, and it may be the last model produced that generally resembles a classic TP. This T61 is a nice model, has a 15" screen. And if you're gonna go TP, go big I say. My IP has a 17.3.
