Quite nice of you to do so. Kudos.

I might have to do some checking on which TPs I have and which match any of these - and if I have any dead then get the PARTS out on the forum for people.

Re: IBM USB Keyboard with UltraNav - parts replacement

People who own or just know this keyboard - it is visually similar to one from a T4x laptop. If it lacks keys or hinges under them, could they be replaced from the laptop keyboard? https://i.imgur.com/JeRx2Lu.jpg? Wow! where did you find this? What price?

Hi all, My apologies in advance if this isn't the right forum for such questions. I'm one of the weird ones who enjoys laptop keyboards with shallow key travel, especially with scissor 'switches' (actually just an enhanced rubber dome with a little cross-arm mechanism to stabilize the keycap) and I...

Re: Any way to get the model number of a W530 from a provided UPC code/ number?

Try enter the UPC-number such as this - maybe it works? Otherwise... Google! ;-) Johan Thanks that was insightful. But, not luck with the UPC I have: 639790126753 - It finds the same ebay listing and they do not wish to share Screen Resolution information, or Model number (to determine that).

Re: WTB Feeler: W530 T530 FHD 1080p Models - Also, how to fine tune Ebay search for them?

Your syntax needs to remove the commas and parentheses. I would put: thinkpad w530 -something -something etc. Then make a seperate one for t530. Recommend putting both as email updates if they this searches how you want. For example if i wanted to make a search for pre letter thinkpads i might make...

WTB Feeler: W530 T530 FHD 1080p Models - Also, how to fine tune Ebay search for them?

Currently searching Title & Description using:

thinkpad (w530,T530) (FHD,1080p) (-1600,-1366,-768,-HD,HD+)

To add and remove non FHD models. Is that negation syntax correct?

Also, can the WQHD but mod be done with a W530/s as well?

Does the WQHD mod mean the loss of external display capability in some way? Please guide.
