Re: PWM in 370 ?

For those still wondering, not really perceptible. I have had a 370 for more than 6 months now, and I cannot perceive it. According to notebookcheck PWM appears in 370 when screen brightness is below 50%. I have done the empirical test with the phone camera, and I can confirm that it exists, but it ...

Re: Yoga 370 Battery Life

Thanks! Will do try. I do not have other addictions than multiple tabs, I'll try to gradually reduce :). The 16GB is on a wishlist, but it has to be a conscious purchase as it will on a onestick (which of course is more expensive) only as the TPY370 has a single memory slot. Otherwise, I'll experime...

Re: How many interest in a WQHD (2K) kit for T420s and T430s?

I am interested. Now that the cat is out of the bag and TP25 is FHD, the 2K kit is surely a must. Please count me in too.

Secondly, how is the concept going? I remember you said Javie was trying to find a different solution than kingkonglue's sacrifice of the DP port.
