FS: $100 + shipping - X120e

I'm selling my X120e. I'm actually pulling the SSD and ram. These support 16GB of ram (which I have run in it for quite a while).

If you are interested, let me know.

Re: Is the x120e considered a "real" ThinkPad? and the laptop is slow, how to speed up?

I had an X60s that I really like...primarily because of the form factor AND because I was able to purchase it sans trackpad (ONLY had the trackpoint...which I love). I currently have an X120e that I too purchased back in 2011. Just recently dusted it off and installed Windows 10 on it (first time it...

Re: X120e

I maxed my X120E with 8GB ram, a 256GB SSD, a 802.11AC wifi card an a Broadcom HD decoder. I don't thing you can do more at this point aside from getting larger SSD's. The X120e will take 16GB of ram (2x8GB). I just installed Win10 on mine: http://uhhh.org/~lherzog/blog-images/Win10-X120e-tn.jpg

Re: Mouse/pointer issue with x120e and linux

Appears to be ram-related. No issues with 2x2GB ram installed. 2x4GB gives my visible video issues. And with 2x8GB, I have the before-mentioned problems. Wrong. Same issues resurfaced.

Mouse/pointer issue with x120e and linux

I am running into this issue under various installs of Linux (the latest two, Ubuntu and OpenSuSE). Happens with an external mouse, trackpoint buttons, and trackpad buttons. Basically, what happens is that the pointing device buttons are not responded to. It is like the button input is severely lagg...

Re: X201s and Ubuntu

Glad to hear most everything works out of the box (one of the great things about Linux on thinkpads, for the most part).

I am considering a X201s and would definitely be running Linux exclusively (I stay away from the nasty as much as possible)

Cool.

I'd be interested in knowing what you are going to be using to drive the monitor. Are there any Thinkpads with dual-link DVI out? Or do all of them require some sort of extended dock with a separate video card?

Trackpad question.

I know that the R(e) and X lines are the only thinkpads that don't include a trackpad. However, I thought I read that you can order replacement keyboard bezels (or whatever you call them) without the trackpad for other models. Is this true? I'd love to have a trackpad-less, modern T-series Thinkpad....
