[CN] [H] ThinkPad "X61HK" 51nb X210 in a X60 Case [W] Paypal
For sale is a limited edition handmade "X61HK" mod.
What is the "X61HK"?
TLDR: Some 51nb forum members cut the chassis of X61 and X201, then put them together to fit a X200/ X201/ X210 board into a retro 4:3 form chassis.
The X61H is a mod by 51nb.com forum member jxz1111111 (https://forum.51nb.com/forum.php?mod=vi ... id=1857675), based on the experiences on the X60H mod by robou (https://forum.51nb.com/forum.php?mod=vi ... id=1674617). The mod includes cutting the back case & the top case, re-mounting screw holes on the two cases, switching a modded screen cable from the X200, and modding the battery.

Please note that this mod is for diehard X60 fans only. A lot of tapes and glues are used to build this mod. I personally will not suggest buyers to teardown this machine unless some parts are broken. You need to have some mod skills to mod the battery and keyboard if they fail. Sleep works good as I've modded the keyboard bezel to fit the magnet.
Price: 2000USD or Best Offer
Wow, this is a really cool project. Amazing to see a Kaby lake 8th gen in there. It’s not for me, especially as I already have a T480 and T480s, both with 8650u i7. Good luck with sale though! This will make someone into retros very happy.
