The new battery for my T60 has finally arrived! I was very happy about the fact that it seems to look basically identical to the original battery and about it being quite powerful. From my, admittedly rather short testing, it seems that it will last around 2 – 3 hours when fully charged, which is plenty. I will be keeping the battery that came with the laptop as a spare, should I ever need one, though. I was surprised to see how light it was in comparison to the original Lenovo battery, even though it has much more capacity; but I won't complain about that.
It does, as already expected, stick out slightly from the back of the laptop, but this isn't annoying in any way.
Yesterday I created a post talking about the new laptop I was getting and well, I have finally picked it up. I was surprised to see it in such a good condition, even though the charging cable does seem to be a bit iffy (it works, but I may have to get a new one). The battery, as already expected, doesn't last a very long time (about an hour) and because of that, I have already ordered a new one (with over 8 Ah if I remember correctly) that should hopefully last a bit longer than the current one. It's one of these rather large ones that actually stick out from the back of the laptop, so that'll make this beast even heavier than it already is (2+ kg, which is about 5 lbs). But overall, I'm quite impressed by how well this laptop has been kept; there are no scratches, the display is very clean, the keyboard is working fine — everything just seems to work.
I've been meaning to get a secondary laptop for a long time but I have for some reason kept putting it off — but that is no more! I decided to get an old IBM ThinkPad T60 which is a laptop I had previously used as well; in fact, I still have a photo that I took of my T61 way back when.
Therefore, I thought it would be great to have another one of these very sturdy and nigh-indestructible laptops to take with me when I have to go places for work (or just a nice laptop that I can take with me whenever I go to the woods or something).
Some may be aware of the fact that I started writing a book regarding the language of Ancient Egypt quite a while ago and, due to work, have taken much longer than anticipated to actually finish it. However, I have finally been able to finish my book and you may now download it freely on my website.
