So after getting my T43 and watching this board for months, I give up.
Even though I don't want to, (and believe me it pains me to see it go) I'm parting out my laptop, every single component. Before I go eBay crazy, I want to give the folks on this forum first crack at the parts since this was the best place to go for info.
My laptop was/is a 5105-S501. LCD Panel is in perfect shape, same goes for the entire sound system. P4-M cpu @ 1.7 GHz. Intel 2200BG 802.11 b/g mini-pci card, 512 MB DDR RAM, DVD/CD-RW drive, system board, everything except the video-card (which was toast anyway). Also, various components, plastic pieces, screws, etc.
Email astern [at] sfsu [dot] edu with any questions. I plan on posting to eBay on the 15th.
