Bought this last week with a dead hard drive, swapped it out, installed windows and it works great. I was trying to think of something I could use it for, but I couldn't so I figured I would resell it.
Everything seems to work as it should and it is in great condition for its age. The lcd seems a little dim, but that could be because I am used to looking at the very bright 28" screen on my desktop. It is still being sold as-is since I have only owned it for a week. I will continue to mess with it until it sells and if any problems arise I will update.
Here is an in depth review from 2002 when this was a top of the line laptop:IBM Thinkpad A31p
1.6ghz Mobile Pentium 4
ATI Mobility 7500
256mb DDR(1gb max)
Windows XP(fresh install)
**Dead battery, but it is included
This also comes with a laptop sleeve. It was not made for this laptop so it is a little large, but that is kinda handy because you can fit the ac adapter in with the laptop and it all fits in nice and snug
