I just won an [IBM Thinkpad T41p model 2373GEU](http://www5.pc.ibm.com/us/products.nsf/$wwwPartNumLookup/_2373GEU) on [eBay](http://www.ebay.com) for $2025! A bit more expensive than what I had hoped before. I was hoping to get it within 1800-1900 range, but it’s still a good deal since the seller claimed it is brand new, not refurbished. And also considering the model is no longer produced, and the replacement T42p is way out of my reach. To top it all off, the seller even upgraded the memory to 1024 MB. Not a bad deal in my opinion. However winning on eBay is only the beginning, now is the scariest part. I hope the whole deal is not fraudulent. And if it is not fraudulent, it is better to be in same condition stated in the auction listing. I really don’t want to waste precious 2 grands for nothing.
