Re: T420s/T430s FHD/WQHD upgrade kits pre-order (opening May 2017)

Yay we are back! Last year I found a kind soul who have built a Full HD T420s for a modest fee for me. Anyone up for doing it this year with a T430s? Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to buy a used T430s off eBay (we can discuss which -- but the one with Thunderbolt is mighty al...

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:

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

Why does it say x330? Is it a x230 or x301 modded? It's a modded X230, but it's called "X 3 30" due to the 13.3" screen ;) Indeed.
