Looking for a Backup T60

Looking for a T60 8743CTO -- anyone know of a refurbished that is available?

Re: Looking for a Backup T60

If it is an emergency (hot) backup, you might think about a non-wide model. They are cheaper and easier to find than another wide model. You could put your drive into it and it would run. If you wanted one without drives, battery and memory (you have those) you could get one under $100

Re: Looking for a Backup T60

I Thought that might be the case. What would be the best model to use as a backup that is close to the other specs for the 8743CTO?

 

Thanks!

An Intel-based 14" T60 would boot from your disk (you would get an error message from the ATi driver). It would also use your same battery, memory and optical drive. It would be the cheapest backup. You might or might not need a wireless driver. It depends on which wireless card you now have. Usually, you would not need one. Buying a machine with 1GB of memory would cost an extra $10 (approximately) but would save you from needing to open the machine. I have a couple of very clean ones. If you are interested, send me a pm.
