Thinkpad T40p 199 euro offer for a 2-year-old refurbished Thinkpad T40p proved irresistible, and I was lucky to pick one up after queuing outside for 35 minutes. The place opens at 9, I arrived around 8:55, but some people had apparently been outside the doors waiting already at 7:30! The 19 euro mobile phones sold out before I made it inside.

A quick look inside, tightening some loose bolts, and dusting it off with compressed air. Should make a nice second laptop (autoguiding for astrophotography, chart-plotter on a boat, or similar)
