IBM ThinkPad Z60t: Dead

Well after 3.3 years of use my Lenovo/IBM Thinkpad Z60t has died on me. It's my first and last Lenovo laptop. It's too bad it had to end like this. One day it works, and the next day it won't even turn on (no lights, no fans, nothing).

What makes it even more bitter is that it was still fast enough for web surfing and playing media...It definitely had enough horsepower to avoid being obsolete for years.

After some research and testing, I've determined that the mother board is dead. It's disappointing since Thinkpads are supposed to be known for their reliability. I guess I'll have to shop around for a Dell computer now (which would be my first Dell) Update: I did give Dell a look, but ended up with a great HP desktop and Philips monitor combo.

The only upside is that I learned how to remove parts of the laptop (hard drive, optical disk drive, RAM)...So maybe I'll have some parts to salvage, but it still sucks...Very disappointing, Lenovo.
