Upvoted you for being a good son/daughter. +1 for still using a T61...one of the last models that were made by IBM.

Hmmm.. Interesting. I wonder what kind of flash chips they used in this to get this price point. Probably similar chips as used in memory cards so expect similar performance and longevity.

might be good for non-critical use like a Raspberry Pi or hobby project but don't expect much

if youre a cheapass like me, only buy this for booting purposes.
save your files on the cloud or on an external hdd.
we've all had that experience of failing 1tb hdds filled with important files (including branded hdds)
