Re: IPS replacement screen for X220

Excellent to know, thanks for the update! Does it have all the same screw mount placements as the original? Yes, same mount placements. Very painless installation. I think this X220 is a great update for me from my T60. Need to find a SSD, longer capacity battery and a dock, and I'll be set for the...

Re: IPS replacement screen for X220

I've found results to vary. Had a newer revision one which did exhibit ghosting, it just took a little longer. Many cheap IPS panels will do that, and even some high end ones. Thanks.

Re: Lenovo Press Release for ThinkPad Edge

Th EDGE seems like a copy of the macbook pro in terms of looks. Why in the world would Lenovo slap the "thinkpad" name on these laptops? And why do they keep messing with the keyboard !?

I think I should better start looking for a T60p.

Welcome to the forum. You got a nice thinkpad, and it should serve you well. Here are some answers to your questions: 1. For underclocking, you need to install some program like mobile meter or NHC or RM clock. 2. You should probably uninstall the access IBM s/w. It is outdated and lenovo does not m...

Re: Last IBM ThinkPad

Welcome to the forum!

I believe Lenovo had a hand in the design of the T4x too ... The T60 was when the transition truly happened. Maybe the X3*/T3*/R4* series was the last when thinkpads were 100% IBM. I maybe wrong, I'll wait for the more knowledgeable members to chime in :)

Re: WTB: Ultrabay Slim Travel Bezel FRU #13N5108 or 62P4331

Note - they do not make FLAT bezel in this component. It has an angled, T4X style. There is no perfectly flat FRU. Does not exist. True on both points. they don't make one you can buy. Although I have heard that with the fullsize T6x docks, you get a flat one before you pop the optical drive in.

I have had two of these keyboards, and to be honest I did not like either.
