Ha I just finally stopped using my ~2008 T61 with similar specs (now acting as my pfsense router). Was a great machine, but realistically a core2 duo is just too under powered these days. I had 4GB ram and a 128GB SSD and even looked into upgrading the cpu for a bit. You could get the highest spec CPU from ebay, but cost for such little gain made it not worth it.

Yep, I have the highest spec CPU for the T60, the T7600 :)

I paid $15,- on Ebay for the CPU with free shipping.
