Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

I'm having one small issue though and that is when I am using a dock (ultrabase 3 I think?), I'm seeing some random small glitching of the display. It's very minor and quite ...

Re: X61 Google Chrome Middle Button Scrolling

Ok, so this is now solved!

The problem was an extension in Google Chrome: Gestures for Chrome Plus by zimohan.com

Strangely enough, the other extension, Gestures for Chrome by ss-o.net works ok without affecting scrolling.

I hope this helps someone who has the same problem.

That's good to know. Does that mean that the T60 will take the asymmetrical lid too?

It's just that I want to keep the T60 usable as well.

LCD Swap from T60 to T61

I've just gotten hold of a T61 4:3 model :D

Unfortunately, it only has a 1024x768 panel.. However, I do have a spare T60 4:3 around that has a SXGA+ panel. Would it just be the case of a direct swap without having to worry about changing cables or anything like that?

Thanks
