Collection Specifics

I bought this laptop for $34 from Mercari on February 22, 2021.

Operating System

This specific ThinkPad R61 likely shipped with Windows XP when it was purchased. Originally, I decided to install Windows 7 on this laptop to give it a bit more usability. Though, eventually I decided to go back to Windows XP to have a good XP laptop to play around with XP-related things.


The only hardware upgrade I've done to this machine is replace the internal hard drive with a solid-state drive.
