My T60 is a great laptop but it lacks Bluetooth. Unfortunately, it also does not have the socket to install the BDC-2 CDC: The brown ribbon cable underneath the LCD bezel just has tin contacts to solder the socket, but the socket itself is missing... fully in line with the theory that there are two two different LCD cable assemblies, 91P6984 with BT, and 91P6982 w/o BT
So, we seem to have 3 options to add Bluetooth to my T60:
1. buy a BDC-2 with BT LCD cable assembly, and replace the old LCD cable
2. just buy a BDC-2 and try to find and solder a CDC socket myself
3. forget the internal upgrade and go get bluetooth on USB
My question is: is it worth or ridiculously difficult to try purchase and solder the missing CDC socket myself? (I guess it's less hassle to try find and replace the ribbon cable)
For instance, would the BDC-2 have perfect XP integration, and all the newest Bluetooth features? (I'm particularly interested in the Headset profile to listen to music on a BT headphone)
Or, would I be better off with just an external Bluetooth USB stick and no further worries?
