I have decided to give my sister a Lenovo Thinkpad T410 for Christmas. Currently she is using a Dell Inspiron 15 3521 laptop for school which needs to be retired. It is slow, cheap, and probably will not last her through the next few years of High School. The T410, which I bought off eBay for $65, will make a great replacement laptop for her and should last for many years to come!
Before I can give the Thinkpad to my sister it needs a little work. I bought a 500GB ADATA SP550 SSD, new 9-cell Battery, used DVD drive, a drive caddy, and I pulled 8GB of RAM out of another Dell inspiron laptop to go into the T410. In this video I will upgrade the T410 so that it is ready to go when my sister receives it, I will also Install Windows 7 Pro, run some benchmarks, and even play Minecraft.
