I have a T61p with a dead nvidia graphics chip. There was a batch of faulty
nvidia chips that went into the laptops and their failure is a known problem -
my card failed recently and Lenovo is no longer replacing those cards for free,
but there was a period when they did that, thus confirming that it was indeed a
manufacturing defect.

Keeping this in light, I'd stay away from second-hand T60 / T61 / T61p with an
nvidia graphics chip and instead get something with Intel graphics. Also, I
believe the older models have better screens.
