Bringing new life to your trusty old laptop

Revival

Author(s):

A few years ago, I bought an IBM ThinkPad T41p. It’s a great machine that served me well for a long time, although for the last year it mainly sat on the shelf. I had some free time at hand, so I decided to give it one more chance.

How many times have you had to put away an old laptop because it simply could no longer keep up with demands? Sure, it had convenient keyboard, silent fan, highresolution display, and a sturdy oldschool case – plus it didn’t get hot so easily – but, unfortunately, it was too slow for daily tasks.

A few seconds for opening a new tab in Firefox had become just too long to wait. Even though you had gotten used to this old piece of hardware, you threw it away. It’s dead anyway, right?
