Re: CPU in T440p

Yes, they'll work in the T440p, but NOT in T440 or T440s.

Re: What music are you listening to right now?

I'm surprised nobody seems to ever mention The Beatles!
Right now I'm listening to Abbey Road
One of their best albums IMHO.

Just spotted another Oldie but Goldie favorite of mine: Art Garfunkel's Angel Clare

Re: CPU in T440p

Those are both 35W TDP CPUs, the most powerful you can use without "overheating" the machine.
Priced from ~$75 and up.

Re: T440p ERROR 2101: Detection error on ssd1 (M.2)

You need a SATA M.2/NGFF SSD, not the very similar PCIe M.2 NGFF.
T440/T440s/T440p need the 2242 type with a B-key.
E.g. this will work: MyDigitalSSD 240GB (256GB) Super Boot 2 (SB2) 42mm (2242) SATA III (6G) M.2 NGFF SSD Solid State Drive - MDM242-SB2-0256

Re: How to craft a great X6x

Middleton's BIOS update for the X61T must be installed in Windows 7 32-bit, does NOT work in 64-bit!

But in that download there's also an .ISO included to make a self-booting CD, using e.g. ImgBurn.

Re: T440s - trick need to power on

Check the version in your BIOS by pressing F1 when booting.
Check for latest BIOS update here: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds035967
Use an external USB CD/DVD-drive for that.

Re: What mods can be applied to stock T420?

I would suggest this: - get a portable external USB3.0 500GB-1TB HDD , not SSD - COPY (and organize if needed) just the medical stuff onto that portable HDD, forget about copying Windows stuff. Rather than mod/upgrade and spend all that time and money on the T420, clean it up (new/used KB) and sell ...

Re: T7600G Overclocked Passmark Score? For Core 2 Duo Pricing/Performance Spreadsheet.

Ever heard of cpuboss?
They benchmark almost any CPU against any other CPU, e.g.: T7600G vs T7600
Not sure though if they also do overclocking,
